Hard Way to Make an Easy Living

it's a hard way to make an easy living
it's a hard way to make an easy living

i started out running alone
i went out in the great unknown
now i'm coming in, coming in hot
i don't even know what i got
count my stars the world is wide
and though we'll never make it out in time
i want to live before i die
so even if it takes all night
i'm just trying to get what's mine

and it's a hard way to make an easy living
it's a hard way to make an easy living

sunlight is warm to the touch
and i don't think that you ask too much
out the door don't know what's in store
i only know i always wanted more
quick as lightning a lifetime goes past
starts with a bang and it's gone in a flash
can't see ahead and you can't turn back
it never seems to go so fast
as when you're trying to have a good thing last

and it's a hard way to make an easy living
it's a hard way to make an easy living

i wear my heart on my sleeve
if it's beating i still believe
now i'm going back, back out again
i couldn't tell you where i've been
i started out in the early dawn
and i ended up with a song
now i'm looking for something strong
that's gonna keep me hanging on
you'll never know what you've found 'till it's gone

and it's a hard way to make an easy living
it's a hard way to make an easy living
it's a hard way to make an easy living
it's a hard way to make an easy living
