A Hard Refrain
Lyrics
With paper and pencil, I wrote down some lines
About a love that had truckloads of warning signs
It was long ago, but there still is some pain
Cos' the song remains

She had eyes that held me in that uncomfortable place
Black hair and red lips and scorn on her face
Over time I got over and a little more sane
But the song remains

And the recurring words open old wounds
The waltzy old meter the familiar tune
Just when I see daylight, just when I see gains
Comes a hard refrain

I remember my singing a chorus or two
While she sat there anxious for me to get through
I guess she knew the ending and it was more of the same
Just a hard refrain

The recurring words they open old wounds
The waltzy old meter the familiar tune
Just when I see daylight, just when I see gains
Comes a hard refrain

They call this cathartic...to recall the heartache..but I wish I could forget this song

Cos the recurring words open old wounds
The waltzy old meter the familiar tune
Just when I see daylight, just when I see gains
Comes a hard refrain
