HOLE HEARTED - Extreme

(From "Pornograffiti", 1990)

Hole Hearted is not really that hard to play. The only tricky

part is the following that I've given below. The rest, I'm sure

you've figured or can figure out easily enough.

This is a positively funky sound. Play it on the twelve string

like Nuno and you get that full sound.

Priorities come to the mind

This inner piece I've yet to find

The words are something like this:

Life's ambitions occupy my time

Priorities come to the mind

Happiness one step behind

This inner peace I've yet to find

Rivers flow into the sea

But even the sea's not so full of me

If I'm not blind why can't I see

That 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 Hole hearted

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....

There's a hole in my heart that can only be filled by you

Should have known from the start I'd fall short with the things I do

Hole hearted

HOLE HEARTED - Extreme

(From "Pornograffiti", 1990)

Written by Nuno Bettencourt and Gary Cherone. Performed by Extreme.

Tab by Edwin (eliu@mechanical.watstar.uwaterloo.ca)

and Anand "Indy" Kumar (st001904@hrz1.hrz.th-darmstadt.de)

Here's the complete song (without the overdubs).

The hard part was done by Edwin (eliu@mechanical.watstar.uwaterloo.ca),

to whom I send my special thanks. Wouldn't have tried this one without his

encouraging words: "Hole Hearted is not really that hard to play."

Didn't include the lyrics with all this copyright stuff going on.

-Edwin

Personally, I didn't find the rest that easy to figure, so I'll post it.

If you're having a hard time too, I hope it serves you.

Chorus 2. part

That's all. Not 100% sure of the voicings, but Nuno plays 12 string and I can

only afford 6, so everything he plays sounds so rich to me, that I tried to play

the maximum amount of strings possible. (How do you call chords like "E7(+sus4)"

properly ???)

Says Edwin: "Knock yourselves out"
