The Empty Palace
Here I sit in my sad empty palace
Abandoned by a woman named anything but Alice
It's located a short distance from Dallas
I never intended ill will or malice,
Three sides of my house reveal the lake
Why am I alone for goodness sake?
So, is it soul searching in which I should partake?
I wonder what kind of impression did I make?
My hollow household without her love
You might as well have murdered a dove
Heartbreak becomes the world of push and shove
Was your love really what dreams are made of?
My hollow house so sadly I lived in
Is rejection such a devastating sin?
Perhaps our chances of success were thin
Oh my dear God where have I been?
All I wanted was for us to be happy
But you would rather have been free
I longed for love that had sailed out to sea
Does it seem I'm forever melancholy?
The house that we once lived in
Just you and I and no next of kin
Was I foolishly living an illusion?
Was wanting to be loved such a sin?
Why did I think you would save me my Dear?
Forget all the implications of a career
Trying to predict the future from the rear
You never understood there was nothing to fear,
Jesus Baby you were never threatened at all
You just couldn't see the writing on the wall
You didn't want to stand behind a man so tall
There's always pride before the fall,
An empty palace should give me joy
But, there is no one here to accompany this boy
This is the Trojan horse that invaded Troy
And you wonder why sometimes I seem annoyed?
