"The Hard Way" as written by Donna Douglas and Keith Brown....
I hear every word they say
They tell me to stay away
They say I'm better off without you, baby
You've caused me nothing but pain

Heartache's your middle name
But seems I never see it coming
I'll just admit it baby
You really drive me crazy

Let go of my heart
'Cause every time you're near me
I can't think clearly
Defenses fall apart

I keep livin' and lovin' and learnin' the hard way
You're the hardest lesson, baby, of my life
I keep livin' and lovin' and learnin' the hard way
Someday baby, I will get it right

I never will understand
Why I let you think you can
Treat me any way you please, baby
I guess I hope someday

You'll settle down and say
Give me all the love I need, baby
Time and time I've found
You always let me down

Always ends the same way
You'd think that I could see the way you're treatin' me
Won't ever change

I keep livin' and lovin' and learnin' the hard way
You're the hardest lesson, baby, of my life
I keep livin' and lovin' and learnin' the hard way
Someday baby, I will get it right

If I could just hold on, if I could just be strong
My heart would see it's wrong, lovin' you, lovin' you

I keep livin' and lovin' and learnin' the hard way
You're the hardest lesson, baby, of my life
I keep livin' and lovin' and learnin' the hard way
Someday baby, I will get it right

Livin' and lovin' the hard way
You're the hardest lesson, oh baby, of my life
Livin' and lovin' the hard way
Someday, I will get it right
