Quotes about easier said than done

Byron

Canto the Fourth

I
Nothing so difficult as a beginning
In poesy, unless perhaps the end;
For oftentimes when Pegasus seems winning
The race, he sprains a wing, and down we tend,
Like Lucifer when hurl'd from heaven for sinning;
Our sin the same, and hard as his to mend,
Being pride, which leads the mind to soar too far,
Till our own weakness shows us what we are.

II
But Time, which brings all beings to their level,
And sharp Adversity, will teach at last
Man, -- and, as we would hope, -- perhaps the devil,
That neither of their intellects are vast:
While youth's hot wishes in our red veins revel,
We know not this -- the blood flows on too fast;
But as the torrent widens towards the ocean,
We ponder deeply on each past emotion.

Until It Happens To You

Jeff cook/teddy gentry/ronnie rogers/greg fowler, 3:43
I worry all day and I cant go to sleep at night
Thinking about baby and wondering whos holding her tight tonight
People say Ive been a fool too long, too long
All my friends still ask me why I keep hanging on and on
Chorus:
And I say
Youll never know until it happens to you
Youll never know all that Im going through
Love aint something that flies away
Somebody goes but the feeling stays
And youll never know until it happens to you
Saturdays rollin and everybodys rockin but me
I should go to town but I dont want no company, no, no, no
Friends say I should be out having fun with someone
I know its true but if they only knew its easier said than done
Oh yeah
Repeat chorus
Bridge
Friends say Ive been a fool too long, much too long

Carnival Game

It was a masquerade at Mardi Gras
That was the only trip that I recall
Everytime I turned around at all
There was you
Some days are easier said than done
Always expecting something's wrong
I'd rather live alone than drag this on
Take your time- please lay your hands on me
Don't wanna be alone, oh no
A mask behind the face and then you're gone
Oh,yeah- comes a time when you're better off alone
You're on your own
I've got a kaleidoscope of memories
Visions of you locked up inside of me
Can't you see
We once collided like a broken wheel
So undecided what was real
Maybe a crash somehow has sex appeal
Whatever turns you on
Take your time- please lay your hands on me

A Bad Goodbye

Ive been bound to leave you, weve known that for awhile
Im sure its something I cant do if I cant leave you with a smile
I dont know how far Ill have to go til Im sure those eyes wont cry
And in my mind Ive left enough to know that I cant leave you
With a bad goodbyegoodbye, easier said than done
Goodbye, theres no good when youre the one
Whose goodbye you swore would never come
And in my goodbye youre finding none
Im still bound to leave you, I surely dont know how
My heart wont let me put you through
What my mind says should happen now
I dont know where well go from here, there may be no way to fly
And the cloud Im in just makes it all too clear that I cant leave you
With a bad goodbye
Repeat chorus
How can we be so far between where we are and one more try
And any way I look, Ive only seen that I cant leave you
With a bad goodbye

Old Habits Die Hard

(graham lyle / terry britten)
Its my decision
You look my way
With innocent expression
Just as if to say
It would be easy
The mood is right
Forget for just one moment
Who we are tonight
I start
To weaken the musics strong
My conscience speaks, I know its wrong
Give it up
Remember what you said
This kind of loving doesnt happen everyday
Give it up
Thats the way it starts
Discover old habits die hard
Temptation makes a fool out of us all
I made my mind up

Graded On A Curve

It's a waste of time
It's a race that can't be won
Call the whole thing off
Well that's easier said than done
And I try to shut it out
And I think I've figured out
That it makes no sense to compare what I've done
So what do I do now that I'm alone?
I've been building up and tearing down
and looking for what never can be found
So what do I do now that I'm alone?
God I tried so hard to get here
but still I'm averaged out
Graded on a curve
Put the blinders on and believe in someone else
You're not what they want that's exactly what they sell
And it's all been preordained but it's never quite the same
Once you've figured out that it makes no sense
And I don't care if I'm the one who makes mistakes
And I don't care how long this is going to take

So Tired

Scent on a postcard
A memory left behind
Warm hand, cool look but no time...
Winsome lose some
Hung up on old flame
My heart depends on fire
So who am I to make demands on love?
...relax and walk on by
So tired
So tired
Beaten like a drum
So tired
Living life alone
So tired
Beaten like a drum
Kiss the right faces
And tap the party line
Short measure of cheap skate pleasure
Easier said than done
Sip the night water

I Believe

Michael Kiske)
Give me two strong arms to fight my enemies
Give me two strong eyes to see the truth
Give me two strong legs I think I have to run
And fill my heart with faith that I wont lose
I dont wanna lose
Give me one real love that I dont freeze out there
Make me feel your presence in the night
Give me one strong heart that tells me when I lie
And take my soul so I wont have to hide
I dont wanna hide
Its so cold deep down here
I know we had to fall
Souls are dying everywhere
But whatever I do I believe ...
(Solo)
Therell be no reason to live
Without you giving me light
There is so much that you give
Your love is shining so bright

Who's Right, Who's Wrong

Who's Right Who's Wrong
Kenny Loggins
(This Is It)
I've grown tired of fighting
Whether you're right or wrong
Whether I'm weak or strong in your eyes
'Cause this is a lonely feeling
Watching you turn away
Why does it have to be this way?
On and on tonight
You've made a point of being right
Making this a game instead of love
You should know
Where this goes.
Someone's heart will surely be broken
Before too long
If we keep on playing this game
Of right or wrong
CHORUS
Who's Right, Who's Wrong
