Hole in Your Heart

Summer heat soaked through the sheets
and kept me up all night
You stayed so quiet there next to me,
I held myself and tried
To get a grip and make some sense of
the distance in between
The promise of a future
that I ain’t ever seen

Though taking time is wasting time,
I gave you what you asked
I held you tight for one more night,
as long as you could last
But staring at the ceiling,
I knew it was a lie
You said you’d always love me,
but you didn’t even try to fix

The hole
in your heart,
the hole
in your heart
I should’ve known,
should’ve seen from the start
Maybe it’s the hole in your heart

People grow and people change,
it’s just a fact of life
But don’t you find it kind of strange
it happened overnight?
See, I’m the kind of person
who waits right through the rain
Guess you’re the kind of person
who runs and hides and blames it on

The hole
in your heart,
the hole
in your heart
I should’ve known,
should’ve seen from the start
Maybe it’s the hole in your heart

Oh love,
Now I know the reason why you go, love
Nothing wrong with leaving when there’s no love
Left inside your empty chest
But like you said it, no regrets
So what did I expect from the

The hole
in your heart,
the hole
in your heart
I should’ve known,
should’ve seen from the start
Maybe it’s the hole in your heart
Maybe it’s the hole in your heart
Maybe it’s the hole in your heart
