Musician (Its Not An Easy Life) – 竹内まりや

The rent’s due tomorrow
Haven’t got a penny to my name
I’m trying to build me a lifetime
Think I better start a new frame

And I think I’m learnin’ first hand
About what it’s like to be
To be a musician
And I can see
It’s not an easy life
It’s not an easy life to live

Guess that I chose the hard road
No use wonderin’ why
I had hopes I would make it
Must have had my hopes up too high

And I think I’m learnin’ first hand
About what it’s like to be
To be a musician
And I can see
It’s not an easy life
It’s not an easy life to live

And I keep on smilin’
Ooooh smilin’
Smilin’ to hide the pain
Inside I’m cryin’
Ooooh cryin’
And it’s hard
It’s hard to explain

And I think I’m learnin’ first hand
About what it’s like to be
To be a musician
And I can see
It’s not an easy life
It’s not an easy life to live
It’s not an easy life
It’s not an easy life to live
It’s not an easy life
It’s not an easy life
