Song Lyric Sunday An Empty Glass

Thanks to Helen for the prompt this week. When I was a young girl, my father loved to listen to Peggy Lee. I grew up on that glorious, sultry voice. Although my personal favorite will always be “Is that all there is?” I understood “when he left, I thought I’d die, but I didn’t. And I thought to myself ‘is that all there is … to love?'” Oh yeah.

That being said, as I grew up, “An Empty Glass” became more and more significant. “Deep inside I knew, you were too good to be true.”

So pop out to Helen’s blog and check out all the great responses toΒ  Song Lyric Sunday – GlassΒ Β and by all means, give the song a listen over on whatever music app you like to use. It’s well worth the effort.

Enjoy ~Peace ~JPP

An Empty Glass

Close the door and pull the blinds
Fill your glass, but don’t fill mine
Here’s to you now for the last time
Here’s to me your sometime past time
Here’s to love, an empty glass

Feeling low, but it will pass
With some coffee, demitasse
Black and strong and very bitter
I can think of nothing fitter
For a lover, second class

Deep inside I guess I knew
You were too good to be true
Still it rocked me to discover
You would kiss and run for cover
When I started loving you

Nothing could have made it last
Say goodbye and say it fast
Here’s to you now for the last time
Here’s to me your sometime past time
Here’s to love, an empty glass

Lyrics courtesy of my memory (which is often faulty) any discrepancies should be viewed as an all natural variations and not flaws. πŸ˜‰

  1. I love to listen to songs from my childhood and songs that bring back memories of my family. Great song choice today – Peggy Lee does a fantastic job on this song.
