"It's Hard to Say" as written by James Newton Howard, David Pack and David Wolinski....
The singer finished singing and she's walking out
The singer sheds a tear
Fear of falling out

And It's hard to say how I feel today
For years gone by
And I cried

It's hard to say that I was wrong
It's hard to say that I miss you
Since you've been gone it's not the same

My worries weigh the world
How I used to be and everything
(I'm so cold)
Seems a plague in me

And its hard to say how I feel today
For years gone by
And I cried

It's hard to say that I was wrong
It's hard to say I miss you
Since you've been gone its not the same
Its hard to say I held my tongue
It's hard to say if only
Since you've been gone it's not the same

Worse than a lie you told a thousand times before
Worse than a fear it's the knife
And its hard to say how I feel today for years gone by and I cried
Its hard to say that I was wrong
It's hard to say I miss you
Since you've been gone it's not the same
It's hard to say I held my tongue
It's hard to say if only
Since you've been gone its not the same.

    General CommentThis song is definately about Kate.
    From what I've heard Kate is a girl who he dated for around five years and lost his virginity to. I heard that one day he had decided to call her out of the blue only to find out through her younger sister when he called, that she had overdosed and died. I think this song is definately about her and I think a lot of the other songs are too. I am part of the used nation and someone in there said that at one of the shows he said they had never played the song 'hard to say' before but they were going to and to excuse bert if he got emotional, which he did while finishing the song =(

    General CommentSomething about the Used that I really like. They keep you going and they are a very intelligent band. Now I'm sure there'll be one or a few people that disagree, but I view them as this.

    The singer is really convincing at the duality he goes through, and on one hand he is full of emotion and sensitivity, like in this song, but on the other hand he is trashing his world in a swirl of drugs and puking. I really like this guy LOL.

    Anyway, I'm wondering if this song is about Kelly Osbourne. This seems like a recent relationship, at least during his singing career. Pretty self explanatory and unlike some of his other songs, he really cares about this one.

    General CommentHis vocal range really impressed me throughout this album, especially on this song, too. I love this song so much, it's a really beautiful song and composed very well. I get chills the last time he says, "our years gone by."
