Album: The Very Best Of The Eagles (2003)
Charted: 69 69
  • There's a hole in the world tonight
    There's a cloud of fear and sorrow
    There's a hole in the world tonight
    Don't let there be a hole in the world tomorrow

    They say that anger is just love disappointed
    They say that love is just a state of mind
    But all this fighting over who will be anointed
    Oh, how can people be so blind?

    There's a hole in the world tonight
    There's a cloud of fear and sorrow
    There's a hole in the world tonight
    Don't let there be a hole in the world tomorrow

    Oh, they tell me there's a place over yonder
    Cool water running through the burning sand
    Until we learn to love one another
    We will never reach the promised land

    There's a hole in the world tonight
    There's a cloud of fear and sorrow
    There's a hole in the world tonight
    Don't let there be a hole in the world tomorrow Writer/s: Don Henley, Glenn Frey

  • Joni from Louisville, Kywhy is Creed's 'With Arms Wide Open' playing on this You Tube video? thought it would 'Hole in the World.'
  • Breanna from Craryville, Nythis song is great i wanted to cry the first time i hared it i listened to the song at least 20 times that day to find a meaning well i kinda thought it was a tragic thing and it sounds as if all your ideas are right thanks for the help
  • Farrah from Elon, NcIt's my favorite Eagles song of all time.
  • Hailey from Madison Heights, VaDon did write this song along with the help of his band mates and it was a tribute to 9/11. it's messege can be read as anyone who can read. the messege is that hope is not destroyed, it is only injured and that we can rse above and be even stronger. and it also teaches love and compassion. it says in the first verse "They say that anger is just love disappointed.
    They say that love is just a state of mind,
    But all this fighting over who will be anointed.
    Oh how can people be so blind" and n the second verse "Oh they tell me there's a place over yonder,
    Cool water running through the burning sand,
    Until we we learn to love one
    Another we never reach the promised land." and all that is being said is that all we need to do is love each other

  • Tj from Woodbridge, Vathat thing up there is wrong. don heley started writing this after he found out what happened on 9/11. and the "dont let there be a hole in the world tomarrow" is telling us to never give up what we have(freedom). and we will NEVER forget.
  • Sara Mackenzie from Middle Of Nowhere, Flit's such a sad, sad song,but it gives hope to a better tomorrow with the notion that love will save us all in a corrupt, hating world.
  • Andy from Chattanooga, TnDon Henley's public comments support Jake's comment. The Eagles, just off a successful tour of Russia and Eastern Europe, were supposed to enter the studio on 9/11/2001. He says that they began writing this song on the evening of that day.
