A Hard Act To Follow (c) C.P. Hurowitz

(Verse 1)
Every time I take two steps forward
Memories of you take over my mind
Now there’s a girl combing hair in my mirror
When she’s lying here she’s wasting her time

Cos when I close my eyes I’ll see you
She smiles and looks so pretty
But I cannot feel a thing

(CHORUS)
You’re a hard act to follow
You set the bar way too high
It’s not like I want to drown in my sorrow
You are just one of a kind

(Verse 2)
It never should be like a competition
There are no medals out there for being the best
Talk to a girl lying on my pillow
There are things I know I'd never confess

It’s not that I don’t like the girl who's here
She has your sense of humor
Why does it feel so wrong?

(Chorus)

(Bridge)
In fantasies and dreams I go back in time
And change the way that I treated you
I know I'll never get a second chance
OK I blew it, I know I did
You know I blew it, I guess that's the way it is

(Chorus Breakdown)
You’re a hard act to follow
You set the bar way too high
It’s not like I want to drown in my sorrow

You are just one of a kind
You are just one of a kind
