plug that hole/soul searchin

Plug that hole

Sorry babe I never returned your call

Times been busy since you left me

Hell I’ve been on a pub crawl

And all the things you never allowed

Seen friends I thought I’d lost

It’s been nice not having you around

Free to roam and just chill

Come and go as I like

Life tastes sweeter than your poisoned pill

How on earth did I put up with it for so long

Guess I was just too soft

Yet somehow I struggled along

Chorus

You just love to take control

Don’t be sad your not all bad

But you gotta plug that hole

The one that’s missing from your soul

Yea just plug that hole

Find yourself a new goal

I just got your email

No need to tell me how you feel

For life will always prevail

I’ve seen them scares before

Funny but since you’ve gone

they ain’t there anymore

Don’t mean to be so cold

But you taught me too well

That all that glistens is not gold

So I gotta go forward

Find a soul that’s whole

Guess you thought I never would

Chorus

You just love to take control

Don’t be sad your not all bad

But you gotta plug that hole

The one that’s missing from your soul

Yea just plug that hole

Find yourself a new goal

Soul searching

I remember rushing home at the end of the day

And of how we used to spend the weekends

Now I search for a reason to stay away

And you spend all your time at a friends

Can’t help but wonder where it all went

Loves kindness and gentle grace

Now we are on a path that’s hell bent

And the lines are showing on your face

Chorus

This is just not working

Time for us to do some soul searching

I’m tiered of all the anger we’re spurting

Gotta find a way to stop the hurting

Close the door, shut out the light

We’ve got some thinking to do tonight

We used to dance and dine

Tell each other everything

It’s obvious we’re in decline

For our hearts can no longer sing

So before we fade to grey

And hope grows too thin

Before we throw it all away

We’ve got to look deep within

Chorus

This is just not working

Time for us to do some soul searching

I’m tiered of all the anger we’re spurting

Gotta find a way to stop the hurting

Close the door, shut out the light

We’ve got some thinking to do tonight
