or
John Mellencamp

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?
