"New Hard Times" lyrics

New Hard Times

Ask any mirror
Is there no escape
He will show you lines
That time has etched into your face
And all around the edges
Life is turning gray
And you can no longer
Turn your head the other way

And the new hard times are here
And the new hard times are here

When eating comes too easy
Nothing makes you think
There's too much time to sun yourself
And too much wine to drink

And now there's nothing left to help
Maintain your failing pride
You hunger for the older days
When rich men satisfied

And the new hard times are here
And the new hard times are here

In the twilight years life
Takes a bend
And you start to view it
From the other end
You laughed a lot
And had your fun
Now you find
There's so much left undone

And ashes to ashes
Dust to dust
In your lifetime that's the only
Rule you've come to trust
And waiting round the corner
To put his arms around you
Death comes a-courting
And you don't know what to do

And the new hard times are here
And the new hard times are here
And the new hard times are here
And the new hard times are here
