Harder Than It Seems

This song is by Guardian and appears on the album Bottle Rocket (1997).

Mystery girl runs away -
To a harlot city's hard embrace -
Seeking what's been advertised -
All the life that's been denied-
A fever burns in every joint-
A plea in every needlepoint-
Communion -
Can you have a perfect lover without understanding love?
Can you see a brighter future without seeking what you hide?
And I understand that simple truth is deeper than is wide -
Still I know...
Sometimes its harder than it seems-
Sometimes its harder than it seems-
Mystery girl walks alone-
Through the doors a hundred offerings made -
Hear the echo, touch the wood -
As a deeper longing longs for good...
And as the candle leaves your hand -
Feel the warmth and understand -
Communion -
Can you have a perfect lover without understanding love?
Can you see a brighter future without seeking what you hide?
And I understand that simple truth is deeper than is wide-
Still I know…
Sometimes it harder than it seems-
Sometimes it's harder than it seems-
And you're wanting to believe-
Sometimes it's harder than it seems -
Shame is like a blister every step will make it worse -
And the vessels of your great escape have all but disappeared -
And you hear the savior call you to a life beyond your means
And I know even a simple faith is harder than it seems- it seems-
Can you have a perfect lover without understanding love?
Can you see a brighter future without seeking what you hide?
And I understand that simple truth is deeper than is wide-
Still I know
Sometimes it's harder than it seems-
Sometimes it's harder than it seems-
And you're wanting to believe -
Sometimes it's harder than it seems -
