Don't Be Hard On Me

from by Miriam Jones

/
  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    A concise collection of poignant short stories in song form, narratives brought perfectly to life through a creative partnership with Simon Edwards (Fairground Attraction, Billy Bragg, David Gray). The album contains ten four-minute tales from the school of Anne Tyler and Raymond Carver, delivered with a grit and warmth that puts Jones firmly in the Bonnie Raitt and Joan Osborne class of tough but soulful exponents of North American roots music.

lyrics

Don’t Be Hard On Me

This day is laying heavy on me
It won't let me from our bed
You seize your reasons and go strongly
I will lie still a while yet

I mark my heart in its persistence
Faithful & fierce but I don't move
Power for the hours that I am gifted
But I won't be giving much to you like I want to

But please don't be hard on me
Reach out your arms for me, oh baby, please

I took a turn around the rooms here
I may have moved some things about
I willed some words for that new tune dear
They were not ready to come out
For all my youth I am unable to rouse the rigour in my bones
I know I said I would be faithful
And you won't be proud of me I know
I’m ashamed so
