Lyric of the day

Tell me why don't we try
not to break our hearts and make it so hard?
Tell me why don't we try
not to break our hearts and make it so hard for ourselves?
Not to break our hearts and make it so hard for ourselves?
We make it so hard for ourselves
We make it so hard
so hard
We make it so hard
