Lyrics

The Hard Way
Music and Lyrics by Rob Oswin

Well she's thirty-seven years today.
And all she ever seemed to say...
She said "I could have been someone,"
"You know but I was staring into the sun."

And she said, you could find the hard way of doing anything
You could try to make it on your own
And she said, you could find the hard way of doing anything
But you may never make it all alone.

So she ordered up another round,
And she said, "I don't mean to bring you down."
"But on the road that we must travel, take care."
"Before the yellow brick turns to gravel, You've gotta hurry up and take your share!"

And she said, you could find the hard way of doing anything
You could try to make it on your own
And she said, you could find the hard way of doing anything
But you may never make it all alone.

Whatever you do with your life, leave a trail!
Sometimes, some things in life well you just can't help!
But i see big things in your future,
Once you shine your light down the line to suits ya'...
Or you can find the hard way!

So she lit another cigarette,
And through her smoke came a passion I'll never forget.
She said, "Desire... is an Angel,"
"And Pride is such a lonely mistake."
"In Ambition... lies a danger,"
"When loneliness is the price you pay!"

And she said, you could find the hard way of doing anything
You could try to make it on your own
And she said, you could find the hard way of doing anything
But you may never make it all alone.
You could find the hard way on your own
