Hard for the Heart

  • Lyrics
  • This is one of several heartbreaking ballads on Duffy's second album, Endlessly. The singer told US Magazine how the record's melancholy subject matter was inspired by times when she has been upset in her own life. Said Duffy: "I get let down, but I've never been heartbroken - I've been hurt, but not broken. I go through all these different emotions and I reflect. When I'm a part of something that doesn't make me feel good, it compels me to put pen to paper and write songs."
