This is one of my favorite songs I've ever written. The lyrics are personal yet universally relate able. Hard To Stay In Love is a coming of age song that acknowledges the difficulties of love as well as the guilt and unintended consequences of failed love. It ends in a promise. It is a melodic song that is more true than sad. This recording was done with an old stand up piano and has a bit of a haunting feel rather than the more aggressive version that i currently perform with the band.
