Empty Nest Blues


AFewLyricsReminiscing about when your babies flew the coop? Or are you in that empty nest right now?  You’re filling the gap with work? Keeping in touch, and in love?  Then take heart;  the broody moodiness can disappear in a fluffy puff of happiness – especially if you  know the right song to sing! Well here it is – I wrote it especially to help you through – or, if you’re already in your new stage, to bring back tender memories.   It’s called the …


Empty Nest Blues
© Radha Sahar, 2009

Seven thousand and seventy days …
( … and this is home for you – always)
You’ve flown the coop! I know you’re over the moon
You breeze on down the open road
My heart was glued to you y’ know
And now it’s come unstuck…hope I see y’ soon

Who’ s got the empty nest blues?
Emptyness blues
My chickadee! You’re gone! What will I do?
It’s all so quiet! So much space!
My heart is spillin’ all over the place
Confess I got the empty nest blues

I’ll get used to it, I guess
I miss the familiar noise and mess
I fluff the cushions, hoover, dust and clean
I’ve got big plans – lots to do
But all I think about is you
I’m a sentimental chook – y’ know what I mean

“This chicken’s crossing the road!” you laughed
As my heart quietly broke in half
I miss the chaos, but I tell ya I miss you more
Strange I’m smilin’ – don’t ask me why
I’m proud you’re ready.  I know you’ll fly!
I blessed you as I finally closed the door

Who’ s got the empty nest blues?
Emptiness blues
My chickadee! You’ve gone! What will I do?
Now don’t you worry – I’m not on the shelf
Got a brand new mission to find myself
You’re smilin’ and encouraging me to
Say goodbye to the empty nest blues!

    WHEN THE CHILDREN ARE GONE
    When the children are gone And we sit at the window,
    looking out at the feet passing by,
    When the children are gone and theres only you and I,
    All the years that we wished for these moments of peace,
    Can they now become more than a bore? When the children are gone, Will we love each other more?
    Bridge
    When the children are gone, And we lie down together Reaching out for the closeness
    We thought was once there, Will we find something left. Besides cartons of long out-grown dream And sweet memries of them we can share?

    When the children are gone, Will we look at the space left behind and go on as before Or will we wish that wed given them more? When the children are gone,
    Back to bridge
    When the children are gone, And we lie down together Reaching out for the closeness
    We thought was once there, Will we find something left. Besides cartons of long out-grown dream And sweet memries of them we can share?

    When the children are gone, Will we say our goodbyes, And go on no more wise than before? Or have we got some surprises in store When the children are gone,
    Will we turn to each other, For the warmth of a lover? Can it be well discover what we dreamed all along? Can a lullaby become a love song WHEN THE CHILDREN ARE GONE?

    I feel touched, happy and inspired. How beautyfull you express this depth, a lovesong from our experiences as mothers. Makes me feel connected to all mothers. Your songs work well as poems.

  3. I really relate to this one.

  4. Good point about letting go – it’s always special when a lyric can apply on several different levels. Thanks for your insight & feedback.

  5. What a wonderful song! So simple and true. In some ways this songs message can really be applied to so many areas of letting go in life.
    Our wonder filled lives.
    Bless.
