"Hard Way" as written by and Michelle Shocked....
You came over with flowers
What an odd way to start a war
But one is fought with words unspoken
The moment you walk through that door.
I wear one face for you
I wear one for me
I don't want to live like this
But baby just let me be.

Chorus:
We keep doing this the hard way
Doing this the hard way
Doing this the hard way
But we do it so well.

When I want you to leave,
you turn back around.
I'm tired, worn and talked to the ground.
But when I need you most,
you're nowhere to be found
Except this sad, sad state
that's keeping us down.

Alternate Chorus:
I sure am better, but I'm not well
'Cause being with you is like welding metal and hammering nails.
Higher we'll build these fences,
deeper we'll build these wells.
Before we can't get out, only time will tell.

Bridge:
All you give is coolness,
while I favor fire
The way you keep stringing me along,
I'm feeling so tired
I favor fire when all you give is coolness
The way we keep carrying on,
I'm feeling so foolish
But I like a little clutter,
things messed a bit
I'm not thrilled with this life,
but at least it feels lived in
I could put life into place,
but it just takes too much time
With all that we do,
I'm just not satisfied.
Chorus (repeated twice)
