Hard Advice

Album: 24 Karat Gold: Songs From the Vault (2014)
  • Sometimes, late at night
    I turn on the radio
    Your music fills the room
    I just can't seem to get away from you

    Saw a life-size paper doll of you
    In a record store
    My friends, as well as me
    Can't seem to let you go
    It was finished long ago

    Sometimes he's my best friend
    Even when he's not around
    But the sound of his voice
    Well, it follows me down
    And reminds me

    Another famous friend told me
    "Love doesn't make a clean break"
    Didn't talk about heartache
    "You have to let him go" Oh

    Get over it
    Remember how it was
    Before our infamous past
    Had begun
    You have to let him go
    He gives such hard advice, oh

    He gives such hard advice
    He says, "Don't think twice
    Turn off the radio
    It was finished long ago
    Go write some real songs
    This is all wrong"

    Sometimes he's my best friend
    Even when he's not around
    But the sound of his voice
    Well, it follows me down
    And reminds me

    Sometimes he's my best friend
    Even when he's not around
    But the sound of his voice
    Well, it follows me down
    And reminds me

    "You have to get over this
    This pain's gone on too long
    Go and write some real songs
    Stay out of music stores
    Don't buy that doll"

    Sometimes, sometimes
    "Turn off that radio
    Turn off that radio
    Don't buy that doll
    Don't buy that doll" Writer/s: STEPHANIE NICKS
