"Hard Road" as written by and Sam Lewis Roberts....
Feel it grow
In your mind
In your mind
Life is how you live it

Through time
Through time
And there's no desert sun
That is hot enough to feed your fire

We shipwreck like fools
Only to become the ocean's choir
And the sun dies until it's reborn
But there's no road that ain't a hard road to travel on

Got lost on the way but you found the road again
Stay true to your friends ‘cause they'll save you in the end
There must be something in the air, in the air
Some kind of answer to my prayers, to my prayers

Some kind of answer to my prayers
I've been dying since the day I was born
‘Cause there's no road that ain't a hard road to travel on
I have a vision in my mind

Of a life that I've left behind
And can't you see that lost souls can't swim
You know you'll sink but you still jump in
And it's alright to get caught

Stealing back what you've lost
Yeah don't you know that lost souls can't swim
You beat them back or they drag you in
And I can't say that I am sorry for all my medicines

You try to find a love that'll see you through your darkest days
And her soft brown hair is as long as the Canadian highway
When the sun dies until it's reborn
But there's no road that ain't a hard road to travel on

Been dying since the day I was born
‘Cause there's no road that ain't a hard road to travel on

    General Comment"there's no road, that aint a hard road to travel on.." The meaning of this song holds true to almost everyone, and I think that's why I love this song so much. No matter how your life is, there will always be bad times, and the point is to get through it as good as you can.

    General CommentReviews of Sam's newest album (Love at the End of the World) accuse him of being too bleak. While I don't wholly disagree with this assessment, it is totally without merit for them to say that he has grown cynical. I saw him perform a couple of weeks ago, and I would say that his strongest connection with the crowd came when he performed Hard Road. He made all of us believe these words, and there was no doubting that he still believed them too.

    General Comment"And I can't say that I'm sorry for all my medicines" I think it's "for all my many sins"

    By the way that song rocks.
