The Hardest Word, #SongLyricSunday

“It’s sad, so sad, so sad. It’s a sad sad situation.”

—Elton John, “Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word”

It’s one of the sadder parts of life and love.

Song Lyric Sunday

Elton John sings about it well.

Sorry really is a hard word to say, for some reason, and I wish I didn’t need to say that, admit such a thing.

***

What have I got to do to make you love me
What have I got to do to make you care
What do I do when lightning strikes me
And I wake to find that you’re not there
What do I do to make you want me
What have I got to do to be heard
What do I say when it’s all over And sorry seems to be the hardest word

It’s sad, so sad It’s a sad, sad situation And it’s getting more and more absurd
It’s sad, so sad Why can’t we talk it over Oh it seems to me That sorry seems to be the hardest word

What do I do to make you love me
What have I got to do to be heard
What do I do when lightning strikes me
What have I got to do What have I got to do
When sorry seems to be the hardest word

LYRICS

***

So many times, I become judgmental, when I hear of the end of something, a relationship, love, a life together. An apology isn’t enough or comes too late. It is too late if it was avoided for so long.

Even when it comes to leaders who are human like the rest of us, who have big and influential jobs, it makes it even more important that a good leader knows when and how to apologize.

If only…just say it…like it will be so uncomfortable, painful, such an impossible word to say. Some say it too easily, which may mean there is very little sincerity behind the word.

We make children say it. We make my nephew say it. Us adults have a hard enough time, like the word tastes highly bitter on our tongues.

Forever, I wonder…why?
