hard way lyrics – scott stapp

so let me tell a story, friend
of diamond hands and one night stands
i guess the good life paid you once or twice

just when i thought i had it all
caught a sucker punch and lost it all
just never thought it would have come from you

so here i stand alone again
with one eye open, i’m a broken man
life flashed before my eyes, but i’m alive

i found out the hard way
and your day’s coming soon
i found out the hard way
i pray you’ll make it through

so what am i supposed to do
when all i’ve got is god and you
i guess i’ll trust the one i can’t see

as i sit here on this park bench
knowing what you are thinking
i wonder how you close your eyes to sleep

so here i stand alone again
talking to my faceless friend
at least when we’ve got words
we’re eye to eye

i found out the hard way
and your day’s coming soon
i found out the hard way
i pray you’ll make it through

i found out the hard way
and your day’s coming soon
i found out the hard way
i pray you’ll make it through

i’m just a simple man (make it through)
i’m just a simple man (make it through)
i’m just a simple man (make it through)
i’m just a simple man (make it through)
i’m just a simple man (make it through)

i found out the hard way
and your day’s coming soon
i found out the hard way
i pray you’ll make it through

i found out the hard way
and your day’s coming soon
i found out the hard way
i pray you’ll make it through
