The song «Empty» by JYJ caught my attention because of two reasons. Fist one is that the song is full English. And the second one… well, one good reason is enough, is not it? The song is rather old. So let’s give it a second life.
Original «Empty» lyrics are on the left. The answering lyrics are on the right. I put it like that to make sure the answer corresponds to music as well. So if any girl is brave enough to sing that, make a try :)
«Let ‘em go» is «Let them go» because in nowadays English it is possible to use «they» meaning both «he» and «she». Or you may sing «Let ‘im go» (that is «Let him go») instead though it’ll ruin the whole philosophy of the verse. The girl is not talking about herself. She is always thinking and talking of him as well. I really don’t know how she would live without him after all. So I added that «After we’ve met» part that ends without music, fading like the last cry of hope.
