It's a Hard World

Supertramp

I live in a vacuum, no air
I'm stuck in a back room, somewhere
But it don't bother me anyway 'cos I know
I'm gonna get out soon, I got places to go
There's a big world waiting for me
I just need a break, someone to believe
But right now I'm just tryin' to survive
Livin' rough, shackin' up, hangin' tough, shapin' up

Get the picture, get the scene I paint for you
Yeah, but it's worth it, all the pain I'm goin' thru
Beat the sidewalk, hear the fast talk, everyday
I don't worry 'cos I know I'm on my way

The view from my window, it ain't too good
Should be some mail for me soon from Hollywood
When the phone rings, could be big things, anytime
Operator is there something wrong with this line

Rejections, I've had a few
Happens to the best, that ain't nothin' new
Still I keep on swingin' away
S'gonna be a breakthrough any day

Keep hanging in there, that's my philosophy
And soon I'll find my big chance, yeah just you wait and see
Some make it fast, but they just come and go
Me, I'm built to last that's one thing I know

It's a hard world
It's a hard world
It's a hard world
It's a hard world

It's a hard world
It's a hard world
It's a hard world
It's a hard world

It's a hard world
It's a hard world
It's a hard world
It's a hard world

Those straight life people, they don't understand
Yeah they just want it all laid out and planned
Me, I'm not like them, I do things my own way
And I know I'll get that breakthrough anyday

Life in the city, can get you down
There's a million guys out there all snooping around
You gotta think you're the best, beat out all the rest
And fight your way up to the top of the town

There's a big world waiting for me
I just need a break, someone to believe
But right now I'm just tryin' to survive
I know I'm gonna get there, dead or alive

Dead or alive
I know I'm gonna there
Oh, I know I will
I'm going to reach for the moon
And all the stars too
I want the universe
I want all the planets
I want everything
I need a big house, I need a big car
I'm gonna get it
It's just a matter of time
