You call a truce and then you start a fight,
you change your signals like a traffic light
cause you're a hard, a hard one to know.

Around your heart you've tied a fishing line,
You cast it out there just to see who'll bite
cause you're a hard, a hard one to know.

I toss and turn but I just can't get to sleep
when I start thinkin' 'bout what you do to me.
You're like a flower garden buried in snow,
you're a hard one to know.

You give your love out like an auctioneer.
Your moves are jumpy and your words aren't clear
cause you're a hard, a hard one to know.

First you smother then you disengage
Your tears of joy dissolve to tears of rage
cause you're a hard, a hard one to know.

I toss and turn but I just can't get to sleep
when I start thinkin' 'bout what you do to me.
You drag your feet as you swing to and fro,
you're a hard one to know.

I toss and turn but I just can't get to sleep
when I start thinking 'bout what you do to me.
You're like a flower garden buried in snow,
you're a hard one to know.

And I try to love ya but you won't let me in.
You say it's ending before it can begin.
You tell to stay and then you tell me to go,
you're a hard one to know.

    Song MeaningPretty straight forward. About a neurotic woman, who loves him one minute
    and pushes him away the next.

    I think it's safe to say it's about his Old Girl, Zooey Deschanel.
