One of my favourite songs by Del Amitri is Empty from their second album, Waking Hours.

Right now, at a very difficult time for me – at the end of a very difficult year, in fact – I am feeling empty. Pretty much every emotion has sloshed its way through my body in the last year, but now it feels that the tank is finally empty. And just maybe that’s a good thing…. a chance to rebuild and recharge my batteries.

As the song Empty says:

‘Cos at least a house when it’s empty
Stays clean
