So Hard

Back when we started
We didn't know how hard it was
Living on nothing
But what the wind would bring to us
Now we've got something
I can imagine fighting for
So why is fighting all that we're good at anymore

And sometimes I don't have the energy
To prove everybody wrong
And I try my best to be strong
But you know it's so hard
It's so hard

It's so hard when it doesn't come easy
It's so hard when it doesn't come fast
It's so hard when it doesn't come easy
It's so hard

It felt like a given
Something a woman's born to do
A natural ambition
To see a reflection of me and you

And I'd feel so guilty
If that was a gift I couldn't give
And could you be happy
If life wasn't how we pictured it

And sometimes I just want to wait it out
To prove everybody wrong
And I need your help to move on
Cause you know it's so hard
It's so hard

It's so hard when it doesn't come easy
It's so hard when it doesn't come fast
It's so hard when it doesn't come easy
So hard

I can live for the moment
When all these clouds open up for me to see
And show me a vision
Of you and me swimming peacefully

Last night you told me
That you can't remember
How to feel free

It's so hard when it doesn't come easy
It's so hard when it doesn't come fast
It's so hard when it doesn't come easy, easy

It's so hard

Dixie Chicks

I know that this song has been around for awhile. I heard it the other day driving home from work. It was perfect for how I have been feeling. Why does it all have to be so hard? Why can't it be easy?

I love that song. That disc is actually playing in my car right now. It's been in there for a few weeks. I don't know why it has to be so hard. But it is. It's so hard.

It really is "so hard". And so not fair.

The first time I heard that song on the radio, I had to pull the car over because I started crying too hard to drive. It shouldn't be that hard. I'm so grateful that someone put those feelings -- our feelings -- into such a beautiful song.

What an amazing, and appropriate, song. I remember when I was little, and my mom would tell me (in response to my complaining about something or other) that "life just isn't fair." I hated hearing that. And when I was going through infertility, through IVF, through premature babies and NICU, and difficulty breastfeeding, she told me the same thing when I cried and complained. There is no reason this is happening, it's just that "life isn't fair, sweetheart."

It's so very true, but what you do with, and how you handle, that inequality, that hopelessness, and that heartache, makes you into a new and different (hopefully stronger) woman.

It never feels good. I'm so sorry.

I need to buy this CD, cuz this song never comes on my local radio station though they play lots o' the other chicks songs.

I cried the first time I heard it.
