The Hardest Part Lyrics
The Hardest Part
Written by Allison Moorer and Doyle Primm

Children say that words will never harm you
Only sticks and stones can make you cry
But they'll grow up one day and learn the real truth
When the one they love says goodbye
*The hardest part of living is loving
'Cause loving turns to leaving every time
And the hardest part of leaving is living
Life is hard when love is so unkind
Life is hard when love is so unkind*
I don't trust old sayings any longer
Most are only decorated lies
Absence doesn't make the heart grow fonder
And out of sight don't mean out of mind
(repeat chorus)

(*chorus*)



Day You Said Goodbye
Written by Allison Moorer and Doyle Primm

When the first hint of sunshine
Peeks between the window blinds
And the morning hits my pillow
The sweetest dream is left behind
I'd rather die than face a new day
'Cause I always wake to find
That I'm feeling just as lonely
As the day you said goodbye
Can you feel me reaching for you
In the middle of the night
What I'd give to hold you darling
Within these arms of mine
All my heartache would be over
If my dream came true one time
Then I wouldn't have to live with
The day you said goodbye




It's Time I Tried
Written by Allison Moorer and Doyle Primm

Sorrow I'm told comes and goes
But that ain't what I say
'Cause for me, the misery never goes away
It's been like this ever since you told me goodbye
And I've refused to lose these blues
But it's time I tried
*It's time I tried to mend my broken heart
Dry my eyes and make a brand new start
I have to heal this hurt I feel
And get you off my mind
It might be hard but it's time I tried*
All I do is long for you
When I turn out the lights
'Cause nothing's left
But loneliness
To hold onto at night
I toss and turn
While my heart yearns
For love I've been denied
I can't replace your warm embrace
But it's time I tried
(repeat chorus)
It's time I tried


(*chorus*)




Best That I Can Do
Written by Allison Moorer and Doyle Primm

When you left I never thought I'd say
I'm better off without you anyway
But just because I say the words
Don't mean I think they're true
It's just that it's the best that I can do
I don't go to places you might be
I can't take the chance that we might meet
But just because I've stayed away
Don't mean I wanted to
It's just that it's the best that I can do
Someday I'll do better but 'til then
I can't let you know how hurt I've been
I wish I had you back with me
But I wont play on your sympathy
To get you in my arms once again
I admit there are others I have seen
Sometimes I need the company
But just because I'm loving them
Don't mean I'm over you
It's just that it's the best that I can do




Think It Over
Written by Allison Moorer and Doyle Primm

You crawl back tonight saying you miss me
With your tail between your legs
What's going on here ain't no mystery
Still it's fun watching you beg
Settling down won't come natural
But think it over
I hear you found someone who's true
That she treats you fine
Now that poor girl's love won't do
And you're wanting some of mine
Settling down won't come natural
But think it over
I know why you cheat on me
Always running 'round and 'round
Every time I turn my back
You'll never change
Every woman loves a bit differently
But hurts the same
That's what keeps you going
That's what keeps you trapped
Don't tell me you've learned your lesson
Unless you really want to quit
It takes more than a confession
For an old dog to learn new tricks
Settling down won't come natural
But think it over




Bring Me All Your Lovin'

Written by Allison Moorer, Doyle Primm, and Kenny Greenberg

Please don't bring me flowers
Tied up in a pretty bow
I'd trade a thousand roses
For just one hand to hold
And I don't want no candy
Sugar hurts my teeth
All I want is you tonight
That'd be really sweet
*There's nothing at the five and dime
That I really need
Your kiss is the only gift
That means a thing to me
Bring me all your lovin'
That's something you ain't tried
Bring me all your lovin'
And I'll be satisfied*
I don't want a poem
Written fancy on a card
I'd rather have I love you
Scribbled on my heart
And I wont wear a new dress
From a downtown store
But wrap me up in your arms
And baby I'll be yours
(repeat chorus)
That's the truth
There's nothing at the five and dime
That I really need
Your kiss is the only gift
That means a thing to me
Bring me all your lovin'
That's something you can't buy
Bring me all your lovin'
And I'll give you all of mine
Bring me all your lovin'
Throw your presents in the creek
Bring me all your lovin'
And I'll be tickled pink


(*chorus*)



Is It Worth It
Written by Allison Moorer and Doyle Primm

Is it worth it
You gotta wonder
No sane person
Would say it was
It's for certain
We're going under
Things ain't working
Between the two of us
Is it worth it
To go on trying
We keep rehearsing
And getting worse
Let's close the curtain
This act's dying
We did our version
It didn't work
Is it worth the price we are paying
Is it worth the damage being done
Is it worth the both of us staying
If you think so then you're the only one
Is it worth it
What are we doing
Let's not be martyrs
For the sake of love
This is a burden
Of our own choosing
It'd be smarter if we gave up





Send Down An Angel
Written by Allison Moorer and Doyle Primm

It's nearly 3 a.m. and still no sight of him
When it comes to love I'm in the dark
Lord, I don't understand why I stand by my man
All he's ever done is break my heart
*Won't you send down an angel from the blue
To show me the righteous thing to do
Oh I'm calling out to you
Send down an angel to get me through*
I'm not the praying kind but it can't hurt to try
I can't find the answer by myself
I need help
(repeat chorus twice)


(*chorus*)




No Next Time (with Lonesome Bob)
Written by Allison Moorer and Doyle Primm

You've finally gone and done it
Broke it right in two
There's no way you can fix it
So pocket your excuse
Don't tell me that you're sorry
That'll only make it worse
I'm tired of your story
I know it word for word
I make no bones about it
Stupid is as stupid does
I had to learn the hard way
You're a man that I can't trust
If only I'd known sooner
I was gonna be betrayed
I would've left the first time
I ever heard you say
*I didn't mean to break your heart
I apologize
If you'll just give me one more chance
There'll be no next time
I promise I will never break your heart
again...again...again*
Right now it's a hurting
But it'll be ok
I'll pick up both the pieces
And be on my way
You know that I love you
That's been my mistake
So before I go let's hear it
Once more for old times sake
(repeat chorus)


(*chorus*)


Feeling That Feeling Again
Written by Allison Moorer and Doyle Primm

The moment these lips said I'm leaving
I felt in my heart I was wrong
But I told myself I might as well
Since I already spent nights alone
I thought I'd put it behind me
Guess that's why I'm so surprised
That my heart started racing
When I ran into you tonight
*I'm feeling that feeling again
Exactly like I did back then
But darling only a fool
Would take one more chance with you*
There was a good reason why
I had to tell you goodbye
But I can't pretend it's not love that I'm in
'Cause I'm feeling that feeling again
Now I'm lying here like I used to
Lonesome as a young widowed bride
And just like the old days
Before I went my way
A question is burning inside
Were we made for each other
To walk through the fire hand in hand
Well I'll never know for certain
But I'm feeling that feeling again
(repeat chorus)
