HARD TO BE A SAINT
hard to be a saint '99
you don't have to hide yourself from me
you don't have to find someone to be
you don't have to show me who you are
where you're going or even where you came from
we never had a chance we never had a prayer
we just built this out of promises and thin air
pre-chorus and chorus:
all those times we had.
be them good or bad
they slip away before we know what we have.
and it's hard to be a saint
and look at you, you look so great
let's take sometime to get things straight.
it's hard to be a saint.
you don't have to say it's gonna be alright
some days you crawl into bed just to pretend it's night.
sometimes you give and sometimes you take.
and sometimes you hold me so tight i feel like i'm gonna break.
nobody's saying but it's what everybody knows
you think you're invisible, well baby it shows.\
it's hard to be a saint
i look at you and i can't see straight
i say it is you say it ain't
yeah, it's hard to be a saint
