lyrics

She said, “I’ve had enough - this is the last time
I can’t stand the way this makes me, or the person that I have become
But Goddamn I’m terrified of what’s lying in wait on the other side”
So she spoke in absolutes trying to balance the truth with an excuse

I wish there was a softer way home

But ain’t nothing
Coming easy
To anyone we know
We’ve made our choices
Which carry prices
You can’t afford to pay
You’ve always had to learn the hardest way
Always had to learn the hardest way

She sold her happiness to black tar and a pharmacist
Trying hard to resist the temptation pulsing through her wrist
She said, “I curse the fucking day that I learned to be this way
It’s cost me everything; how can you even stand the sight of me?”

I wish there was a softer way home

But ain’t nothing
Coming easy
To anyone we know
We’ve made our choices
Which carry prices
You can’t afford to pay
You’ve always had to learn the hardest way
Always had to learn the hardest way

Now I don’t want to sound calloused; I wasn’t shocked at all
When I got the fucking call - they found you lifeless in a bathroom stall

You had to learn the hardest way
You always had to learn the hardest way
