  1. The Hard Way

Lyrics

You are so, so beautiful my love
and it hurts so much to see you cry
Can’t we just put it past us once
I’m sorry I said a white lie
What were you doing walking out that late
don’t you know this is a dangerous town
I know its hard to get out of this state
but don’t go seeking thrills just to get you around
Oh my lady love, I swear
not you or the boy with the purple hair
This life ain’t all fortune and fame
you’ll forever learn that the hard way
Catch you sing a couple tunes downtown
then we’ll walk to the neighbourhood bar
Watch you take a couple of shots and then
take 15 minutes to let down your hair
Maybe it’s not my fault this time
maybe its just a mistake
getting caught in the wrong part of town
brought home to your mama for heaven’s sake
Oh my lady love, I swear
not you or the boy with the purple hair
This life ain’t all fortune and fame
you’ll forever learn that the hard way
Instant gratification
Keep on digging for gold
like the poor poor kids doing heroin
and rich girls like you doing coke
Oh my lady love, I swear
not you or the boy with the purple hair
This life ain’t all fortune and fame
you’ll forever learn that the hard way
One day my exploration will kill me
My love reimburse me
My safety fulfil me
and my lies curse me
