John Waite – The Hard Way lyrics

(John Waite/Jeffrey Steele)

Jenny's sitting in the car
In the middle of some abandoned Shoney's parking lot
Ripping off the filters off her cigarettes
Crying, he loves me, loves me not
She checks her makeup in the rearview mirror and turns the radio on
It hasn't hit her yet
But all she's looking at is another lonely night coming on

Everybody learns the hard way
The hard way about love
It's easy to think that there's something better out there somewhere
But make no mistake
Everybody learns the hard way about love

Meanwhile across town Tommy's in a dark bar watching some blonde girl shaking all she's got
Out on the tiles, out on the edge
He's gonna give it his best shot
All that hard earned money ever got him was all alone
It's two in the morning and the only thing that's falling is the rain
And it's a long walk home

Everybody learns the hard way
The hard way, yeah
The hard way about love
It's easy to think that there's something better out there somewhere
But make no mistake
Everybody learns the hard way about love
Everybody learns the hard way about love

And in the cold heart light of day
Romeo doesn't always get his Juliet
You take your hands off the wheel
Your eyes off the prize
You'll get a lesson that you won't forget
Down on your knees and regret

Chorus
