Naturally 7 – Harder Than That lyrics

They say a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush
I never cared about two, your my bird, you got crushed
I know I shoulda' been there, but I was busy
Doing nothin', girlfriends were like ("where is he?")
Are you gonna listen to them, or are you gonna listen to me
I hear ya talk about"you", why don't you talk about "we"
All ya talk about ("You could of stayed some more", But now you wanna work it out") Yea! Can we pray some more

Don't hurt me, desert me
Let's pray to God, work with me
It's easy, believe me
Just trust your heart, don't leave me
I don't know how you can say
That if it hurts this bad, just walk away
And now you say ya sorry and you're sad.......


I take it harder than that...(you think I don't?)
This ain't a game to play like that..(I know I won't)
I gave my word (true) the witness heard (who?) that's God
We said we'd never turn our backs...(we read the Book)
It told us love don't act like that...(so now I'm shook.. Feel my pain)
E-yo-oh, (one more time) E-yo-oh-woh.. I take it...

Harder than some, but better than most
I know I found me some comfort in the Holy Ghost
They say the family that prays together, stays together
So when that cloud get's too heavy, you can handle the weather
And I'm not ashamed to tell the whole story
(I heard you crying) So many tears you know my vision gets blury
No twenty, twenty no more, my pain is plenty for sure
And when it comes to my pride, I don't have any no more


It hits like carbon monoxide, killing me softly
I didn't see it coming through, I couldn't help it if I wanted to
For forty days and for forty nights, I was crying like a baby, honey can save me
I felt you slip away, just like a grain of sand
I held you tight as I could, but you still slipped through my hand
So now I'm calling you, will you return my call
(Why should I come back home?) Cause home is where you belong

You don't know, (tell me if you know)
How I feel....(can ya tell me about it!)
Is this love?....(who do ya love)
Is this real......(it's only now that I doubt it)

Cause if it is, you ain't never been apart of it
We made a promise in a prayer from the start of it
And now you say ya sorry and you're sad......


I take it harder...(than that* than that* than that)
Harder....(than that*than that*than that)
E-yo-oh, E-yo-oh-woh

I take it... Hard
I take it... Hard
I take it... Hard
