Yeah, yeah, yeah
There's a hole in my life
There's a hole in my life

Shadow in my heart
Is tearing me apart
Or maybe it's just something in my stars

There's a hole in my life
There's a hole in my life
Be a happy man
I try the best I can
Or maybe I'm just looking for too much

Yeah, yeah, yeah
There's something missing from my life
Cuts me open like a knife
It leaves me vulnerable
I have this disease
I shake like an incurable
God help me, please
Oh, there's a hole in my life
There's a hole in my life

- Hole in my life, The Police
