The Hardest

from by Nicholas Wells

lyrics

I used to kneel down praying
But no one heard, it seems
Everything was telling me
Follow your dreams

I’ll never understand it
I’ll always wonder why
You can always lose
No matter how hard you try

Well I thought I was dreaming
I was just wasting time
Living this life like it’s meant to be mine
But there’s no hope for nothing
And nothing at all
When the hardest you wish is the hardest you fall

When someone else is winning
Someone’s playing fair
The rules don’t really matter
When life doesn’t care

I’ll try to keep believing
I’ll wake up safe and sound
I’ll try to face the world
As it’s beating me down

Well I thought I was dreaming
I was just wasting time
Living this life like it’s meant to be mine
But there’s no hope for nothing
And nothing at all
When the hardest you wish is the hardest you fall

Oh, look at me now
Smiling to keep myself moments from just breaking down
And oh, isn’t it weird
How everything you could hope for could just disappear

Well I thought I was dreaming
I was just wasting time
Living this life like it’s meant to be mine
But there’s no hope for nothing
And nothing at all
When the hardest you wish is the hardest you fall
