There's a void in my heart I can't seem to fill. Been a parent, had three children, And a big house on the hill. Hundred dollar in my pocket, And it didn't buy a thing. Now there's a void in my heart And a hole in my dreams.
Well, I poured miles of concrete And strung wire for telephones, Dug ditches when I was a young boy; When I first left my parents' home. Sang my songs for millions of people; Sang good and bad news. Now there's a void in my heart And a fire at my fuse.
Well, I did everything just like they said So I could find happiness. Went to school and got a college degree, And at my job I did my best. As I sit here alone, tonight, I see a billion just like me, With a void in their hearts and running from eternity.
There's a void in my heart I can't seem to fill. I do charity work when I believe in the cause, But in my soul it bothers me still. Hey, Lord, well, you made me like I am; Can you heal this restlessness? Will there be a void in my heart When they carry me out to rest?
