Performances (92)

September settles softly 
Leaves are starting to fall 
I recall the 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 
There's 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 
cause just like a window to heaven 
there's a light shining through 
This hole in my heart 
so I will carry it wherever I go 
like a treasure that travels 
with me down every road

There's this longing and it's lonesome and it's deep 
Kind of bitter, and it's kind of sweet 
There's a hole in my heart 
There's a hole in my heart 
There's a hole in my heart 
But it's in the shape of you

Flower of Life
“I wrote this for a friend of mine that passed away of cancer. I’d written another song for her called “Violet Eyes,” shortly after she died, and this revisits my feelings 15 years later. Losing someone you love very dearly is so painful; you just wish the pain would go away. But after time I started to see that pain as a little treasure because it was something that reminded me of her. I was driving down the road and had this idea that I had a hole in my heart that is in the shape of you. There’s a beauty to mourning and missing somebody and holding them in your heart. It’s sort of like a little window into heaven you can see them through.” Picking Up the Pieces Press Release
