The Hard Way Down

THE HARD WAY DOWN

I’m traipsing through the moonscape
As if I cannot see
I’m sleeping through the shadow play
Pretending to be free
The road I walk is a bumpy one
Though I barely make a sound
As I careen off cliffs above
Taking the hard way down

I’m drifting on the summer wind
Trying not to leave my mark
Sometimes when two souls collide
There’s not even one spark
Not so with you, my love
You’ve charred me to the ground
As I careen off cliffs above
Taking the hard way down

The hard way down
The hard way down
It’s the only way to fly
The hard way down
The hard way down
You really ought to give it a try

And as the days grow shorter
I fear to say goodbye
I’m fragile as a bird’s wing
Without the will to fly
Your arms like broken branches
Reach up to make my crown
As I careen off cliffs above
Taking the hard way down

The hard way down
The hard way down
It’s the only way to fly
The hard way down
The hard way down
You really ought to give it a try
