Tori Kelly – Hollow lyrics

[Verse 1]
I don't wanna be the last man standing
I don't wanna be the lonely one
Picking petals when the party's over
No, it's not any fun

[Pre-Chorus]
Cause I'm fragile
And you know this


[Chorus]
So hold me
Wrap me in love
, fill up my cup
Empty and only your love can fill up my cup
Cause I'm hollow
Yeah, I'm hollow, oh oh oh
Cause I'm hollow
Yeah, I'm hollow, oh oh oh


[Verse 2]
I don't wanna be the first one folding
I don't wanna be the joker heart
Tell me, darling, will you understand me?
And not show me your cards?

[Pre-Chorus]
Cause I'm paper-thin
And you, you make me whole again


[Chorus]
So hold me
Wrap me in love, fill up my cup
Empty and only your love can fill up my cup
Cause I'm hollow
Yeah, I'm hollow, oh oh oh
Cause I'm hollow
Yeah, I'm hollow, oh oh oh

[Bridge]
I confess (yeah), my weakness
Til you pick up the parts that are broken
Pour out your perfection on me now


[Chorus]
And hold me
Wrap me in love, fill up my cup
Empty, cause only your love can fill up my cup
So hold me
Wrap me in love, fill up my cup
Empty and only your love can fill up my cup
Cause I'm hollow
Yeah, I'm hollow, oh oh oh
Cause I'm hollow
Yeah, I'm hollow, oh oh oh
Cause I'm hollow (yeah)
Yeah, I'm hollow, oh oh oh (oh yeah)
Cause I'm hollow (I'm hollow)
Yeah, I'm hollow, oh oh oh

    He song describes a hollow life becoming filled with love, which Kelly attributes to her faith, describing "Hollow" as her "love song to God. Only by confessing our weaknesses to Jesus, can we allow Him to work with our broken pieces. Tori’s heartfelt “pour out Your perfection on me now” is enough to leave anyone breathless. Confessing always seems to feel like it’s the hardest part to do because yet again, you don’t want to appear feeble. However, God knows your heart and the most precious thing about it all is that He won’t allow you to stay "Hollow" forever.
