About The Song

The deepest and most meaningful relationships are forged in hardship.  You can survive everything and yet never be guaranteed anything.  We made it through it all, so why’s it still so hard?  This song is a personal reflection on this theme, and no conclusions are offered.


Lyrics

I am here
where are you
could have sworn you’d be passing through
it’s been awhile
girl I was a child back then
I held your hand, we came and went

And I never wanted anybody else but you
I never had more to lose
it feels like salt over an open wound
I know we fought a demon or two and made it through

It all, we swore we’d never fall apart
We made it through it all
So why’s it still so hard, why’s it still so hard

Nevermind all of the time we wasted
the road was bright and we chased it
but that was a while ago
it felt like a thousand Christmas mornings
we had back then, we could again

And I never wanted anybody else but you
I never had more to lose
it feels like salt over an open wound
I know we fought a demon or two and made it through

It all, we swore we’d never fall apart
We made it through it all
So why’s it still so hard, why’s it still so hard

Still so hard, still so hard, still so hard, still so hard

And I never wanted anybody else but you
I never had more to lose
it feels like salt over an open wound
I know we fought a demon or two and made it through

It all, we swore we’d never fall apart
We made it through it all
So why’s it still so hard, why’s it still so hard
