lyrics

Sometimes people say things about you
That are so damn far from true
There will be those who’ll believe them
But those folks lose out on you

And it’s so hard to remember
Yes it’s so hard to follow through
You must love yourself strong and tender
Let the people that you love hold tight to you

I take a walk by the cathedral
My belly’s empty as my mind
I hardly think of him at all now
Except when people are unkind

And it’s so hard to remember
Yes it’s so hard to follow through
You must love yourself strong and tender
Let the people that you love hold tight to you
Let the people that you love hold tight…

I know I hurt him and I’m sorry
But goddamn, he cut me to the bone
He tells his friends a different story
Than when we were alone

The cannon sounds on the horizon
The cannonball falls where I lay
He’s left no space for me to walk on
No way that I can have my say

And it’s so hard to remember
Yes it’s so hard to follow through
You must love yourself strong and tender
Let the people that you love hold tight to you
Let the people that you love hold tight to you
