Running on Empty

Nothing in the fridge
or in the cupboards
Just a few out-of-date
things

(Chorus)
She’s running
on empty
Ain’t it always
the way
That’s life and
the same it’ll stay

Her stomach rumbles
as she counts her change
Her bottle full of
coppers, not much more

(Chorus)
She’s running
on empty
Ain’t it always
the way
That’s life and
the same it’ll stay

He bank empty
wages all gone
Bills paid
but still behind

(Chorus)
She’s running
on empty
Ain’t it always
the way
That’s life and
the same it’ll stay

She lives in
hope though
For hope is
all she has that’s full
