Rock and a Hard Place




Between a rock and hard place
Whether I like it or not I’m digging my grave
Friends ask me why I choose to stay
Between a rock and a hard place

I ain’t getting younger now I’m fading like a setting sun
I ain’t strong like I was when I was young
But for all the things I’ve lost there are a few I’ve gained
Most came between a rock and a hard place

Maybe I want to stare death in the face
Pound my chest and scream I ain’t afraid
Truth is I’m beaten down and broken from all the weight
Pushing me to trade my guilt for grace

I ain’t getting younger now I’m fading like a setting sun
I ain’t strong like I was when I was young
But for all the things I’ve lost there are a few I’ve gained
Most came between a rock and a hard place

So when you lay me down to rest in peace
Set my tombstone flat on top of my grave
So forever my body will lay between
A rock and a hard place

I ain’t getting younger now I’m fading like a setting sun
I ain’t strong like I was when I was young
But for all the things I’ve lost there are a few I’ve gained
Most came between a rock and a hard place
