Kurt Vile - Too Hard Lyrics




Take your time,
So they say and that's probably
The best way to be, but what about
Those who are fathers and
What about their daughters?
I will promise to do my very best,
To do my duty,
For God and my country,
Hey but I'm just human after all.
I will promise not to smoke too much and
I will promise not to party
Too hard... too hard... too hard...
(it's too hard)

Did you ever bang on a xylophone
That took you everywhere from home?
Well I did... Well I've tried...
Life is like a ball of beauty that
Makes you wanna just cry, then you die.

I will promise to go outta my way
To do the right thing from now on.
(Believe me, baby.)
There comes a time in every man's life
When he's gotta take hold of the hand
That ain't his but it is.
Take your time, so they say, and that's
Gotta be the best way, but what about
Those who are fathers and
What about the others?
I know that you don't know a stranger
But I'm no stranger than the rest
And I'm no stranger to you.

Take your time they say it's all around
And I think I'd say I know
Just where that I am bound.
There comes a time in every man's life
When he's gotta hold tight
To the heart of the matter at hand.
So take your time, baby girl,
Cause that's, that's the best of all.
(One day you'll believe me, baby...)
I will promise to do my very best
To do my very best for you,
And that won't be
Too hard... too hard... too hard...

  3. TheGarabella

    Take your time
    So they say
    And that’s probably the best way to be
    But what about those who are followers and what about hit artists
    I will promise to do my very best
    To do my duty for god and my country even though I'm just human, after all 
    I will promise not to smoke to much and I will promise not to party
    Too hard
    Too hard
    Too hard
    Its too hard
    Did you remember the xylophone that took you everywhere from home
    Well I did
    Well I've tried
    Life is like a ball of beauty
    That makes you want to just cry
    Then you die
    Yeah yeah yeah
    I will promise to go out of my way, to do the right thing from now on, believe me baby
    There comes a time in every mans life 
    When hes got to take hold of the hands that ain't his but it is
    Take your time so they say,
    And that’s got to be the best way
    But what about those who are fathers and what about the others
    I know that you don’t know a stranger
    But i´m no stranger than the rest
    And i´m no stranger to you
    Yeah yeah yeah
    Take your time they say
    Is all around and I think I've seen 
    I've noticed where i´m bound
    There comes a time in every mans life 
    Where he got to hold tight to the heart of the matter of hands
    So take your time baby girl
    Because that’s, that’s the best of all
    One day you´ll believe me
    I will promise to do my very best, to do my very best for you
    And that wont be to hard
    Too hard
    Too hard

  4. Brenda Luna

    the song that made me get to know Kurt
    i can see the families on vacations spouses on their honey moon
    children playing in the Summer day
    everyone's happy

  5. Adrien Potvin

    I'm not sure why, but this song sounds quintessentially, if not ironically, "American." It's almost like a personal pledge to something unclear as of yet.

  6. bwytacig

    Anyone who ever denies the sheer beauty of this track, deserves my instant and unflinching disrespect

    TTuoTT

    +bwytacig alright

    Andrew Call

    untrue. dig all, dig always, never dig anything less

  7. nachobed

    1:39  does those riffs remind anyone of a song?
    its been bothering me for the last three days, I'm thinking it might be a lynyrd skynyrd or pink floyd 

    idk if anyone can think of it let me know plz 

  8. Christopher Goyette

    This is absolutely beautiful.
