Beth Crowley - Empty Words Lyrics



You left
Needed to find yourself
Just an excuse to go and
Look for someone else
You're back
You're thinking just like that
I can forgive
But let me tell you what
I can't forget
Me standing there
As you walked away
Ignoring me when I was
Begging you to stay
You never turned around
Not even once
While I called your name
Said is this what you really want

But they were empty words
Now I'm way too numb to ever let them hurt
You didn't get the best of me
I rescued what was left of me
So save it
You can keep your empty words

You're here
Through crocodile tears
You make your case
Describing how much you have changed
You're sure
'Cause it's always worked before
You can persuade me
You won't doubt your feelings anymore
So confident
But you'll be surprised
It took awhile but I can finally recognize
I'm so much better off
With someone else
Who can see what they have
When it's right in front of them

And won't give me empty words
Now I'm way too numb to ever let them hurt
You didn't get the best of me
I rescued what was left of me
So save it
You can keep your empty words

Don't need your empty words
Now I'm way too numb to ever let them hurt
You didn't get the best of me
I rescued what was left of me
Save it
You can keep your empty words

  19. Misty Henry

    9 years after my divorce from a domestically abusive ex-husband, he is obsessed with driving me to the grave, obsessed with getting "revenge" on me for trying to move on after separating from him, and having my third and final child, a son, without him. For nearly ten years now, he had been angry that my son doesn't share his genes.

    This spring, his obsessive behavior and lies caused me a stroke, double pneumonia, a perforated bowel needing abdominal surgery, migraines, right side weakness, loss of balance and income, and forced early retirement. He has made it clear he is angry it is not enough, and that I should have died, and deprived our daughters and my son of their mother and home. That is how abusive and selfish he is.

    Right now, he has manipulated our justice system in Grant County, IN into believing I went out to eat with my friends last November just to invade their privacy, by lying to them and telling them I knew they were there. Truth be told, I didn't, and my friends had me penned into our booth. Didn't matter-I was still arrested for going out to eat by Grant County, IN. I am an Air Force veteran, but it appears I gave away four years of my life just to have my right to eat out in public taken away.

    Domestic violence abusers have more rights in this country still today than do their victims. I am a fine example of that. Instead of finding help, I am brushed aside, called crazy, arrested for eating at a restaurant, ignored when I call for help. That is what a domestic violence survivor military veteran can expect in Grant County, Indiana.

    I beg him to stay in my life but he said he doesn't even care even if i die right now😢

    Akayla Molin

    I may not know you, but there is one thing know for sure. You need to make yourself feel and believe and recognize that there is someone out there who will love you. Nobody will judge you. You can do anything to feel better. Go shopping, get your nails done, or anything you like really. Prove him wrong. Show him he will miss you. Show him you dont need him to care, and that you only need yourself to care. Dont just think these words. Believe them. I hope you find the right person for you. 💛💛💛

    BTS PAVED THE WAY

    @Akayla Molin just yesterday i decided that he doesn't care anymore to be honest i tried to suicide yesterday i just came from hospital but he doesn't care. ... Well.... Thank you for your concern i will do it as you said💜💜

    Akayla Molin

    @BTS PAVED THE WAY that's good. You don't need him anyway. And for the future, please don't ever try that again. There are so many people who love you. Thank you for realizing you didn't need him. I hope things get better for you 💛💛💛

  25. Youssef Mohammed

    How come she's not well know like other singers
    Hell, she's a natural born singer and songwriter

  26. Trashie Starr

    This video made me feel emotions I don’t like to think about anymore...
    This reminds me of an awful father and a loser ex-boyfriend *You Grow Ladies*

    I hope you will be always strong😢

  33. Jeff Baldwin

    She writes beautiful music

  34. nottheone yourelookingfor

    I'm the bad guy in this song. I made decisions that ended up costing me my marriage of 20 years. I was such a damned fool. I wish I could take back everything. I caused her so much pain. So much. She didn't deserve one bit of it. She is healing and doing really well now. Me, on the other hand... the regret and guilt is crushing me. I don't know what to do about it. I miss her so much.

    Toadluvinlady 80

    My thoughts and prayers are with you. Guilt is a heavy burden to carry. The hardest part is...You must forgive yourself.

  35. Norma Hayden

    I need to rescue what’s left of me if I have the strength. Not easy after 30 years together.

