The Hard Way Submit Correct Lyrics

Jenny's sitting in the car
In the middle of some abandoned Shoney's parking lot
Ripping off the filters off her cigarettes
Crying, he loves me, loves me not

She checks her makeup in the rearview mirror
And turns the radio on
It hasn't hit her yet but all she's looking at
Is another lonely night coming on

Everybody learns the hard way, the hard way about love
It's easy to think that there's something better out there somewhere
But make no mistake
Everybody learns the hard way about love

Meanwhile across town Tommy's in a dark bar
Watching some blonde girl shaking all she's got
Out on the tiles, out on the edge
He's gonna give it his best shot

All that hard earned money ever got him was all alone
It's two in the morning
And the only thing that's falling is the rain
And it's a long walk home

Everybody learns the hard way, yeah the hard way about love
It's easy to think that there's something better out there somewhere
But make no mistake
Everybody learns the hard way about love
Everybody learns the hard way about love

And in the cold heart light of day, Romeo doesn't always get his Juliet
You take your hands off the wheel your eyes off the prize
You'll get a lesson that you won't forget
Down on your knees and regret

Everybody learns the hard way about love
Everybody learns the hard way about love, yeah
And it's easy to think that there's something better out there somewhere
But make no mistake
Everybody learns the hard way about love, yeah, yeah

About love everybody learns the hard way baby, about love
That's right, about love
Everybody learns
