Marillion Hard As Love

Well I hear that you were looking out to hunt me down

And I guess you’re used to having everything you want

But you know that love can be as hard as sticks and stones

I tell you nothing else can be as hard as love can

Well I hear you got my number and you want my name

I’m a stream of noughts and crosses in your R-A-M

But you know that love can be as hard as algebra

Baby nothing else has ever been as hard as love

Hard as love

Well I hear that you were lookin’ out to take me home

And I hear that you can handle it and you’re not scared

Have you heard about the pictures on my bedroom wall?

Baby nothing else has ever been as hard as love

Hard as love

Well it makes you hungry and it makes you high

It makes you suffer and it makes you cry

But it’s all worthwhile

It makes you humble and it makes you crawl

It makes you tremble and it makes you fall

But it’s all worthwhile

It makes you desperate and it makes you dream

It makes you dangerous and it makes you scream

But it’s all worthwhile

Just lie back and smile

“We will continue to love you even though the rest of the world hates you.”

It makes you hungry and it makes you high

It makes you suffer and it makes you cry

It makes you panic and it makes you vain

It makes you primitive and sick inside

It makes you angry and it makes you blind

It makes you guilty and it makes you lie

Tied up and beaten

Spat out and eaten

Suicidal

Nothing’s ever been as hard

Well I hear that were lookin’ out to change my faith

You can bash me with your book of words, hammer me down

But you know that love can be as hard as six inch nails

Baby nothing else has ever been as hard as love

Hard as love
