"Dee's lyrics for Petula's music fit like a glove. They are so artistically attuned to each other that you feel a mutual lyricism and dramatic sense coming through each song." 

- Paul Bateman

Empty Spaces
(Dee Shipman / Petula Clark)

So here I've erased the past
But where do I go to find
A future
A feeling
To fill the void left behind...........?

The soothing sands of time
The healing hands of time
Have eased the pains away.........
But what remains today
Inside of me?
What now replaces

The empty spaces
Of times and feelings now gone?
From where I wander alone
To a future that's still unknown

To empty spaces
Of seeds that wait to be sown
Where skies that long to be flown
Are now bidding my heart "Come home.........

Come home
How lonely you've been away
You're only a dream away
From where your place is..........."

Where loving faces
Will be there waiting for me
When I am finally free
Of the empty spaces
Inside of me
