Lyrics
Felt the silence like a vice
Crushing everything we had
Tearing down our new life,
Building walls up with your badge
But I never felt more safe
cuddled in your arms
Now this house feels like a cage
since you haven't been around

Best intentions bleed, my confession reads...
Now baby, since you left me...

Chorus:
Oh... the shadows of an empty house,
They haunt my dreams
My heart aches and I don't feel safe
when I hear the wind chimes scream


Sometimes when I wake up,
It's the hardest thing to do
There are no easy breakups
Just a lonely, bitter truce
Now the clock keeps pounding in my head
Along with the echoes of the things I
should have said
The day turns into night,
but you're no longer by my side

Some nights I can't close my eyes

Chorus:
Oh... the shadows of an empty house,
They haunt my dreams
My heart aches and I don't feel safe
When I hear the wind chimes scream

Bridge:
Each time the daylight breaks, my heart follows
I swallow the mistakes that lead to tomorrow
Missing you with every breath
Was it me who asked too much?
You were trained to serve & protect
Is that why you wouldn't open up?

Chorus:
Oh... the shadows of an empty house,
They haunt my dreams
My heart aches and I don't feel safe
When I hear the wind chimes scream

Killer opening, Freddy. The juxtaposition in style when the vocals come in is interesting. Wendy has a fine voice. Wonderful harmonies. Prog flavoured rock goodness. Thanks, Peter.

Zowie!
This has a kind of updated, intensified Maddy Prior or Sandy Denny feel, to me. Nice job letting the vocals lead Fred.

Intersting arrangement with the fragile vocal and the hard-driving backing. Plenty going on and it all works well together. Impressive work, Freddy!
