Hard to hide

Verse 1
When I was young I never thought about tomorrow
I never looked any further than today
My life was like a book I'd only borrowed
And now the time had come for me to turn the page

Verse 2
So I left home heading for the southern border
Thought I'd find a new beginning to my life
In Mexico I loved the endless summer
And I loved the man who took me for his wife

But he took me for far more than just his lade
And before too long I found my way back home
And there were nights I would cry just like a baby
Most nights I was glad to be alone

And it's hard to hide the tears I cry
It's hard to keep them all inside
Though I've learned to take it all in stride
It's hard to hide the hurt I feel inside

Verse 2
Though years have passed I'm still not standing steady
I didn't know before but now I've seen
That when you move before you're really ready
You wind up chasing someone else's dream

And hard times don't think that I've not known some
Because I hide my sorrow with a smile
Alone in bed at night I get so lonesome
I like to hold you beside me for awhile
