A Hole In My Heart

A hole in my heart

The past threads through

The past’s not dead

It’s living here too

I am who I am

And I am who I was

Nothing will last

And nothing is lost

Paying for comfort

With fear and regrets

Today is a loan

That tomorrow collects

A hole in my heart

My mind looks through

I’m not alone

You’re living here too
