Life Is Hard​/​He's Around

by Halfrican

  • Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    Halfrican's debut AA single 'Life Is Hard'/'He's Around' is available on 7" vinyl via El Rancho Records.

    "Ever put a curse on someone to steal their girl? Well Halfrican did, and they wrote this song about it...."

    'Life Is Hard' is the catchy noise pop nugget, that makes you want to punch the air like a drunken cheerleader, and throw your body around with reckless abandon, while the universally unambiguous lyrics and chorus "woh-woh-woh, life is hard..." unite men and women, young and old to wail along in uncontrolled harmony. When the guitars simultaneously ascend and descend into a dizzying crescendo and the whole track races to an end at 2:17, you feel a sense of life affirmation and an immediate reaction to play the damn thing again!

Track Name: Life Is Hard
People talkin' about how I have hexed a man,
So controversial,
And now soon he is sure to die,
Will I regret what I've done,
When I watch his body burn?

Life Is Hard

Forbidden fruit never tasted so good,
Perfect to touch,
Touching you is like touching stars and moons,
And we'll leave like comets,

Life is hard.
Track Name: He's Around
I tell you all the time,
He's always up ahead,
But you don't mind,
And when you're on your own,
You think about him constantly,

Now he's got you in his sight,
He'll attack from below and from above,
And make you hate all the girls you used to love,
Things gonna change now he's around,
It's not right, doesn't matter if you fight,
He'll make you hate all the chicks you used to like,
Things gonna change now he's around,

Things gonna change now he's around,
Things gonna change now that he is around.
