“This music crept by me upon the waters”

a sad breakup song. when there's no longer any love left, any fight left, when a relationship is just empty... after all the battles, all that's left is a wasteland.

Carson played an antique Rhodes electric piano. Alex and his improved jams twist around each other beautifully.


Do you ever wonder
why it always ends the same
There's no tears left to cry
No one ever wins this game

And here we stand
Our hearts in hand
Broken and alone
In this wasteland
We used to call home

do you ever stop and wonder
when it all just fell apart?
do you still recall a time
there was space inside our hearts

now its a wasteland
where we now stand
we're all alone
in this wasteland
we used to call home

Do you ever ask yourself
When we didn't even care
When we took all we could take
When we weren't even there

Cause nothing's left
In this empty nest
We're on our own
In this wasteland
We used to call home

Bitter seeds we planted grew
Til there was nothing left to do
Nothing left 'tween me and you

When you look around this place
And it's just an empty space
Didn't even leave a trace

Do you ever wonder
How we ended up this way
Something inside broke
There's nothing more to say

heading down the road
don't even know
Just slipped through our hands
And leave this wasteland
we used to call home

It's just a wasteland
We used to call home
