Hard to be the Way – Matthews, While & Watson
From the album ‘Piecework’ While and Matthews


I can see you out there, pacing the hall
Making something bigger, out of something small
You don’t want it, without a price to pay
You just want hard, to be the way

This should have blown over, you declared a war
You came in through the rubble darling
You could have used the door
You come out fighting, with your eyes ablaze
You just want hard to be the way

Chorus
(Hard to be the way)
You could have made it easy but you’d rather have it
(Hard to be the way)
A torture and a torment simply out of habit
(Hard to be the way)
You just want hard to be the way

Is it easy for you, do you even know it
You can’t help yourself, can’t help but show it
It’s the drama of it, it’s the endless fight
You’re attracted to it and it draws you in
Like a moth to the light, hard to be the way

Chorus
Hard to be the way, hard to be the way
Hard to be the way, You just want hard to be the way

(Hard to be the way)
You could have made it easy but you’d rather have it
(Hard to be the way)
A torture and a torment simply out of habit
You just want hard to be the way
Roll up roll up see the masochist at play, hey
You just want hard to be the way
You just want hard to be the way
