Hard Times

Time is running away from reach

Your hands are shaking in your sleep

Your heart’s cold stone sober

Your eyes are barely open

———

Ring the bells

Let them know

——

I turned to the radio

For some relief

But all it did was yell at me

——-

Is everything broken

Hard times

In this time

Will we make it day by day

——

Do you see me

——

Do you hear me

——

There’s an unspoken understanding

You work until you die

——

There’s a whole lot of pain

There’s a whole lot of lonely

Am I empty

Or am I just sad

Did I misplace my soul

Instead of my keys ….

——

Let us sleep

——

Let us sleep

——

Is it too dark to die

Is it too hard to cry

Will we be buried

Will we see ?

I’ll be at my funeral

I’ve seen it in my dreams

I’m running out

Time out of mind

——-

Most of the time

I’m doing fine

But It feels like hard times

It feels like

This pain

But I don’t know what I would change it to, if I could,

it’s a fire tonight

It’s us

Right here

Right now

We will handle the rest

Little by little
