Whole Hearted And Filled



Click to listen while reading the lyrics:

Life's ambitions occupy my time
Priorities confuse the mind
Happiness one step behind
This 'inner peace' I've yet to find

Rivers flow into the sea
Yet even the sea is not so full of me
If I'm not blind why can't I see?
That a circle can't fit
Where a square should be

There's a hole in my heart
That can only be filled by You
And this hole in my heart
Can't be filled with the things I do

Hole hearted x2

This heart of stone is where I hide
These feet of clay kept warm inside
Day by day less satisfied
Not fade away before I die

Rivers flow into the sea
Yet even the sea is not so full of me
If I'm not blind why can't I see?
That a circle can't fit
Where a square should be

There's a hole in my heart
That can only be filled by You
And this hole in my heart
Can't be filled with the things I do
There's a hole in my heart
That can only be filled by You
Should have known from the start
I fall short with the things I do

Hole hearted x6

- Nuno Bettencourt, Gary F. Cherone (Extreme)

He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.

- Ecclesiastes 3: 11

I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.

- Ezekiel 36: 26

I pray that out of His glorious riches He may strengthen you with power through His Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith.

- Ephesians 3: 16-17a
