KT Tunstall - Hard Girls Lyrics


You soft girls
Trying to be hard girls
You know that nothing changes
Just be yourself

Never got a lot of empathy
Wearing my insides here on the outside
Could've got a little temporary relief
Peeling the broadside, getting the thrill
But it was just a distraction
To keep me up when I wasn't awake

Oh, well, you soft girls
Trying to be hard girls
You know that nothing changes
Nothing changes
Just be yourself
Nothing changes
Just be yourself

Following the path that I should
Baby, legacy leaving was completely deceiving
And I'd never gotten where I wanted to be
I didn't notice it was all just a show
I understand the attraction
Of wearing armour all the time

Oh, well, you soft girls
Trying to be hard girls
You know that nothing changes
Nothing changes
'Cause your hair's in your face
And all you good boys
Trying to be bad boys
You know that nothing changes
Nothing changes
Just be yourself

Turn it up!
You can do it!
Let's go!

Oh, oh, you soft girls
Trying to be hard girls
You know that nothing changes
Nothing changes
'Cause your hair's in your face
And all you good boys
Trying to be bad boys
You know that nothing changes
Nothing changes
Just be yourself

  20. Jorge Gomez

    Melanie C <3

  21. David Walsh

    Why has she started to resemble Lucy Lawless since 2016???

  22. Ryan Pearce

    This is the sort of music that should be topping the charts.... But instead, we've got record producers licking Drake's face every five minutes.....

    Rachel Fox

    Hahaha indeed. Some singers could be filmed going to the bathroom but KT releases an album, a great one at that, and no one really knows. :P

    sobering cat

    KT reminds me of the late 90s vibe

    Adrienne M

    Licking drake's face!! LMAO!!!


    Drake is musically more interesting tbh

    tomato sausage

    @sirvidia is he?

  23. Jeremy Asuncion

    amazing! a little different to KT's early jazz/folk influenced pop rock songs. This song reminds me of Liz Phair songs. And KT dressed like a younger Avril Lavigne in this video which is cool haha

  24. One Year Stand

    andrew turvill

    so true...i feel like i am growing with kt. i used to listen to the first album loads and now its like another person, but this is a new brighter version. so much to relate to. people just dont appreciate real music

    Mata Hari

    I mean she grew, so did her music and the depth never lacks. Because her live performances are always badass.. I Don t always like the studio versions.

  88. Dominique Keller

    Propulsée star internationale, en 2005, par _Black Horse And The Cherry Tree_, qui fit connaître instantanément son folk-rock âpre, Kate Victoria Tunstall aka *KT Tunstall* mène depuis une carrière un tantinet moins tapageuse mais tout aussi louangeuse, estampillée par des prestations scéniques singulières et une indépendance d'esprit qui voit la fougueuse Ecossaise publier aujourd'hui un cinquième opus (_Kin_, 09/09), possiblement plus rock que folk, mais pas moins féminin, jusqu'au bout du casque.

  89. Carlos Guillermo Contreras Araya

    Come to Brazil KT! I love your new video ❤️...even more with Mel C in it! 😍
