From the recording (Hard Time) Comin' Out

Lyrics

(HARD TIME) COMIN’ OUT
 
V1  Sometimes you gotta break with tradition
       Go where you go from no matter where you came
       It’s your life, it’s your life
       You don’t have to live a lie
       Got to live with yourself
       Till the day you die
 
V2  I ain’t sayin’ there’ll be no resistance
       Some will believe all the bad that they’ve heard
       And you can’t turn back
       Once you open the door
       But it’s better in the long run
       I’ve been there before
 
C1*And it’s a hard time comin’ out
       There’s a lot you have to get off your chest
       Yeah, it’s a hard time comin’ out
       But once you’ve done it
       It’s the best damn feeling, the best!
 
V3  People tend to judge a man by his cover
       Don’t wanna look at the human underneath
       They’re afraid of the truth
       But you know it in your mind
       Make the change from within
       Leave the past behind
 
C2*And it’s a hard time comin’ out
       It’s hard to stop runnin’ scared
       Yeah, it’s a  hard time comin’ out
       But it’s a deep, dark closet
       And your soul is beggin’ for air
 
V4  Faith in God is the key to existence
       Faith in the truth is the spirit in the dark
       Keep the faith, keep the faith
       There’s an end to the night
       And you’ll see the morning after
       In a beautiful light
 
C1*And it’s a hard time comin’ out
       There’s a lot you have to get off your chest
       Yeah, it’s a hard time comin’ out
       But once you’ve done it
       It’s the best damn feeling, the best!
