Barns Courtney – Hard To Be Alone Lyrics

Hard To Be Alone By Barns Courtney

I could see the city
Written in your face
Freckles spread like constellations all over the place
Darling I walked you to the station
Shooting with my heart on my sleeve
Now I’m staring at your photograph and hoping you ain’t made a fool of me

So if you’re struggling to go to sleep tonight
When you’re on your own beneath the lonely lights
Oh darling if I ever cross your mind
Won’t you let me know
Oh it’s hard
Oh it’s hard to be alone
Oh it’s hard
Oh it’s hard
To be alone

Moved to the big city and called it home
Oh what a crowded place to live alone
She was a choir girl when we were young
What have we done
What have we done

So if you’re struggling to go to sleep tonight
When you’re on your own beneath the lonely lights
Oh darling if I ever cross your mind
Won’t you let me know
Oh it’s hard
Oh it’s hard to be alone
Oh it’s hard
Oh it’s hard
To be alone
