about

lyrics

It’s no joke
It’s a fragile, fragile thing
One minute we’re sitting around laughing
The next minute everything’s changing

I need to know
That you’re gonna be okay
But the only thing I’ve ever really learned
Is that there are no guarantees

My hard time friend
When all the other good time buddies
Have all run from the wind
My hard time friend

30 years ago
I started working on this song
Cross legged trying to conjure up
Someone like you to come along
it wasn’t fate
It was a scratched up wooden floor
It was 24 hours through Ohio in the rain
Til I was soaking wet
Standing on your porch

My hard time friend
When all the other good time buddies
Have all run from the wind
My hard time friend

Here we are tired and obscured
Pulling the weight of the centuries
My hand reaching for yours

My hard time friend...
