The Hard Way Lyrics – The Shires

When I was 5 I’d ride my bike faster then the wind
Mama said, “If you don’t slow down you’re gonna fall right off that thing”
Well, I learned that the hard way
Sneaking out after dark looking for teenage kicks
Daddy said, “Don’t drink too much, it’s the worse kind of sin”
And I learned that the hard way

The hardest thing I ever learned was

You’re only gonna know what you’ve got
When you know it’s not coming back
You’re only gonna know what to say
When it’s too little, too late
It’s me and my heart alone in the dark
Now you’re gone like you said you’d be gone one day
If I didn’t change
And I learned that the hard way

I should’ve said ‘I love you’ more
I should’ve given you all my time
I should’ve asked you, “Baby, what’s wrong?”
When you said, “Everything’s fine”
I knew you were lying
And I learned that the hard way

The hardest thing I ever learned was

You’re only gonna know what you’ve got
When you know it’s not coming back
You’re only gonna know what to say
When it’s too little, too late
It’s me and my heart alone in the dark
Now you’re gone like you said you’d be gone one day
If I didn’t change
And I learned that the hard way

I only knew how to love you when I lost you
When I lost you
You’re only gonna know what you’ve got
When you know it’s not coming back
You’re only gonna know what to say
When it’s too little, too late

You’re only gonna know what you’ve got
When you know it’s not coming back
You’re only gonna know what to say
When it’s too little, too late
It’s me and my heart alone in the dark
Now you’re gone like you said you’d be gone one day
If I didn’t change, if I didn’t change
Ooh, I should’ve changed
And I learned that the hard way

I learned that the hard way
I learned that the hard way
