Lyrics
Maybe you got something to say
You got a new thing you want me to try
First you lure me to a cure and
bait a hook I'm not sure I'm ready to try

Maybe there is a better way
Im sure I could save a dime
and I'm sure it could be easier on me
but the time I'm wastin's mine
I pick the hard way every time

Well I know you intent to sell me
In subtle ways you tell me I'm not quite right
Try now buy now and surrender
some of your hard earned legal tender
and you'll fit in fine

Maybe there is a better way
Im sure I could save a dime
and I'm sure it could be easier on me
but the time I'm wastin's mine
I pick the hard way every time

Well the easy way aint so easy
And a short cutll get you every time
Oh the long way is slow and steady
But it gets you there every time.

Thank you and no you didn't close me
But you more than showed me what it might be like
but finding the key to my coffers
takes more than pictures and offers
You gotta make it right

Maybe there is a better way
Im sure I could save a dime
and I'm sure it could be easier on me
but the time I'm wastin's mine
I pick the hard way every time

solid construction
The production values are really well done here with some great instrumentation. Very nice. Musically and lyrically, I felt that the song failed to hook me as a listener and take me along willingly. There isn't enough happening here, lyrically, to compel me to listen. The 2nd (and 3rd) verse really doesn't add anything new to the song - it's pretty much "more of the same thing" as stated in the 1st verse.

"Hard Way Every Time" was a minor hit for Jim Croce back in the '70's .... probably safe to re-use that title/concept given the amount of time that has passed, but if you listen to his song you will see that the lyrics truly express the struggles of someone choosing "the hard way every time" where I don't see that here.

Sung very nicely, has a '60's folk feel to it (imho).

Good job!
