Divorcee goes to the bars
A sophisticat pulls up in his car
A hopeful youth waits for the first star to come out
The sky above can be so mean, the clouds cover what should be seen
And there ain't much left to keen in my book

Hangin' on to someone else, he tells you that peace sells
And you see him like all's well, I ain't jealous
Though you used to listen to me,
My inner thoughts have made you flee
I know you were just tryin' to be what you want to be

I let you in to see me for real
And you walked right out that's what I feel
You said you needed time to be alone

Chorus:
And like the youth I looked above
Feeling stranded without love
The time was wrong, and you left me in a hole
You left me in hole (you left me in a hole)
You left me in hole

The rain it comes, the rain it goes
The question is, she friend or foe
The story-teller looks to his toes, he's stuck here
The dragon's breath is on my neck
Which way is home, hold on a sec
The bartender put a bottle of beer on the table

Many people, they believe that Jesus came here to relieve
All the problems that we breathe on each other
And I don't care just what you do,
Or what you think, that's up to you
You see, those thoughts of yours are not new to me at all

And is it these thoughts that made you believe
That there's nothing here so you shall leave
While I sit here with my guitar in my hand

[ Chorus ]

A hungry baby starts to cry, an old man's about to die
And all I can do is sit back and sigh, what's my problem
Ignore the problem, that's the key
Said the woman beneath the tree
If your eyes are closed, you can't see the sunrise

The phone, it rings, who could it be
Well, it ain't her, and it's not for me
Forgetting's as easy as 1-2-3 my friends say
Her face is still all too clear, her leaving me was my biggest fear
Something's got to help me steer away from her

You have your life, and I have mine,
Maybe we'll meet again some other time
Down the long road, on another plain

[ Chorus ]

You left me in hole (you left me in a hole)...
