Work Hard, Love Hard

With hard work being the love language we were taught as kids, this release by Santangelo especially (pardon the pun) strikes a chord.

My viewpoint on love is extremely skeptical, but I will say this- if it does happen to me (and I hope everyone is able to prove me wrong), I’ll know it to be true because the affection that person has for me will be characterized with the hard work I had a privilege of witnessing in my parents’ relationships with one another growing up.



Now Playing: Cave In by Santangelo


When I caved in under this pressure, under impression
Baby, you took my breath out of my lungs
and under my wings and you saved me
And I made it a long way, long way
And baby, I made it a long way, long way
Baby
Wake up every morning tryina tell myself it gets better
Oh, yes sir, yes sir
I’ve been told that if I do this shit right I’ma get my bread
Keep my head up
Yes sir, chasing moments, wasted
Tryina get my pace in,
Perfect every time I take this amazing and fall asleep
At least I used to thought I fit in

Sharpen my pigment, I
Uuh uuh, uuh uuh uuh
Uuh uuh, uuh uuh uuh
And she’s been on my mind
For the longest, longest time
And she’s been on my mind
For the longest, longest time
And she’s been on my mind
For the longest, longest time
And she’s been on my mind mind mind mind

Mama told me I would be the best she knew
Yes, she knew it
Told me everything I know about hard work
I remember seeing her God doing, God doing
Mama don’t, mama don’t cry
Mama don’t, it’s no use, you saved me
Mama don’t, mama don’t cry
Mama don’t, just know you saved me
And she’s been on my mind
For the longest, longest time
And she’s been on my mind
For the longest, longest time
And she’s been on my mind
For the longest, longest time
And she’s been on my mind mind mind mind

Uuh uuh, uuh uuh uuh
Uuh uuh, uuh uuh uuh
She’s been, she’s been, she’s been
She’s been, she’s been, she’s been
She she she she she
She’s been, she’s been, she’s been
She’s been, she’s been, she’s been

When I caved in under this pressure, under impression
Baby, you took my breath out of my lungs
and under my wings and you saved me
And I made it a long way, long way
And baby, I made it a long way, long way
Baby
