Lyrics

THE SADDEST THING THAT I'VE EVER HEARD

Tried so hard
But no one ever let you put a foot inside the door
Tried to love
But no one ever thought that you could offer them enough

Now you're standing there with nowhere to turn
Well that's the saddest thing that I've ever heard
Hold on man it's going to get better somehow

Want so much
So little offered and so little explained
Just to be loved
To have a purpose with more power than the pain

Now you're standing there
Alone in the world
Well that's the saddest thing that I've ever heard
Hold on man it's just got to get better somehow

Stand your ground in a world that is trying to break you down
Just hold on now. Just hold on now.

Want so much, so little offered and so little explained
Just to be loved, to have a purpose with more power than the pain

Now you're standing all alone in the world
Well that's the saddest thing that I've ever heard
You’ve got to hold on now. You’ve got to hold on now.
