The Hard Way

lyrics

She took the hard way
headed for the city
on the sidewalk just trying to be brave
she had never seen a live one
burning with the taste
of a brighter day
as she walked through
the rivers of her thoughts she was
holding on to love
she kept her eyes up
walking like a soldier
through the desert
through the desert

you'll never take me
you'll never break me
you'll never take my heart
you'll never change me

she took the hard way
falling from the sky like she was
holding on to yesterday
but when the leaves change
everything still
remains the same

you'll never take me
you'll never break me
you'll never take my heart
we're on the same side
you live a good life
you'll never change my mind

you'll never take my heart
if it's already out
asleep in the stars
if you know what you want
and you know who you are
then they can't take your heart

you'll never take me
you'll never break me
you'll never take my heart
you'll never change me

about

Krister Axel Ashland, Oregon

I started playing piano in White Plains, New York because our black upright piano fascinated me and my sisters hated their piano lessons. That was in the 80's and I have never stopped writing songs. I write love songs and political songs but mostly love songs.

I play a lot of acoustic guitar, some electric, and different kinds of piano plus accordions and harmoniums and other assorted weird shit.
