"HARD HEARTED WORLD"

Verse 1
Maybe he was gentle, maybe he was fun;
Maybe he promised to do his best to make it all work out.
Or maybe he was angry maybe he carried a gun;
After a long hard ride
He just stopped the car and pushed you out.
It's a hard-hearted world.

Verse 2
As the new life grew within you, everyone was aware
That you were nobody's little girl in pigtails any more.
This baby means so much to you, but they don't seem to care.
Even the high school wouldn't let you past the front door.
It's a hard-hearted world.

Refrain
-They don't give a damn about the jam you're in.
Their hearts are cold and faults are thick where love is thin.
From the spot you're in right now there is no easy way.
But if you Hold on to what you believe in,
I know you'll be thankful someday.

Chorus 1
Oh, don't give up that life that's in you,
Fight with all your strength and sinew.
If you can just hold on to the
Power that made that life within you,
He'll give you the strength to carry on in this
Hard-hearted world.

Verse 3
Early Monday morning you were looking for a job,
'Cause the welfare man didn't leave you
With an ounce of dignity.
[It's a hard-hearted world.]
And you found out firsthand before too long,
That an unborn child can't squeeze a drop of sympathy
From this hard-hearted world! --

Verse 4
Lookin at the options, it's hard to say what's worse.
Like bein' caught between the Devil
And a sea of shame and woe.
And those mixed-up emotions make life seem like a curse,
But the way they say is easy is the roughest way to go
In this hard-hearted world.--

Refrain
-They don't give a damn about the jam you're in.
Their hearts are cold and faults are thick
Where love is thin.
From the spot you're in right now there is no easy way.
But if you hold on to what you believe in,
I know you'll be thankful someday! Oh ...

Chorus 2
Don't give up that life that's in you,
Fight with all your strength and sinew.
If you can just hold on to the
Power that made that life within you,
He'll give you the strength to carry on
In this hard-hearted world.

[Repeat Chorus 2]
