HARDER THAN IT HAS TO BE (R. Harcourt)

It kind of feels familiar. A place I’ve been before.
Before I traveled clear across the world to build a different girl at the core.
I walked on the moon. I orbited the sun.
I swam in every lake I could find just to see the colors run.

All the labor and the analyzing
Twisting history and the redefining
Always looking for the silver lining

You say you want to be free
You have a right to your truth and intentions
Get out of your way and see
Sometimes you make it harder than it has to be


I thought I’d done the groundwork and all the letting go.
They did the best they could do with what they had they’re off the hook
and eating crow
Aren’t you getting tired of looking in the mirror
And seeing all that ancient pain and suffering alive in your tears

Find a diamond in a dirty drain
Walk a tightrope in the pouring rain
Go fly a kite in a hurricane

You say you want to be free
You have a right to your truth and intentions
Get out of your way and see
Sometimes you make it harder than it has to be

Tangled up in red, looking for the green
Caught a little glimpse of who I mean to be, of who I mean to be

You say you want to be free
You have a right to your truth and intentions
Get out of your way and see
Sometimes you make it harder than it has to be
