"He who forgets, will be destined to remember..."

Josh Ritter - Empty Hearts

Oh save all of your light for those who can’t sleep at night
and they can’t even sing to their shadows
oh they ride into town and they throw the shots down, and they save the last round for the windows,
singing
don’t let me into this year with an empty heart, with an empty heart
don’t let me into this year with an empty heart

I’m inside with my friends;
we build fires and pretend that the night could just bend on forever,
while outside in the frost are the wolves and the frost
and we sing to the dogs or whoever
singing
don’t let me into this year with an empty heart, with an empty heart
don’t let me into this year with an empty heart

There’s a friend that I have; and for her, I’ll go back..
you see, all these empties that I’m holding, they’re too much for a man;
empty arms, empty hands..
and she’ll know me by the sound of my hoping
singing
don’t let me into this year with an empty heart, with an empty heart
don’t let me into this year with an empty heart …
