Redlight King - Times Are Hard Lyrics




Sooner or later life will pull you in
Make you choose to rather sink or swim
Some where down the line it's gonna' break your heart
Put you out and make you wear the scars.

All these dreams come with all this doubts
When we can't fit in we try to find a way out
Learn to fight so they don't seal our faith
They say you never see it coming till it's way too late.

These times are hard
It feels like nothings' gonna change
No where to start and you got nothing for the pain
'Cause when life moves fast it don't matter who you are
You gotta find someone to hold on to
Damn! These times are hard.

We build those bridges and we watch them burn
So quick to pull the trigger, so slow to take our turn
We've all been locked out, we've broken down the door
Some of us hit the dirt, some of us do come back for more
When the thirst get so bad you're just dying to get a taste
When it don't envolve religion, when it don't envolve the race
And theres' everything to lose 'cause we were never born to win
Willing to sacrifice everything we had just to roll the dice again

These times are hard
It feels like nothings' gonna change
No where to start and you got nothing for the pain
'Cause when life moves fast it don't matter who you are
You gotta find someone to hold on to
Damn! These times are hard.

Hey!

Life isn't perfect so it's just what you make it
And that's what they tell you
But it's hard when they're holding you down
Somebody out there for you
The pain it all gets easy someone you hold on to.

These times are hard
It feels like nothings' gonna change
No where to start and you got nothing for the pain
'Cause when life moves fast it don't matter who you are
You gotta find someone to hold on to.
Damn! These times are hard.

Yeah! Yeah!
These times are hard
Ohhhhhhhh!!!!

'Cause when life moves fast it don't matter who you are
You gotta find someone to hold on to.
Damn! Damn!
These times are hard.

My daughter hear me listened to this song and said at school she goes out of district with Rich kids when asked if she was ok with a hot dog she said Damm these times are hard and said it's all I need. Know that this song has some heart. We are ok now .but sometimes you have to suck it up and just hold on. Real story. Real people.

    Music has gotten me through so many tough times in life and will continue to do so. Songs like this or groups like Shinedown, the doors have kept me sane and see the other side.

    heathenbreathinfire

    +David H. Wild Music is the universal language.

    Chloe Prindel

    man if you listen to the doors they get you through anything in the world. they can make your problems all melt away. Jim is a god and there's bits of magic in the music

    heathenbreathinfire

    @Chloe Prindel Pink Floyd is like that also.

    Chloe Prindel

    +heathenbreathinfire yesss and the dead. put on american beauty and suddenly its all so clear

    Great song.

  77. Michael Rogers

    this song makes me feel like i need to forgive the who hates me.....

  78. Evan Sampson™

    I can't imagine why songs like "Blank Space" or "All About That Bass" have more views than this. Do people really prefer to listen to songs about something like having a boyfriend than a song about getting through hard times? Well, I guess to each their own...

    joshua howard

    *are, damn autocorrect

    Rod Ross

    +TheChosenSquirrel it's a virus

    Someone

    Evan Sampson™ well maybe those people will come here once they get broken up? 🤔

    Mike Burns

    Evan Sampson™ I think that people just don't know the meaning of Music anymore. and what good music really is. music used to have meaning and people appreciated it. but now all they want is music with Beats instead of lyrics

    Darin Smith

    Evan Sampson™ agreed.

  79. musicsuxnowadays
