lyrics

It's so hard to be
It's so hard to be
It's so hard to be the one
Who's always fallin' down
Always fallin' down

And it's so hard to be
So hard to be the tree
So hard to be the falling tree that
Never makes a sound
Never makes a sound

But I keep on pushin' through
Though I couldn't tell you why
Like that stupid ant
With the rubber tree plant
I guess my hopes are high

It's so hard to be
It's so hard to be
It's so hard to be the one who
Keeps the wolves at bay
Keeps the wolves at bay

And it's so hard to be
It's so hard to be
It's so hard to be the one who
Rarely gets a say
Rarely gets a say

But I keep on pushin' through
Though I couldn't tell you why
Like that stupid ram
Rammin' into that dam
I guess my hopes are high

And if you put my hope
Under a microscope
You'd see a thousand tiny little hopes
Fighting to survive
And it's up to only me
It's up to only me
To keep them alive
To keep them alive

It's so hard to be
So very hard to be
Yeah, it's so hard to be
So very hard to be
It's so hard to be
It's so hard to be
Me

But I do it all for you
With my head held to the sky
It's just like stupid me
To never concede
I guess my hopes are high
I guess my hopes are high
