Thereís a hole that found me long ago††††Why I didnít see I was in it I donít know

D††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† †††††C††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† C

It has since defined my life, lost me health, career, a wifeDuring the many years I just let it grow

 

G†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† C††† D†††††††† ††††††††G C D G††††††††††††††††††††††††††† C†† †††††††††††††††††††††††††††††G C G

Now Iíve climbed up to the edge still staring down†† ††Pity me but the world keeps spinning around

D†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† C†††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††††††††D††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† C

So I sniffle to my feet, it can be tamed but it canít be beat†† I use the excavated dirt as a mound

 

††††††††††††††††††††††† †††††††D††††††††††††††††††† †††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††C

Chorus: If I could see back then what age, humility, patience has subsequently shown

††††††††††††††††††††† D7†††††††††††††† G†††††† Em†††††††††††††††††††††††††††† C

I could have set aside my pride, felt what was deep inside

†††††††† D†††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††Em††††††† †††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††C

Who knows how I would have turned, how many bridges I would not have burned

††††††††††††††††††††† D††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† C†††††††††††† Am†††††††††††††††† D††††††††††††††† G C D G

Whether my kids would have gotten their chance to shine all their own

 

G††††††††††††††††††††††††††† †††††††††††††C†††††† D†††† ††††G C D G†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††C††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G††††† C G

There were many things I tried to set me free†† †††Substances, God and flight to name Ďbout 63

D†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††††C††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††††††††††††††††D†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† †††††††††††††C

In the end itís down to one, if I find it itís still undone†† Iíll move on because I know itís part of me

 

G†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† C†††††††††††† ††††††D†††††††††††††††† G C D †††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††

Itís kind of scary to think of what might have been

††††††††††† G†††††††††††††††††††† C†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† †††††††G†† C G

Had I busted free my life path would have a different end

D††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††C†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† †††††††††††††††††††††

Maybe scuffling as a NY musician, landing a more powerful corporate position

††††† D†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† †††††††††††††††††††††††††††C

Or suburban life just drinking with some friends

It has since directed my life, to a fruitful career, a loving wife

D†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† C

During the many years I just let it grow

D†††††††††††††††††††††† †††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††C

During the many years I was not in control.

D††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††††††††††C

During the many years it consumed my soul.
