Albert Hammond Jr – “Hard To Live (In The City)”

I love this song so much. I first heard it when I first moved to Bristol last year, and thought that it wasn’t really that hard to live in the city (you see what I did there? Oh never mind)
After living here a year or so, its still not too hard to live in the city, but sometimes, this girl needs a bit of country side time. I’m off to the Wife’s house tonight (getting the train to Castle Cary after drinks with some old colleagues…that can’t be good) and I can’t wait to see my lovely accounting geek friends!
As usual, the lyrics are under the cut.

Well its hard to live, its hard to live in the city
Yes its hard to live, so hard to live in the city

I’ve been following you for blocks and I wish you would stop and tell me your name
But I couldn’t understand what you told me as you ran away

So just lay your head down low,
Don’t let anybody know
That its hard to live, its hard to live in the city
Yes its hard to live, its hard to live in the city

There’s something about you that I couldnt tell
And you were always crazy
And I don’t like that

There’s something about you, that I knew so well
Tell those questions I have no answers
I wish that I could sit in the sun

So just lay your head down low,
Don’t let anybody know
That its hard to live, its hard to live in the city
Yes its hard to live, so hard to live in the city

What are you asking?
No need for walking out
You took all I could keep
You couldn’t tell me the look was on your face
I think that we have left

Tell those questions I have no answers
I wish that I could sit in the sun

Well its hard to live, its hard to live in the city
Yes its hard to live, so hard to live in the city

I’ve been following you for blocks and I wish you would stop and tell me your name
But I couldn’t understand what you told me as you ran away

So just lay your head down low,
Don’t let anybody know
That its hard to live, its hard to live in the city
Yes its hard to live, its hard to live in the city

There’s something about you that I couldnt tell
And you were always crazy
And I don’t like that

There’s something about you, that I knew so well
Tell those questions I have no answers
I wish that I could sit in the sun

So just lay your head down low,
Don’t let anybody know
That its hard to live, its hard to live in the city
Yes its hard to live, so hard to live in the city

What are you asking?
No need for walking out
You took all I could keep
You couldn’t tell me the look was on your face
I think that we have left

Tell those questions I have no answers
I wish that I could sit in the sun
