2001 Garrett Clevenger

 

chorus:

A D It's hard to lose a friend.

Em A It's hard in the end.

F#m Bm It's hard to Love her when

C D you know your time is over and she's found another Lover.

D C G It's hard, it's hard, it's hard.

 

verse:

G D You know you were in Love when the one you called your Love can't be your friend.

D G When you see her with another, sharing hearts with each other and holding hands.

G D Your eyes turn to tears, you turn back to a time that cannot be.

D G So you turn around to avoid the memory and misery.

 

chorus:

It's hard to lose a friend. It's hard in the end.

It's hard to Love her when you know your time is over and

she's found another Lover.

It's hard, it's hard, it's hard.

 

verse:

She calls you on the telephone to tell you what she's done with her life.

How she's got a kid, now she is another's wife.

"I'm happy to hear that," you lie as you stare far away.

She asks you how you're doing, you tell her, "I think I am ok.

 

chorus:

"but it's hard to lose a friend.

It's hard in the end.

It's hard to Love you when I know our time is over now

you've found another Lover.

It's hard, it's hard, it's hard."

 

verse:

She tells you that she understands. She tells you that she knows how Love can be.

Then she tells you that she misses you and still thinks about those memories.

Her words are like a lightning bolt, from far away it cannot do you harm,

but the thunder rolls around you, her words are like a charm. She says,

 

chorus:

"It's hard to lose a friend.

It's hard in the end.

It's hard to Love me when

You know our time is over and

you haven't found a Lover.

It's hard, it's hard, it's hard."

 

verse:

Why must it be so hard to let the one you Love go her way?

It also isn't easy to return a smile that she sends your way.

When you see her with another sharing hearts with each other and holding hands.

Your smile turns down to a frown while you wish you could be friends

 

chorus:

'cause it's hard to lose a friend.

It's hard in the end.

It's hard to Love her when

you know your time is over and

you want her as your Lover.

It's hard, it's hard, it's hard.
