Jake Worthington “A Lot of Room to TalkLyric Video

There's An Echo in This Room
It Just Won't Let Me Be
All The Angry Words To Her
They Keep Comin' Back To Me

I Can Hear Them In The Hall
Yeah, They're Bouncing Off The Wall
I Can't Believe Its Come To This
All This Emptiness
And A Lot Of Room To Talk

I Should've Listened More To Her
When She Was Still Around
I Guess I Got What I Deserve
I Sure Do Hear Her Now

What Good Is Pride Now That She's Gone
When Did Our House Stop Being Home
Now There's Too Many What Ifs, Opportunities I Missed
And A Lot Of Room To Talk

I Always Thought She'd Be Around
Never Planned On, Missin' Her
But In This New Life, That She's Found
Has Left Me Lost, For Words

There's an Echo In This Room
Until It Goes Away
I'll Look Into The Past
And Learn From My Mistakes
I'll Admit It When I'm Wrong
I'll Find The Strength & I'll Move On
Maybe I Can Grow From This
But For Now It's Emptiness
And A Lot Of Room To Talk

Oh, Maybe I Can Grow From This
But For Now It's Emptiness
And A Lot Of Room To Talk
