  • Now and then
    Your name comes up in conversation with my friends
    I hate how much I feel it right there in my chest
    I hate how much I feel it, yeah
    Like, how are you?
    It seems like things are going really well for you
    I wish that I could say the same about me too
    I wish that I could say the same

    And boy, you know I've tried to pray, I've bruised my knees
    I've tried to bring you back to me
    I've tried my best to find some kind of peace
    Don't you see?

    There's a big black hole where my heart used to be
    And I've tried my best to fill it up with things I don't need
    It don't work like that, no, it's not easy
    To fill this gap that you left in me
    There's a big black hole where my heart used to be
    And I wish that you would realize I'm all that you need
    It don't work like that, no, it's not easy
    To fill this gap that you left in me

    Without a trace
    You disappeared and took some of me with you, babe
    Like the way I used to laugh until my belly ached
    Well, that's all gone away now, yeah

    And boy, you know I've tried to pray, I've bruised my knees
    I've tried to bring you back to me
    I've tried my best to find some kind of peace
    Don't you see?

    There's a big black hole where my heart used to be
    And I've tried my best to fill it up with things I don't need
    It don't work like that, no, it's not easy
    To fill this gap that you left in me
    There's a big black hole where my heart used to be
    And I wish that you would realize I'm all that you need
    It don't work like that, no, it's not easy
    To fill this gap that you left in me (that you left in me)

    Oh, oh, oh, oh (there's such a big black hole)
    Oh, oh, oh, oh
    Oh, oh, oh, oh (that you left in me)
    Oh, oh, oh, oh

    There's a big black hole where my heart used to be
    And I've tried my best to fill it up with things I don't need
    It don't work like that, no, it's not easy
    To fill this gap that you left in me (oh, that you left in me)
    There's a big black hole where my heart used to be (oh, yeah, you left in me)
    And I wish that you would realize I'm all that you need (no)
    It don't work like that, no, it's not easy (oh no, it's not easy)
    To fill this gap that you left in me (that you left in me) Writer/s: Frederik Castenschiold Eichen, Peter John Rees Rycroft, Sarah Faith Griffiths
