Hard Man To Love Lyrics

by Kevin Fowler

The phone call in the middle of the night, it never came
She's been walkin' on pins and needles
Waitin' for the phone to ring
To put her mind at ease

The suns' comin' up and I'm comin' in
With another, "I'm sorry, it won't happen again"
I can't understand why she never ran
When anybody in their right mind would

Yeah, I'm a hard man to love
But thank God she does
Keep holdin' on, bein' strong
When, "I'm sorry" just ain't enough

Soft as silk she stands
By her barbed wire man
She's never given up
I'm a hard man to love

There's a dog house rose that God knows
I didn't send soon enough
Sittin' in the middle of a crippled kitchen table
Barely standing up from where I kicked it once

It ain't pretty enough to make up for me messin' up
The only love a man could ever need
She shines forgiveness from her patient eyes
I don't see what they see in me

Yeah, I'm a hard man to love
But thank God she does
Keep holdin' on, bein' strong
When, "I'm sorry" just ain't enough

Soft as silk she stands
By her barbed wire man
She's never given up
I'm a hard man to love

But I found someone tough enough
To love a man like me
In spite of the tears she's cried
And the time she's tried so hard to love

This hard man to love
But thank God she does
Keep holdin' on, bein' strong
When, "I'm sorry" just ain't enough

Soft as silk she stands
By her barbed wire man
She's never given up
I'm a hard man to love
No she's never given up
On this hard man to love
