HARD TIMES FALL

This song is a straight up tribute to one of the masters of rock and roll, Jimi Hendrix. This song was written for all those people who have ever been in love and have been told the: "Its not you, its me" line , or "I'm just not in a good place right now", or the "I'm not emotionally available right now" speech. Everyone goes through rough times, and at the same time, everyone wants love... so those lines are bunch of crap. Hendrix was known for having a rough love life, and this song was written in his honor.

LYRICS:
Your love is like a suicide
Manic depression is like a thorn in my side
But I'll live my love with love inside
You walk away cos' you got too much pride

Your love is like a burning flame
Get too close might get scorched in pain
You know which way the wind it blows
To keep that fire burning, love, too hard to say no

But will you listen or will you turn away?
See what you're missing .. day after day

Hard times fall on us all
Crawl, like a baby
Cos' you can't live, you can't give
You can't learn, you can't wait your turn
To be burned by my fire

My life may have it ups & downs
I've been to heaven, been to hell and back around
You live your life in misery
Don't you like heaven baby?
don't you wanna be free?

See what your missing .. day after day
It's time I listened to myself and just walked away

Hard times fall on us all
Crawl like a baby
Cos' you can't live, you can't give
You can't learn, you can't wait your turn
To be burned by my fire
