Lyric:
 

Yeah

An empty heart is like an empty life
I said an empty heart is like an empty life
Well, it makes you feel like you want to cry
Like you want to cry

Well you've been my lover for a long, long time
Well you left me all alone to spend my time

I want my lover again
I want it back again

Yeah, let's take it
Yeah, a little bit (...)
Take it down
Let's take it down
Yeah, take it down

Come on back to me, baby
Come on back to me and I'll show you
I'll show it

That an empty heart means a empty life
Yeah, an empty heart is like an empty life
Oh, it makes you feel like you want to die
Like you want to die
