A Way With Words

We thought it might be nice to share some of the lyrics from this song that hit us the hardest and we hope ‘The Hardest Part’ brings you some comfort the way it did for us.

“I guess the hardest part of getting old is that some people that you love don’t”

Sometimes it’s the simplest phrases that hit you the hardest. When it comes to losing a loved one, that moment of realizing that they’re gone and that you’re going to move forward through your life without them can be hard and that’s what this line encapsulates so well.

“My mom’s friends with your mother/Catching up is never gonna be the same”

Moving on from loss means that everything is different. The relationships and conversations are always going to be different and that person’s presence is always going to be felt differently. It doesn’t necessarily mean it’ll be bad, but it’s definitely hard and it can be something you find yourself thinking about.

“I wish I would’ve tried harder to stay in touch/I thought we had more time/too busy growing up”

The nature of life is that we always wish we would’ve done more, especially in a case like this. When you lose someone, you might find yourself slipping into thoughts about sending that message or telling them that one last thing or just catching up more. We’re in no way professionals when it comes to grief but from our own experiences, we’ve found that these thoughts are normal. We’re all only human after all.
