Don't take it so hard on me

 

Like Lightning in the distance

By the road side selling visions

un-complicate your system

in search of premonition

 

A secret known to warriors

whose company I keep

you can be both fragile

and be brave

 

ridden hard without complaint

unfairly burdened beast

who'll never turn to you as if to say

 

don't take it so hard on me.

 

Anyone can do it

don't you know that it's a fact

there aint nothing to it

well how about that

 

whatever gets you through it

thinking so dont make it bad

depends on how you view it

whatcha think about that?

 

In a world that seldom shows

a mercy to the strong

surprised to find what I need

to heal me

 

like any wounded creature

seeking shelter from the storm

a simple touch

is all I have to say

 

don't take it so hard on me.
