about

‘It’s just like yesterday
Looking in and not belonging
Where they just throw life away
Not caring where it lands
And I still feel the lonely cold
The longing for a hand to hold
Where every touch
is bought and sold
Letting love is hard’

lyrics

LETTING LOVE IS HARD

It seems like yesterday
I can feel the place around me
I keep putting it away
But the memories have found me
Some were good and some were bad
Whatever it was it breaks your heart
Faces shift like moons adrift
Letting love is hard

It’s just like yesterday
Looking in and not belonging
Where they just throw life away
Not caring where it lands
And I still feel the lonely cold
The longing for a hand to hold
Where every touch is bought and sold
Letting love is hard

Chorus
Letting love, letting love
Be a friend to you
Letting love, come again
Letting love come through

It seems like yesterday
When a shilling was a fortune
And a smile was more than cash
You could count upon a friend
But friends are few, some let you down
Twenty-five pence for half a crown
And bankers run this country now
Letting love is hard

It seems like yesterday
I can feel your arms around me
The wind would slow and still
I sheltered from the world
And all the feelings tumbling out
We never spoke our hearts would shout
We cannot live and never doubt
That letting love is hard

Chorus
Letting love, letting love
Be a friend to you
Letting love come again
Letting love come through

It seems like yesterday
And it’s just like the beginning
When I was young and daft
And all the world was singing
I know it won’t be the same
Cos trust was lost and lost again
Don’t know if I can stand the pain
Letting love is hard

It feels like yesterday
With the sun upon me shoulders
I keep putting it away
Cos the clouds are coming down
But I can’t hide or stay apart
From tears and smiles and broken hearts
But where to land and where to start
Letting love is hard

Letting love, letting love
Be a friend to you
Letting love come again
Letting love come through
