It’s Not Supposed to be This Hard (To Fall in Love)

Tell her how you feel
Tell her what you think
Tell her who you are
Tell her anything

Tell her what you know
Tell her that you bleed
Tell her that you care
Tell her anything

Won’t do you any good
if you keep it to yourself
so just let her know
and see what happens next

It’s not supposed to be this hard
To fall in love, to fall in love
It’s not supposed to be this hard
To fall in love, to fall in love

Tell her that you’re there
That you’ll never leave
Tell her that there’s hope
Tell her anything

Tell her that you’ll stay
Give her what she needs
Tell her that you’re hers
Tell her anything

It won’t do her any good
If she can’t understand
So open up your mouth
And let her breathe you in

It’s not supposed to be this hard
To fall in love, to fall in love
It’s not supposed to be this hard
To fall in love, to fall in love

Open up your mouth and show her
Open up your arms and hold her
Open up your heart and let her in

Open up your lips and kiss her
Tell her that you’re always with her
Let her know you’ll be there till the end

Cause it’s not supposed to be this hard
It’s not supposed to be this hard
To fall in love.

About Joshua Lodge

Josh will cheerfully admit that he averaged less than a dozen people a show when he first began playing San Diego coffee houses and clubs. But he garnered diehard fans in the process, sold a few thousand copies of his EP, Pocket Change, and picked up few awards along the way. After a traumatic family incident Josh retreated inward, and he ended up writing what would ultimately become his breakout debut, Raw. The album was true to its name and people noticed - Josh picked up two San Diego Music Awards for "Best Acoustic" and "Best Local Recording," opened for the likes of Zac Brown, Jason Mraz, and Matt Nathanson, and had enough money and momentum to tour the country a few times over. A few years after Raw, there was his third EP, Hope. Whereas Raw was a mostly acoustic, vulnerable affair, Hope was a celebration. Pleading and poignant, heartfelt and heavy hearted, it segued effortlessly from orchestral to alt-country, eventually landing him in the top 25 on the country charts. One of the hardest working indie singer/songwriters in Southern California, Josh spent much of the year with producer Mike Butler, gathering up some of the finest musicians in town, shaping his songs and sound further still for his album I Will Be There out now on Randm Records. From the joyous encouragement of “Just Give Me a Call”, to the simple sincerity of the ballad “Tennessee”, Josh’s songwriting skills are clear, his voice rings true and his goals remain the same as when he started - to keep making the best music he can, and to share it with all.
