lyrics

HOLE IN MY HEART

You dug a hole in my heart
Saying it was her that you need
Now every sweet smelling girl
Tries to fill it with debris

Darling darling darling
May I live to see
You down in that grave
Making love to me

You blinded my trusting eyes
Without a cane I walk the streets
Now all my true friends tell me
That my sunglasses look real neat

Darling darling darling
May you come to be
Deep down in that grave
Making love to me

You cut off my loving tongue
Without a word you left me
No way of calling new love
To smile and bring me ease, bring me ease

Darling darling darling
May you come back to me
No words to beg forgiveness
Lay down and silently plead

You dug a hole in my heart
Said he’s the one that you need
And left me hopeless for love
Unless you crawl back on your knees

Darling darling darling
May I live to see
You down in that grave
Making love to me
