04. God-Shaped Hole (2010)

Beautiful History: A Hits Collection
by Plumb



 

Every point of view has another angle
And every angle has its merit
But all comes down to faith
That's the way I see it

You can say that love is not divine and
You can say that life is not eternal
'all we have is know'
But I don't believe it

There's a God-shaped hole in all of us
And the restless soul is searching
There's a God-shaped hole in all of us
And it's a void only he can fill

Does the world seem gray with empty longing
Wearing every shade of cynical
And do you ever feel that
There is something missing?

That's my point of view...



Behind the Song:
“Okay, so originally I didn’t want to record this song back in 1998, but in the last decade, it has come to mean something very different to me. The lyric was written based on a conversation C.S. Lewis had once about how in each of us there is a vacuum, if you will, that HAS to be filled. And we try to fill it with sex, drugs, money, food, alcohol, injury, busyness, laziness, people, work… anything that can be a quick selfish fix. But we’re always running empty sooner than later and wanting more. But the truth is… it can ONLY be satisfied by the love and hope and peace of the One who created us. God himself. Ending up in Bruce Almighty (2003) was sort of a funny irony in it all. And today, much like my pink wig from my debut photo shoot… I’m very glad I did it.” – Plumb
