Empty Decorations

Empty Decorations by Indecisive
Soundtrack for the Malaysian comedy series, Kopitiam.

I wake in the dark
Showers of light
Moments of emptiness around
Floating away
No rays of hope
Reality brings me to the ground

What can I do?
What can I say?
I need a place to hide away
Just for a while, just for a smile
Just for the life I used to know

For every song was filled with words of love and not of anger
What if they go?
What if they leave me far behind?

'Cause I don't wanna be alone.. (uh oh)
Living life for on my own (uh oh)
I don't want to live my life in isolation
Filled with empty decorations
'Cause I wanna be with people that I know
Who would do the things I do (uh oh)
Making all my dreams come true (uh oh)
I don't recognize the shadows at my door
Though I've seen them all before
Because the only thing I really want..
Is to be with you....

I look at the sky,
That looks back at me
I'm getting a silent melody
I know that I'm here
And I am lost
Alone and confusion by the breeze
Hiding my face, crying alone
I need to find my way back home
Back to the place
The wonderful days
Livin' the life I used to know

For every smile was born out of the love and our sincerity
And every tear from all the glowing joy

[chorus]x2
'Cause I don't wanna be alone.. (uh oh)
Living life for on my own (uh oh)
I don't want to live my life in isolation
Filled with empty decorations
'Cause I wanna be with people that I know
Who would do the things I do (uh oh)
Making all my dreams come true (uh oh)
I don't recognize the shadows at my door
Though I've seen them all before
Because the only thing I really want..
Is to be with you....

Is to be with you
Living life for on my own (uh oh)
I don't wanna live my life in isolation
Filled with empty decorations
'Cause I wanna be with people that I know
Who would do the things I do (uh oh)
Making all my dreams come true (uh oh)
I don't recognize the shadows at my door
Though I've seen them all before
Because the only thing I really want..
Is to be with you....

Wonderful song for a wonderful comedy series. =) Lyrics taken from moKHa Cafe.

Heh - Douglas Lim was a TESL trainee teacher in my alma mater, heard he got bullied around by 13 and 14 year olds, ha ha. Unfortunately my friend (who asked him for tabs to Empty Decorations) is less impressed by him after they met cos he didn't give her a complete set of tabs or something.

Andy said...

Well, trainee teachers are prone to be bullied... =P

But by 13 and 14-year olds? That's sad lah wei... ha ha. It's what I heard from friends' siblings that he taught during his time spent in Taman S.E.A., ha ha....
