Jim Croce – The Hard Way Every Time lyrics

The Hard Way Every Time

Yeah, I've had my share of broken dreams
Written by - Jim Croce

And more than a couple of falls
And in chasin' what I thought were moonbeams

I have run into a couple of walls
But in looking back at the places I've been

The changes that I've left behind

I just look at myself to find

I've learned the hard way every time

'Cause I've had my share of good intentions

And I've made my share of mistakes

And I've learned at times it's best to bend

Should have listened to all the things I was told
'Cause if you don't well those are the breaks

But I was young and too proud at the time

Now I look at myself to find
I learn the hard way ev'ry time

But in looking back at the lessons I've learned

And the mountains I wanted to climb

I just look at myself to find
I've learned the hard way ev'ry time

'Cause I've had my share of broken dreams

And more than a couple of falls

And in chasin' what I thought were moonbeams
I have run into a couple of walls

But in looking back at the faces I've been

I would sure be the first one to say

When I look at myself today
Wouldn'ta done it any other way
