Isn't It Hard

Story Behind The Song

A reflection on life and the values people develop throughout the years. This song is a snapshot of the human experience told in three verses - belief/faith, location/the concept of "home," and attitude/pettiness.

Song Description

Influenced by The Wallflowers, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, and The Beatles, this alternative rock throwback presents a snapshot of the human experience. Cleverly told in three poetic verses, "Isn't It Hard" urges the listener to reflect upon their life's events and the lens through which they view them. With an emphasis on electric guitar riffs and smooth Hammond organ, this retro-inspired song pleases fans of classic and modern rock.

Isn't it hard
to believe in anything
Isn't it hard
when there's so many things to believe in
I ain't searching
till I'm hurting
without no meaning
isn't it hard to believe in anything

Is it enough
to belong to any place
Is it enough
when they say that your home's where your heart is
I ain't fearin'
When I'm nearin'
My destination
Is it enough to belong to anyplace

Any place
Woo hoo
Any thing

Isn't it fine
Not to mind them petty things
Isn't it fine
When your own is a mind to run free in
Ain't enough to
Break my gait and
Leave this soul needin'
Isn't it fine not to mind them petty things

Petty things
Woo hoo
Ain't it fine
