"Things Are Hard (Seen How Things Are Hard)" as written by and Steven P. Smith....
I took you to the train
Stupid shit you just play
I took the pictures in my head
You look like a skeleton a little dressy thing

You just didn't care
You're all getting drunk instead
Seen how things are hard
Seen how things are hard

I love you though
Seen how things are hard
Seen how things are hard
Well don't you know

The state of what you've got
It's a dizzy hot and just damn forgot
Stay well away from trouble that you caused
Using all your strength to keep the world at an arm's length

And I get upset that something was lost
Seen how things are hard
Seen how things are hard
I love you though

Seen how things are hard
Seen how things are hard
Well don't you know
I'm a glad reflection of you

I can't make corrections for you
You have to help to patch things up
Seen how things are hard
Seen how things are hard

I love you though
Seen how things are hard
Seen how things are hard
Well don't you know seen how things are hard

Seen how things are hard
I love you though
Seen how things are hard
Seen how things are hard

Well don't you know
No

    General Commentwell, one might guess Elliott is refering to a substance-abusing girlfriend and how her habits affect him, while expressing sympathy and unconditional love for the poor wretch.

    "I can’t make corrections for you
    You have to help to patch things up
    Seen how things are hard
    Seen how things are hard
    I love you though"

    i researched the internet for any references to past girlfriends who were substance abusers and couldfn't find any, so i don't know

    General CommentI must be listening to a different version...

    I took you to the train
    Stupid shit you displayed
    I took pictures in my head.
    You and a blank stare (not sure about this line, but I didn't hear "skeleton" at all)
    Only had a little trace of you there (she was drunk or high or something)
    You just didn't care.

    General CommentCorrection, imo:

    You were scared of what you thought, were so dizzy hot you break down and forgot
    You stayed well away from trouble that you caused
    Using all your strength to keep the world at arm's length
    And now you get upset that something was lost..."
