Céline Dion – The Hard Way lyrics
[Verse 1]
I been, I been, I been
I been touching fires for the sake of feelin'
I been chasing,  chasing
Chasing all these highs so I could crash the ceiling
I been restless, tempted to follow every devil way down
I took it so low and at the time, it looked like no way out

[Pre-Chorus]
I had to see
Try to believe
I write my story and this ain't how it's ending
Said to myself, said to myself
"This ain't how I'm gonna go down"

[Chorus]
When the bottom hit my soul
I had to climb up all alone
When the night shut down my hope
I had to find a light to hold
You gotta break just a little, die just a little
To come alive in the right way
And sometimes to get home you gotta go
The hard way, hard way

[Verse 2]
Turnin', turnin', turnin'
Turnin' every corner 'cause my heart was yearning
For something more than 4 am
Messed up in bed, no, I don't miss that feeling
I don't see a reason
Chasing love down a dead end
But see the truth is
I wouldn't know that unless I did

[Pre-Chorus]
I had to see
Try to believe
I write my story and this ain't how it's ending
Said to myself, said to myself
"This ain't how I'm gonna go down"

[Chorus]
When the bottom hit my soul
I had to climb up all alone
When the night shut down my hope
I had to find a light to hold
You gotta break just a little, die just a little
To come alive in the right way
And sometimes to get home you gotta go
The hard way

[Bridge]
I wouldn't know what I'm made of
If I took the easy way out (I took the easy way out)
As long as it took me to get here
The hard times were worth what I found (I found)
I wouldn't know what I'm made of (I wouldn't know)
If I took the easy way out (I took the easy way out)
As long as it took me to get here (To get here)
The hard times were worth what I found

[Chorus]
When the bottom hit my soul
I had to climb up all alone
When the night shut down my hope
I had to find a light to hold
You gotta break just a little, die just a little
To come alive in the right way
And sometimes to get home you gotta go
The hard way
