"Another Little Hole" as written by and Matthew Nicholas Hales....
No need to tell her,
She knows that there's
Another little hole
In her heart.

Each day, each dollar,
She knows it tears
Another little hole
In her heart.

'cause she feels it happen,
No doubt that there's
Another little hole
In her heart.
Another little hole
In her heart.

Day is breaking,
And time is taking
The love we're making
Away.

This life can only
Leave us lonely,
There's no tomorrow,
Just another little hole
In her heart.
Yeah.

No need to tell me,
I know that there's
Another little tear
In my eye.

I'm quite aware,
I see that there's
Another little tear
In my eye.

Do you ask yourself why?
Should we ask ourselves why?
Is there any point in wondering why?
Any point in wondering why?

Day is breaking,
And time is taking
The love we're making
Away.

This life can only
Leave us lonely,
There's no tomorrow
Just another little tear
In my eye.
Another little tear
In my eye.
Another little tear
In my eye.
Yeah.

I don't know.
I don't know.
I don't know.
I don't, I don't know.

I don't know.
I don't know.
I don't know.
I don't, I don't know.

I don't know.
I don't know.
I don't know.
I don't know.
I don't know.
I don't know.
I don't know.
I don't, I don't know.

The day is breaking,
And time is taking
The love we're making
Away.

The gods have spoken,
The spell is broken,
And love will tear us,
Love will tear us
Apart.

This life can only
Leave us lonely,
There's no tomorrow,
Just another little hole
In my heart.
Another little hole
In my heart.
Another little hole
In my heart.

I don't know. I don't know.
I don't know. I don't, I don't know.

    General Commenti think it's about breaking up, and them both being upset.

    "day is breaking,
    and time is taking
    the love we're making
    away.

    this life can only
    leave us lonely,
    there's no tomorrow
    just another little tear
    in my eye.
    another little tear
    in my eye.
    another little tear
    in my eye.
    yeah."

    they are growing apart, they lost another person in their life, hence adding another little hole to their hearts.

    "the gods have spoken
    the spell is broken
    and love will tear us,
    love will tear us
    apart."

    i don't get that^. I guess, their love spell is broken, their love tore them apart. I dont know.

    General Commenti agree with fanducky, this song does seem to be about coming to the realization that everything ends. A beautiful song, but one of the most depressing i've ever heard. Even if a couple never split up or end their relationship, one will end up dying in the other's arms eventually. The line, "This life can only, leave us lonely" sums it up.

    General Commentim experiencing this. she knows things are falling apart and he can see that she knows. he doesnt exactly know what to say or do. their love is dying but they still love eachother. her heart is breaking: she is breaking. he sees her upset and tears follow. i hope noone ever experiences this although love often leads to this :(

    General CommentI can understand why you might interperet this song that way, but I personally think it is about two people who are making love, but must part. I think that the "day breaking" is metaphoric for the end of thier union. He knows that this will leave him with "another little hole in my heart". Just my opinion.

    General CommentWow...this song is SooOoo depressing. But I really love it.
    "this life can only leave us lonely."
    I think that this song is basically about a love that once was strong, perhaps, but is dying for some reason...or at least for one person who is part of it. It's like they're experiencing the motions, but they don't truly feel it for each other anymore. Sad.

    General CommentI feel it has something to do with the girl feeling like she's been used by guys, and the lyrics "each day, each dollar," kind of highlight that, making a refererence to how prostitues (who make money off of sex) are used. Not saying the girl of the song is one, i tihnk he's lyrically trying to convey the way the girls been treated (like a prostitue being used) by men.