  36. Nikki Thompson

    I think this song is amazing ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

  37. star rider 300

    This is so incredible

  38. Sam

    Stunning as usual. Your songs pack a serious emotional punch and deliver universal truths in an inexplicably elegant way. I adore your music and your personality in videos. Keep up the amazing work! I’m so proud of you and how far you’ve come over the past few years and I’m glad to be able to participate in your artistic journey. Much love <3

    Sam

    The first video of yours I saw was the first version of 2007 on the piano and it really spoke to me and some of the struggles I’ve faced in my own life. I bought the porcelain heart album as soon as it came out and listened to the songs on repeat non-stop for months. I still know all the words to songs I probably haven’t listened to in at least three years because they’re so memorable and well done. I don’t keep up with your uploads very consistently, I’ll admit. But when I do pop in to check on how things are going, you never fail to amaze me with fresh, awe-inspiring music.

  39. hailey g

    He used me and made me feel like shit. He came to me when he felt like it.
    He hurt me more times than I can count
    He broke me
    He built me back up
    And did it all over again
    Jokes on him
    He never got to see
    The real me

    Mark Person

    hailey g I love it cuz it reminds of my ex, and yes I’m s girl just my brother old account I’m using

  40. Nicolle Chapman

  41. Sabarin Adrina

    basically this is the story of my life

  42. Julie Gesele

    There are times that I wish I could never feel anything anymore. Just shut down. 2019 has been really bad I lost my aunt and was in a car crash that might have traumatized me. Before that for as long as I can remember I hated myself and have struggled with how I was feeling and still refuse to believe I have a problem at least out loud. I hate life and I hate feeling and I wish they could both just end

    Joe Joker

    Julie Gesele don't end ur life 🍀 it'll heal in time 💪juz have faith 🎀

  46. Dope Dino

    Just found out that my crush is now dating my best friend. He knew I liked him, sad thing is is that my birthday is tomorrow... my friend didn’t know I liked him because I didn’t tell her. She liked him, too, apparently...

    This is one of the many, many reasons I try not to feel.

    Whitney Jackson

    I'm so sorry that happened to you hun. Stay strong, you got this. You deserve so much more.

    Maureen Parsons

    Your friend got the good, but you're getting the great. Keep moving, take care and godbless.

  47. Esmeralda Garcia

    Just read and watched "Call me by your Name" would love if you made a song about it! ❤

  48. AceBunny

    When this beautiful and heartbreaking song was first uploaded I watched it and it reminded of my friend in some ways.
    My friend was in a toxic relationship with her girlfriend. She would tell us that her girlfriend would complain and act like the victim while crying and manipulated her. Her girlfriend who would tell her that she "loves her" although, just doesn't show it. My friend talked to us, and soon they broke up and now she is way happier.

  49. Elena Elizabeth

    It really reminds me of a musical song I love it

  50. zycuhmii

    You are a very good songwriter, i must say indeed

    I love this😍😍

  57. Dear Diary

    I feel sick 😭😭😭

  58. Kitty Zae

    I loooove your songs 😍

  59. Star Slaps

    This song really hit me deep. My boyfriend who was going to marry me left me a few months after I saw my brother kill himself. He claimed he was sick of being my therapist, while I was trying to figure out how to heal and handle ptsd. Next thing I know he was dating someone else. And their relationship date was still around the same time we were still dating and when I found out that hurt like hell. But I rescued what was left of me, and I’m too numb to ever let his words hurt. If he ever comes back, he can keep his empty words. I hate the circumstances in finding out who he really was, but I’m glad I found out. I would never leave someone during their darkest hours. No one deserves that.

    Spork Bitch

    He sounds like an asshole.

    George Figueroa

    Your a very strong person sorry for your lost be strong yea i know it's not easy but your a beautiful person

    George Figueroa

    Hope your doing good it's hard but be strong and remember when a person in a relationship leaves you they were never important trust me after 8 years my girlfriend left me for a friend of mine and the joke is i treated her like a queen helped her raised her 3 children right now it hurts like hell but at the end karma will come but you better be strong and don't give up on me and yourself and the world you are a beautiful person and you have helped me through my hell so see you help people so don't give up please i need your love and your strength power faith and hope you be good don't disappoint me stay strong love you
