lyrics

The setting was perfect, the flowers looked real
I’ll give you credit you almost captured the feel

An authentic flourish, an artisan’s touch
It’s like real tradition, but now we decide when, why, and how much

Is it still second nature, if you don’t have a first
It’s harder to tell if it’s you or it’s me who’s been cursed

But you’ve got a hard-to-believe-in love, you’ve got a hard-to believe-in love
You’ve got a hard…hard…hard to believe in love

Got some reservations, still got expectations
Still got some life left flowing through these veins
But what’ll you do, honey, when gone is all that money?
When all you’re left with is the blood of stones?

The truth is a lion, don’t need to no defense
All you gotta do’s set it free, step back, and watch it defend itself

But you’ve got a hard-to-believe-in love, you’ve got a hard-to believe-in love
You’ve got a hard…hard…hard to believe in love

You play your hunch, I pay the cost, you stole the banks and my river got lost
And I can’t get ahead of the boss [in unison]
You can try if you want but you can’t get ahead of the boss

And you’ve got a hard…hard… you’ve got a hard to believe in love

Got some reservations, still got expectations
Still got some life left pumping through these veins
But what’ll you do, honey, when gone is all that money?
When all you’re left with is the blood of stones?

The truth is a lion, it don’t need no defense
All you gotta do is set it free to defend itself
