a hole in my heart lyrics – jewel

september settled softly
leaves are starting to fall
i recall, last time you were here
your laughter a melody that lingers still

there’s a hole in my heart
and i carry it wherever i go
like a treasure that travels with me down every road
there’s this longing lonesome and deep
kind of bitter, kind of sweet
there’s a hole in my heart in the shape of you

time stealing swiftly
children having children of their own
and around life’s merry-go round goes
and there you are wanting what you cannot hold

there’s a hole in my heart
and i carry it wherever i go
like a treasure that travels with me down every road
there’s this longing lonesome and deep
kind of bitter, kind of sweet
there’s a hole in my heart in the shape of you

even though my heart aches
there’s a smile on my face
just like a window to heaven
there’s a light shining through
this hole in my heart so i carry it wherever i go
like a treasure that travels with me down every road
there’s this longing lonesome and deep
kind of bitter, kind of sweet
there’s a hole in my heart
there’s a hole in my heart
there’s a hole in my heart in the shape of you
