about

Jimmy Reed lick leading the Ray Charles progression of a blue midnight lament. The theme is about turning lemons (profound sadness at the bitterness of loss) into lemonade (a groovy soul-blues where I can sing away my woe, you feel me?).

lyrics

A HOLE WHERE MY HEART SHOULD BE

I’ll tell you a story so you can see
What happens to a man like me
When there’s a hole where my heart used to be,
Oh yeah

I’m feelin’ so weary, but I can’t sleep
Alone in bed I hang my head and weep
Into this hole where my heart used to be
Mercy me

After everything is said and done, I do apologize
If I’m not the man you thought I was, God knows I tried
To hold you in my loving arms and keep you satisfied
But I could not give you everything you want, and I saw the pain in your eyes

And that is what hurts me, more than you’ll see
Now here I am just beggin’ on my knees
Down in this hole where my heart used to be
Mercy me

Now that is my story, you heard it from me
Now pray that one day I may find my peace
Lord, with this hole where my heart
With this hole where my heart
With this hole, yeah yeah yeah, where my heart used to be
Mercy me
