The Hard Way

So many times have I been down
Down to the bottom of a barrel or another
Scraping the bottom to discover
My world flipped upside down

And I’m starting over

Thoughts that kept me spinning round
Round I searched for a friend to give cover
In vain I searched to discover
No shelter could be found

And I’m starting over

I’ve heard it said that when you fall
You need to make the climb again
Failure is failure
But only if you stay

So many times I’ve tried to call
To hear the line cut again
No one ever said that life was fair
But I’m learning that the hard way

So many things I’ve tried to change
Change what I could of what was around
All around but never inside me
Finding what matters and not who to blame

Sometimes the only way to move forward
Is to turn life around and begin again
To let go of the past and find a new way

But I’m learning that the hard way
