  • September sad and softly
    Leaves are starting to fall
    I recall, last time you were here
    Your laughter a melody that lingers still

    There's a hole in my heart and I'll carry it wherever I go
    Like a treasure that travels with me down every road
    There's this longing lonesome ending kind of bitter, kind of sweet
    There's a hole in my heart in the shape of you

    Time stealing swiftly
    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'll carry it wherever I go
    Like a treasure that travels with me down every road
    There's this longing lonesome ending 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
    Just like a window to heaven
    There's a light shining through

    This hole in my heart and so I'll carry it wherever I go
    Like a treasure that travels with me down every road
    There's this longing lonesome ending kind of bitter, kind of sweet
    There's a hole in my heart
    There's a hole in my heart
    There's a hole in my heart in the shape of you Writer/s: DALLAS DAVIDSON, DAVID LEE, JEWEL KILCHER
