No One Said It Was Easy - John Ralston

No I never got along with life.
And I never had the stomach for a suicide.
But I've got subtle ways to shorten my days.
Do whatever it takes to get me by.

No one said that this was easy.
No one handed you a free pass for the ride.
No said that this was easy.
Keep your chin up maybe things will play out right
In the game of life.

There was a time when I believed in love.
But now I know it's kid fairy tale stuff.
Once upon a time for me.
Like a Holy Sacrament to receive.
But cancer man it sure cured my belief.

No one said that this was easy.
No one handed you a free pass for the ride.
No said that this was easy.
Keep your chin up maybe things will play out right
In the game of life.

It's like getting pulled over by the blue lights.
Commit the crime so then you hear your rights.
And they put you away and you wait for the day;
For mercy, grace, or luck to look your way.

You sit between four prison walls
And you listen to the guards walk down the halls.
You were sentenced to life from the day that you were born.
You'll be guilty long past the day you die.

No one said that this was easy.
No one handed you a free pass for the ride.
No said that this was easy.
Keep your chin up maybe things will play out right
In the game of life
