…AND A HARD PLACE

I’ve been between a rock and a hard place
I can’t even explain
but everything around me seemed to break
in its own way

I spent my days on the seashore
looking for a sail
and when I turned my back to the wind and the waves
believe me I prayed

CHORUS
hear me now
though I don’t know your name
your point’s been made
just get me home safe

I fought a losing battle with my ache
at the mercy of days
I was like the world’s latest widow
all of the way

CHORUS

the doorbell
unlatch, unchain
a worried face
then a look that’s like caving in
where have you been
I’ve been worried sick?

I’ve been between a rock and a hard place
I’ve been at the mercy of days
and every new disaster come my way
was only one more
hear me now
believe me when I say
if I’d have known I wouldn’t have left home
in the first place
