These Hard Times

Album: Exile on Mainstream (2007)
  • Morning falls like rain into the city life
    There goes another night
    Losing my breath in waves
    Knowing that ever crash is bleeding the hourglass
    And taking the strife, from all our lives

    Everyone keeps talking
    They promise you everything
    But they don't mean anything

    We may loose our focus
    There's just too many words
    We're never meant to learn
    And we don't feel so alive

    Say goodbye, these days are gone
    And we can't keep holding on
    When all we need is some relief
    Through these hard times
    Through these hard times

    Move your hands in circles
    Keeping me hypnotized
    The power behind your eyes

    Move around your bedroom cursing the naked sky
    You should be here tonight
    But you stay alone and cry

    Say goodbye, these days are gone
    And we can't keep holding on
    When all we need is some relief
    Through these hard times
    (Whoa) There's something missing
    (Oh whoa) You'll never feel it but you
    (Oh whoa) You're gonna feel it when it's gone
    When it's gone

    Say goodbye, these days are gone
    And we can't keep holding on
    When all we need is some relief
    Through these hard times
    (Hey) these hard times
    (Oh no, no) hard times
    Hard times

    Say goodbye, these days are gone
    Say goodbye, these days are gone
    These days are gone. Writer/s: KYLE COOK, PAUL DOUCETTE, ROB THOMAS, ROBERT THOMAS, BRIAN YALE
