about

I wrote this song to my dear friend Tim Fleming who passed away due to heart complications. I am humbled and grateful to be supported on this song by many of the fine artists that Tim played with in L.A.

lyrics

I wish you’d broken all the rules
I wish you’d opened up that door
I wish you’d gotten in your car
And put the pedal to the floor

But rules are rules
And you obeyed
Just like me you were afraid
I wish you’d gone that day
And maybe then you could’ve have stayed

There will be a hole in my heart forever
That will be the shape of you
And darling when your heart was breaking
You were breaking my heart too
You were breaking my heart too

You always cried when songs were sad
You made me smile when I was blue
I think you would have cried right now
But now the tears are all for you

Now someone else will play this song
And someone else will cry
You’re not here to play along
You didn’t even say goodbye

There will be a hole in my heart forever
That will be the shape of you
And darling when your heart was breaking
You were breaking my heart too
Now we’re broken me and you

I wish you’d broken all the rules
I wish you’d opened up that door
But something else was broke instead
Now I can’t see you anymore

I wish tomorrow I’ll wake up
From this nightmare we are in
And then I will call you up
And ask you how you’ve been

There will be a hole in my heart forever
That will be the shape of you
And darling when your heart was breaking
You were breaking my heart too
There will be a hole in my heart forever
That will be the shape of you
I hope that they have steelguitars in heaven
I know you’d play them if they do
I know you’d play them if they do


But don’t you think that you can go
I’ll always have a piece of you
A hole in my heart forever
That will be the shape of you

about

Sofia Talvik Gothenburg, Sweden

Unmistakably Nordic in flavor, Sofia Talvik somehow still conforms to American interpretations of her own original music, a North Sea siren blending sparkle and melancholy, creating a special niche of folk music that has been described as neo-folk. She is a veteran performer with 8 original full length albums as well as numerous EPs, singles and tours behind her. ... more
