It’s Harder Than It Looks

While growing up I felt my parents raised us effortlessly
Momma stayed home while Dad worked at the University
And it all seemed so easy, that it would be a breeze
I thought it would come naturally & we’d make great memories

But then I tried as a teenager, tried too hard, now I know
I was chasing girls all the time, man I was rarin’ to go
And it was many years later when she and I finally met
Someone finally took the gamble, I was thinking I was all set

But it’s harder than it looks
You’ve gotta put in a hundred and ten percent
You can’t be thinkin’ of the mistakes from your past
And about where all that precious time went
You’ve gotta be true to what you promised
You’ve gotta be a good man through and through
It’s harder than it looks
To pull that hero outta you

Our house tends to be messy, we’re a two-income family
Our kids keep us very busy, not much time we have is free
We don’t date on the weekends, we don’t have privacy
But we both got what we wanted, this ongoing mystery

It’s harder than it looks
We’ve gotta put in a hundred and ten percent
We can’t be dreamin’ about the old days now
Or about where all that money went
Our kids are counting on us to make good choices
To pay it forward to them while we’re still here
It may be harder than it looked back then
But it’s the time of our lives year after year

It may be harder than it looked back then
But it’s the time of our lives year after year.
