"The Hardest Thing In The World" as written by and John Squire Ian Brown....
The hardest thing in the world

Holland it don't please
I never wanted to leave
Searching for a perfect day
It never happens that way
Ahey hey hey

I'm sick and tired
It's so obscene
Will heaven help me be clean?
Searching for a perfect day
It never happens that way
Ahey hey hey

Cut away, I know no one wants you around

You never heard a word I said
It's seems simple to me
That if you knew you wouldn't say
It never happens that way
Ahey hey hey

And the impression I get
As the story unfurls
Is that you're the hardest thing in the world

Cut away, I know no one wants you around

What you feel might not be
It seems softer to me
I cannot climb to touch your spire
I'm getting higher and higher

Cut away, I know no one wants you around
The hardest thing in the world

    General CommentI love this song. One of my favourites on Turns Into Stone... probably only behind Mersey Paradise and Elephant Stone.

    Sums up life sometimes... "searching for a perfect day, it never happens that way".

    Great song, great band.

    General CommentIt sounds crazy, but I'm almost certain that Ian Brown sings "hollandaise, it don't please" at the start of the song. No sites seem to have that but listening through headphones, I'm sure that's what he's saying...

    Great song whatever the lyrics are! :D

    General CommentMight be about a girl who isn't interested despite the your best attempts.

    General CommentI always thought this was a song about being depressed/ having a depressed friend.

    The 'hardest thing in the world' is picking yourself up and getting on with life.

    I'm pretty sure the line is 'Come awake, I know your world wants you around'.

    General CommentThe lyrics are : holland fades,it dont please,i never wanted to leave,searching for a perfect day,it never happens that way,a hey hey hey. Im sick inside and so obscene,would heaven help me to be clean? Searching for a perfect day,it never happens that way,a hey hey hey.
    Cut away,i know your world wants you around.
    You never heard a word i said,its very simple to me,but it i knew you wouldny say,it neer hapoens that way,a hey hey hey.
    And the impression i get,as the story unfurls,that your the hardest thing in the world.
    Cut away,i know your world wants you around.
    What you feel it might not be,it seems so far to me. I cannot climb to touch your spire,im getting higher and higher,
    Cut away,i know your world wants you around,the hardest thing in the world
