Hard Love

AROUND ME THEY GROW

CH
Fires and oceans
I could watch them
Forever, but oh
Around me they grow

Im a man for the song of the sirens
Im yer man for wandering this island
Land or sea and never tiring
But I stand my ground when the guns are firing

Ive sailed the swells as man and halfling
Ireland's Teardrop to the shores of Rathlin
When the skies tore and storms were forming
Id take no leave of the beauty aborning

CH

I found a wife from the valleys of Virginia
But sometimes you cant change whats within ya
Id just sit and watch her pine for Verona
She said Im leaving and I said I dont own ya.

I never learned when to stay still or sober
Friends fall away like leaves of October
Fights would flare in the bars of the harbours
Id think of her from the bars of Arbour

CH

Stood in the evening upon the Quay
Ive seen more sunsets than Im gonna see
And Ive been lower then Tennessee
On the strains of Shenandoah

But his voice rung sweet and easy
Like daring seas now fair and lazy
With wary eye on horizon hazy
Ill hold the days of mercy

THE HARDEST OF TIMES

CH
Its a hard love and theres many kinds
A hard love in the hardest of times
Hard love its a thin thin line
Hard love in the hardest of times

So take a look and come on down
Our no mans land once common ground
I know this heart of mines a hard hard sell
It runs like a dream under a hard hard shell

She bought it outright, no returns
Hit the highway with diesel burning

CH

So make tracks and multiply
But every breath you take is side by side
Theres nothing in the water , folk just break and they bend
Its just expectation that kills us in the end

Dig a little deeper, pull up every stone
They say we're just walking each other home

CH

Its a hard love and hard times they come
Sinking or sailing the band plays on
On through the night, on through the shadows
Into the deep or into the shallows
