Hard Love

HARD LOVE                                                          

Intro:                                                                   

Sometimes love seems so easy

Then that passion knocks me flat down

And my heart sings the blues, for each love that I loose

Then I get up n’start lookin’ around

 

Cho: Hard love is not what I look for

Specially when it looks hard from the start

But I learned how to live, when I learned how t’give

Hard love helped me find my heart

Hard love helped me find my heart.

 

Hit songs are all easy love songs

Lovers fight, they make up, they rejoice

But I never knew what hard love was

Til I had to make that hard choice

When my drunken Dad bust in through my door,

When my buddy the soldier just stared at the floor,

When my cousin got caught, and I bailed her out

That’s what hard love’s about                                   

 

Cho: Hard love is not what I look for

Cause I know it can tear me apart

But I learned how to live, when I learned how t’give

Hard love helped me find my heart

Hard love helped me find my heart.

Instrumental chorus

 

Bridge:  What ever happened to “turn the other cheek”?

Was that only popular last week?

 

Hard love’s all around, but where’s the awards?

For those young single Moms lugging babies through stores

For that Dad who keeps working a job that’s dead end

T’keep family together or t’pay back a friend?

Where’s that statue for Grandma, whose daughter’s in jail,

As she helps her blind granddaughter learn t’read Braille

She gave up her own dreams to “hard love” that girl,

And that hard love opened their worlds!

 

Cho: Hard love is not what we look for

Specially when it looks hard from the start

But we learn how to live, when we learn how to give

Hard love helps us find our heart

Hard love helps us find our heart.

Hard love helped me find my heart!
