  • Old men crying, young men dying
    World still turns as Father Time looks on
    On and on
    Children playing, dreamers praying
    Laughter turns to tear as love has gone
    Has it gone?

    Oh, it's a hard road
    Oh, it's a hard road

    Whirlwind churning, lovers learning
    On this path of life we can't back down
    Is it wrong?
    Widows weeping, babies sleeping
    Life becomes the singer and the song
    Sing along

    Oh, it's a hard road
    Carry your own load

    Why make the hard road?
    Why can't we be friends?
    No need to hurry
    We'll meet in the end

    Why make the hard road?
    Why can't we be friends?
    No need to worry
    Let's sing it again

    Brother's sharing, mother's caring
    Nightime falling victim to the dawn
    Shadows small
    Days are crawling, time is calling
    To the Earth that not that life has gone
    Love line drawn

    Oh, it's a hard road
    Carry your own load
    Oh, it's a hard road
    Oh, it's a hard road

    We're living in sorrow, we're living the best
    And look to the future, 'cause life goes together now
    We're living in sorrow, we're living the best
    And look to the future, 'cause life goes together now
    We're living in sorrow, we're living the best
    And look to the future, 'cause life goes together now Writer/s: ANTHONY IOMMI, JOHN OSBOURNE, TERENCE BUTLER, WILLIAM WARD
