Mojave Rain

Hard Enough

 You let me into your life on a whim
And there was magic and fire in the night
In love and I was just a little boy
I made mistakes that caused you so much pain
All I know is that I'm older now

Some people think it's best to refrain
From the conventions of old fashioned love
Their hearts are filled with hole and emptiness
They tell themselves that they're too young to settle down
But I promise that I'm older now

And this has been hard enough on you
I know it's been hard enough on me
Been telling myself that I can roll with the changes
And when the water gets high above your head
Darling don't you see?
While this has been hard enough on you
It's been hard enough on me

I wasn't looking when we built these walls
Let me spread my dreams at your feet
Let's not let time's bitter flood rise
Before my thoughts begin to run
I think I'm getting older now

And this has been hard enough on you
I know it's been hard enough on me
Been telling myself that I can roll with the changes
And when the water gets high above your head
Darling don't you see?
While this has been hard enough on you
It's been hard enough on me

I can't stand the thought of another
Talking to you sweet my dear
Where would I be tonight
If you hadn't held me near
In your arms

And this has been hard enough on you
I know it's been hard enough on me
Been telling myself that I can roll with the changes
And when the water gets high above your head
Darling don't you see?
While this has been hard enough on you
It's been hard enough on me
