Hard To Explain
Cowboy Junkies Lyrics

If it ain't one thing
I tell you it's always another
I wonder why
I started treating you like a step-brother

Love is hard to explain
I know my loss is someone else's gain

Sometime's love is like a bitter pill
But we just have to take it like it is
Sometimes life is the sweetest thing
and sometimes it's just naked pain

Oh, it's so hard to explain
I know my loss is someone else's gain

My troubles started when I found you
But that's when I (wrapped?) my world around you
And now my living ain't so easy
I thought that's what a woman was supposed to do

You see, it's so hard to explain
I know my loss is someone else's gain

I went to see my doctor
'Cause I thought I had a hole in my heart
but he said "Girl, you're just wasting my time
Because some man messed up,
went and messed up your mind"

It's so hard to explain
I know my loss is someone else's gain

Oh, love it's so hard to explain
It'll make you forget your name
It'll turn you upside down
It'll make you wish that you'd never been found

This was our wedding song. We saw the Cowboy Junkies at the state theater in Minneapolis. During intermission I had slipped our wedding program onto the stage. As the concert ended I noticed one f the band me,bears take the invitation back stage then Margo came out with it in her hands and did an encore they put the spot light on us and we danced as she sang for us.
A memory for all times. After the concert we hung out with the band for a while, I will never forget it.

She could sing her ABC's and sound sexy and beautiful

BB King (the thrill is gone) on Prozac.


Sometimes you want to listen to a song that helps you feel pain, and tells you it's ok... this is that song


Great track from a great album. My personal taste.. the Pale Sun, Crescent Moon album stands far apart from the others. I mean, all the albums are good.. don't get me wrong.. but to me this is their zenith.
