Story

If you have an actual CD, this is a "hidden" track; that is, not listed on the cover. I made this recording in my living room the morning I wrote it, just as a way to remember it. My daughter Dana had just gone back to college in Boston. I was going to re-record it, but something about this performance...I didn't think I could do it any better, so I included it the way it was.

Lyrics

Hard To Think of You (2:16)

--Patterson Barrett ©2017 (BMI) Criminal Tunes

 

It’s hard to think of you so far away

When there’s nothing I can do to keep you warm

Having you near all of these years

Now here’s a place that’s hard for me to stay

 

You had to change

I know the rules

Life’s a hard game, win or lose

 

I can see you now

Your smile lights up the room

Our time was up

You had to leave us all too soon

 

Now it’s hard to think of you so far away

When there’s nothing I can do to keep you safe

Having you near all of these years

Now here’s a place that’s hard for me to stay

It’s hard to think of you so far away
