"Twice As Hard" as written by and Christopher Mark/robinson Robinson....
Clean as a whistle
Smellin' like a rose
She got no dirty little fingers
Bloodshot eyes are gone
Tell me I"m wrong

Twice as Hard
As it was the first time
I said goodbye

And no one ever want to' know
Love ain't funny
A crime in the wink of an eye

Your sister always singing
She play the step child
A broken little memory
Her heart was never kind
Tell me I'm blind

Yeah, bloodshot eyes are gone
Tell me I'm wrong

Twice as Hard
As it was the first time
I said goodbye

Twice as Hard
As it was the first time
I said goodbye

Twice as Hard
As it was the first time
I said goodbye

Twice as Hard
As it was the first time
I said goodbye

Twice as Hard
As it was the first time
I said goodbye

    General Commenti never thought the lyrics were like this because i couldnt understand them.
    uhh, id like to tell what its about but its kinda confusing.
    anyway, its obviously about having to leave someone for a second time, so my best guess is that he left her once, came back, and now has to leave her again.
    not really sure, just my guess from what i can see.

    General CommentThis is a great song. Twice as hard to belive that it's a skinny little pothead singing it.
    LOL :) My sister always said she could identify with the Robinson brothers aggression. Even though
    they never got as bad as the "Galaghers"(Oasis)-she&I did. LOL:)

    General CommentI think musikman is right about the drug thing, it's avery sad song but it has such an uplifting beat.

    General CommentMusikman04 is mostly correct (in 2005). This guy left his woman because of drugs (1st goodbye). Then he comes back for her funeral (due to the drugs), and THAT goodbye was "twice as hard". "Tell me I'm wrong" means he is in denial of her death or at least wishing she wasn't. "no more bloodshot eyes" -- she's dead.

    General CommentI'm gonna say this song isn't about death or anything drug-related..

    I am currently coming out of a relationship where my girl and I split up once already, and this is the 2nd time we're breaking up. I can tell you from experience that this time around is definitely "twice as hard". Actually, its harder, but "25,000 times as hard" isn't quite as singable =)

    Maybe Chris isn't doing the breaking up, maybe he's being broken up with:

    Clean as a whistle (a clean break)
    Smellin' like a rose (as in she "comes out smelling like a rose")
    She got no dirty little fingers (her hands are clean)
    Bloodshot eyes are gone (she's not crying this time)

    Just my humble opinion..

    General Commentkris and jeff is completely right. it also explains the line "smelling like a rose" because a comon way to traditionally purfume a corpse at a funeral is to lay roses in the casket. "noone ever wanna know|love aint funny" is kind of a revelation. its self explanatory; he knows now that sometimes love is a more serious, less lighthearted situation.

    General CommentActually, never mind

    Joe is correct, looking at the song line for line as opposed to a verse at a time. His theory also coincides with the line "her heart was never kind" suggesting she had a hand in the reason for leaving. this also goes along with love not being funny, for the same reasons
