"The Hard Way" as written by and Michelle Shocked....
Here I sit once again
I?m missing you like crazy baby
I?ve screwed up again and again
Keep making the same mistakes
Don?t wanna be an old man
With nothing figured out yet baby
I gotta start some time soon
I wish I never hurt you
I wish I never hurt you

I?m doing the best I can
Living like any man
My father used to say to me ? he said
?While you?re young,
You gotta learn the hard way, son??

I can?t call you up to talk
I know you?re moving on now baby
You?ve learnt to steer real clear
Of guys that resemble me now
But don?t I know I?m on my own
It?s all about decisions baby
This was the ultimate test
Once again I failed myself
And I failed you too
And it hurts like hell

I?m doing the best I can
Living like any man
My father used to say it to me ? he said
?While you?re young,
You gotta learn the hard way, son??

(it?s the only way you?re gonna learn)
