Holes

Janis Ian/Jon Vezner

There are holes in my shoes
There are holes in my clothes
There's a hole in my heart
where you used to go - my heart
There's a hole in my lips
where you used to kiss me
A hole in the hole
and nobody fits me now - oh, now

And I could find somebody new
There's a lot of fish in the sea
but every time I see one next to you
I know this hole's where mMy soul wants to be

There's a hole in the wall
where my fist found your face
There's a hole in the soul
of the whole human race - your face
Holes in the flesh
Holes in the bone
Holes in this bed
where I now dance alone - our home

And I could find somebody new
There's a match for every flame
Any time I strike one next to you
I know that hole will never be the same

There's a crack in the world
where it holds up the sky
and it bleeds from the mouth
and it foams from the eye
There's a hole in this desert
my life has become
I am rock, I am stone
I am blind and deaf and dumb

There are holes in my shoes
Holes in my clothes
Holes in my heart
where you used to go - my heart

And I could find somebody new
and finally be set free
but every time I see someone with you
I know that hole's where my soul wants to be
