Bill Mallonee - Hollow Out My Heart lyrics

Compass shot to hell maps they're all frayed
We were starving from the crumbs we picked up along the way
Hands were never strong enough to carry all your fears
So I hollowed out my heart my love
Make a place make a space for your tears
And it was never better when lost in the sound
Yeah just outside the city walls but still sufficiently underground
My feet were never quick enough for the changing of those gears
No matter what I give no matter what you get
All these treasures from the heart well now aren't they all suspect
I handed you the wheel as I was too numb to steer
Once I gave you all my heart all of that has passed
Once I showed you all my cards well that will be the last
Last time I ventured forth out into the clear
