In the ashes of our greatest year
I forced the point and gave them grief
As if I find relief to see the worst in everyone
Still it's hard to be cruel to you
I wish I could- no that's not it
See what I mean to say is this
In this mad world it's hard to see the imperfection in your smile
And it's hard to be true to you
Even though I run away from you, I'm sorry
I wish I had chosen to be true
I'm sorry, I miss your disposition and your strength
I'll miss your disposition and your
Strength to see the best in everyone
Still it's hard to cruel to you

    General CommentTo me this song is about having to tell someone that you don't love her/him anymore ("Still it's hard to be cruel to you") and that you have to end the relationship although this person still loves you. It's almost impossiblwe to find the right words in such a situation ("See what I mean to say is this...").

    You still feel a lot for this person and you know you will miss her/him ("I'll miss your disposition and your Strength to see the best in everyone"). You feel ashamed having to hurt a once loved person ("Even though I run away from you, I'm sorry") still you know that for some reason it HAS to end like this ("I wish I could- no that's not it").

    What a beautiful, sad song.
