Passenger – Holes lyrics

Well I know a man with nothing in his hands
Nothing but a rolling stone
He told me 'bout when his house burned down
And he lost everything he owned

He lay asleep for six whole weeks
They were gonna ask his mother to choose
When he woke up with nothing
He said "I'll tell you something
When you've got nothing
You've got nothing to lose"


"Now I've got a hole in my pocket
A hole in my shirt
A whole lot of trouble" he said
"But now the money's gone
Life carries on
And I miss it like a hole in the head"

Well I know a woman with kids around her ankles
And a baby on her lap
She said one day her husband went to get a paper
And the mother fucker never came back


Mortgage to pay and four kids to raise
Keeping the wolf from the door
She said "the wolf's just a puppy
And the door's double locked
So why you gotta worry me for? "

"Cuz he left a hole in my heart
A hole in a promise
A hole on the side of my bed
Oh but now that he's gone
Well life carries on
And I miss him like a hole in the head"

Well sometimes you can't change
And you can't choose
And sometimes it seems you gain
Less than you lose

Now we've got holes in our hearts
Yeah, we've get holes in our lives
Well we've got holes
We've got holes
But we carry on

Said we've got holes in our hearts
Yeah, we've got holes in our lives
Well we've got holes
We've got holes
But we carry on

Yeah, we've got holes in our hearts
Yeah, we've get holes in our lives
Well we've got holes
We've got holes
But we carry on

Said we've got holes in our hearts
We've get holes in our lives
We've got holes
We've got holes
But we carry on

Said we've got holes in our hearts
We've get holes in our lives
We've got holes
We've got holes
But we carry on

Now we've got holes in our hearts
Yeah we've get holes in our lives
Well we've got holes
We've got holes
But we carry on
