Default Hard Earned Love

HARD EARNED LOVE

Jim Colyer

I've come across the desert in the burning sun
I've been the lonely one
My heart's beating rhythm
My soul's on fire tonight
I got 'em standing in line
I can have my choice
But you're the one I'm thinking of
I'm really, really ready
I'm ready for some Hard Earned Love

Been working all week just to earn my pay
Living for Saturday
Another Friday night
Stepping out with a man like you
I'll wear my shortest skirt
My high heel shoes
Pick me up at 8
I'm really, really ready
I'm ready for some Hard Earned Love

Drinking, dancing, making the rounds
Every honky tonk in town
I can't wait til you take me home
And we're all alone

solo

I've been too long on that assembly line
I just wanna let go
My heart's beating rhythm
My soul's on fire tonight
I got 'em standing in line
I can have my choice
But you're the one I'm thinking of
I'm really really ready
I'm ready for some Hard Earned Love
I'm really really ready
I'm ready for some Hard Earned Love
I'm ready

Hi, Jim!
Your lyrics work very well with Kymberly's strong, warm voice and the country genre of the song, which I listened to via the link in your contact information.

Three parts of your lyrics that I especially like are the lines that ground the song in a particular place and situation, because they give me more of the background behind the story created in the song:

Quote:

Quote:

Quote:

These lines help me picture the hardworking, working-class woman for whom going out dancing with her beau on Saturday is the highlight of a long, tiring week, which makes the title "Hard Earned Love" very appropriate.
