Bitter Harvest
© 2007 Holly Leer/HollyHawk Music BMI

She was just a wild child,
Growing up on the farm.
Always testing the limits,
Never meaning no harm.

Mother never seemed to understand her
She always found a way to bring her down
She tried and tried and tried to make her happy
All she ever got was a frown.

It’s a bitter harvest. Now the sun has gone.
It’s a bitter harvest. But we try to carry on.
It’s a bitter harvest. Now you finally know,
It’s a bitter harvest. The thorns of love will always grow.

Living in a small town,
Nowhere to hide, nowhere to run.
Everyone knows all your ups and downs,
Judging eyes watch you come undone.

She couldn’t find a reason to forgive her.
These were the seeds that she had sown.
And when she reached her final judgment,
Her true colors became known.

It’s a bitter harvest. Now the sun has gone.
It’s a bitter harvest. But we try to carry on.
It’s a bitter harvest. Now you finally know
It’s a bitter harvest. The thorns of love will always grow.

Despite her faults we had to love her,
And it’s sad to see her gone.
But she never granted her acceptance,
And now the hurt continues on.
On and on and on and on….

It’s a bitter harvest. Now the sun has gone.
It’s a bitter harvest. But we try to carry on.
It’s a bitter harvest. Now you finally know,
It’s a bitter harvest. The thorns of love will always grow.

Why’d you have to go and make me cry? Was your love just all a lie?
Did you want to make me feel this pain when you gave me all this hurt and all this shame?
You abandoned me and left me all alone and made me face the world all on my own.
Why’d you have to go and make me cry? Was your love just all a lie?
