Hard Part:
(David Wilcox and John Whalen)

I see the look that's in your eyes
That says 'I must keep most of me inside
'Cause you'd never love me if I didn't hide
the secrets of my heart


Well I'm not here for the surface stuff
I just get bored with all that fluff
So show me the edges even if it's rough
And let the real love start


You think your shame and deep disgrace
Are more than I can bear
But you can go to your darkest place
I will meet you there


And I'm strong enough to take it
And I know what you've been through
You've got a whole heart
Give me the hard part
I can love that too


You look at me with some surprise
And I see the doubt that's in your eyes
Like something deep inside you cries
With a hunger to be known
Like a tiger born in a city zoo
There's been no place for what's inside of you
You try to live like the others do
And it leaves you so alone


I know you think that the heat of your pain
Is more than I can stand
Burn it all in one big flame
And I will hold it in my hand


I'm strong enough to take it
And I know what you've been through
You've got a whole heart
Give me the hard part
I can love that too


Now your eyes well up with tears
As desire mixes with you fears
After so many wounded years
Can you long for what you've missed
You want a cool breeze to dance with your flame
A long lost lover who knows your true name
A secret garden beyond this shame
And it all comes down to this




You think your drowning hope will die
In a sea without a shore
But I can drink that ocean dry
And still come back for more


I'm strong enough to take it
And I know what you've been through
You've got a whole heart
Give me the hard part
I can love that too


I'm strong enough to take it
And I know what you've been through
You've got a whole heart
Give me the hard part
I can love that too


You've got a whole heart
Give me the hard part
I can love that too
