Song Lyric Sunday #2 for 8/7/16

https://helenespinosa.wordpress.com/2016/08/06/song-lyric-sunday-theme-for-8616/

Here are the “rules”:

  • Post the lyrics to a favorite song or a new song you want to share
  • Please try to include the songwriter(s) – it’s a good idea to give credit where credit is due and it’s honestly just a simple Google search
  • Make sure you also credit the singer/band and provide a link to where you found the lyrics
  • Link to the YouTube video, or pull it into your post so others can listen to the song
  • Ping back to this post or my own Song Lyric Sunday post
  • Read at least one other person’s blog so we can all share new and fantastic music and create amazing new blogging friends in the process

This week we were asked to share a song about missing someone we love. I picked

A Hole in the World Tonight by the Eagles

They wrote this right after 9/11. I was so moved by the song and the lyrics and now I can’t hear it without missing Glenn Frey terribly….and everyone else, famous, or close to me, whose departure has left a hole in the world!

I’m so lucky that my son and husband took me to the History of the Eagles Tour a couple of years ago. What a treat! They were amazing, as they had been so many times, and as close to perfect as a live show can bring!

 

Lyrics (Google Play)

There’s a hole in the world tonight.
There’s a cloud of fear and sorrow.
There’s a hole in the world tonight.
Don’t let there be a hole in the world tomorrow.

They say that anger is just love disappointed.
They say that love is just a state of mind.
But all this fighting over who is anointed,
Oh, how can people be so blind?

There’s a hole in the world tonight.
There’s a cloud of fear and sorrow.
There’s a hole in the world tonight.
Don’t let there be a hole in the world tomorrow.

Oh, they tell me there’s a place over yonder
Cool water running through the burning sand.
Until we learn to love one another,
We will never reach the Promised Land.

There’s a hole in the world tonight.
There’s a cloud of fear and sorrow.
There’s a hole in the world tonight.
Don’t let there be a hole in the world tomorrow.

They say that anger is just love disappointed.
(There’s a cloud of fear and sorrow.)
They say that love is just a state of mind.
(There’s a hole in the world tonight.)
But all this fighting over who will be anointed,
(Don’t let there be a hole in the world tomorrow.)
Oh, how can people be so blind?

There’s a hole in the world tonight.
(Hole in the world)
There’s a cloud of fear and sorrow.
(Fear and sorrow)
There’s a hole in the world tonight.
(Oh)
Don’t let there be a hole in the world tomorrow (repeat three times)

Thought a blog might help me develop better writing habits so I could finally finish my book, 16 years in the writing, but so far it's mostly photos and FUN!

  1. I love the Eagles! I hadn’t heard this song before, but it is simply beautiful! It does feel like there’s a hole in the world when you lose someone you love. Thanks so much for sharing this! ❤
