lyrics

And I want Looking at the time
to rewind
Just to see your face smile again

I feel so tightfisted
So caught up and twisted
Like I’ve lost my only friend

Sometimes I say
I’ll be better today
But it always just seems to go wrong

Coming around
To the bright side of town
I find I’m singing that same old song

How can it be so hard to get by?
When it seemed like just yesterday everything was alright
How can it be so hard to get by? We can try…
We can find a way? Will we find a way this time?

Day after day
I hear people say
That times are getting them down

But what can you do
When the floor’s falling through
Are there ways to turn it around?

I’m not going to quit now
I’m not going to sit down
And watch you throw it away

Why are we running?
There’s got to be something
That we can do for a change

How can it be so hard to get by?
When it seemed like just yesterday everything was just right
How can it be so hard to get by? We can try…
Can we find a way? Will we find a way?

They say that there’s a purpose
But I need a reason
They say in every prison
That you find a little freedom
Will you lift me up?
I’m ready for a change

How can it be so hard to get by?
When it seemed like just yesterday everything was just right
How can it be so hard to get by? We can try…
We can find a way; We will find a way
