Pale Waves – The Hard Way Lyrics

Pale Waves The Hard Way Lyrics

We were just strangers
Didn’t know your name but
I could tell you were good at hiding your pain
The ones you kept closest
Didn’t even notice
But I saw your heartache yet I stayed away

And lately it’s haunting me I didn’t protect you
Your skin was still thickening but I just assumed

That you were okay
But I learnt the hard way
Thought it wasn’t my place
But I learnt the hard way

You left us too soon
Such pain they put you through
Only felt safe in your room
Needed someone to turn to
A delicate flower
They took all power
And got in your head before you could even bloom

But lately it’s haunting me I didn’t protect you
Your skin was still thickening but I just assumed

That you were okay
But I learnt the hard way
Thought it wasn’t my place
But I learnt the hard way

Pretending everything’s ok
I should’ve taken on your weight
Then I wouldn’t have to learn the hard way
And why does someone have to lose?
And why did that have to be you?
Wish I didn’t have to learn the hard way
