lyrics

IT'S HARD TO BELIEVE

its hard to believe all the trouble i’ve seen
the broken lives and empty dreams
it’s hard to believe when faith a term
the shell of some fine thing long forgotten
it’s hard to believe when love is gone
after all of the melting in pleasure
and it’s hard to admit now that we were wrong
thinking of ours as forever

it’s hard to accept when pain becomes real
and even your best friend is no consolation
it’s hard to accept the way we must feel
as if all our lives were initiation
and it’s hard to remember where we belong
when doors keep on opening and closing
it’s hard to remember when we were strong
and our voices reached out to all men

world of wonder world of woe
keeper of the night and the dawn
will we ever ever know
where the love has gone

so you say to yourself it’s time to define
it’s time to get back in control
you sit by the window you wait for a sign
you dream about someone who could fill the hole
and somehow you manage to rise up
with no one there to see
tomorrow will be a better day
and someday you’ll be free

world of wonder world of woe
keeper of the night and the dawn
will we ever ever know
where the love has gone
