It's Hard To Imagine
on: December 13, 2020, 10:35:36
Hey all,
I wrote this a few years back as a response to John Lennon's "Imagine". I had in mind that I would record on the 8th of this month, remembering the 40th year after he was shot.

https://garyhynes.bandcamp.com/track/its-hard-to-imagine

It's hard to imagine a world without pain.
It's hard to imagine the sufferings end.
It's hard to imagine your liberation.
But it's coming as sure as the rain.

It's hard to imagine a world without greed.
It's hard to imagine the vision we need.
It's hard to imagine when everyone's free.
But it's coming as sure as the sea.

It's hard to imagine the silence within.
It's hard to imagine freedom from sin.
It's hard to imagine the outside as in.
But it's coming as sure as the wind.

It's hard to imagine from darkness to light.
It's hard to imagine, no suicide.
It's hard to imagine, it will be alright.
But it's coming as sure as they night.

And I got my whole life to make it alright,
I got the rest of the day to find my way.
I got the whole world from which I can learn.
My thoughts create reality, and I think it's going to be okay.

It's hard to imagine a world without cunts.
It's hard to imagine the damage undone.
It's hard to imagine living as one.
But it's coming as sure as the sun.

It's hard to imagine with the way things are now.
It's hard to imagine that things will work out.
It's hard to imagine the glory unbound but it's coming as sure as the cloud.

It's hard to imagine what is yet unknown.
It's hard to imagine how things will unfold.
It's hard to imagine how much we could grow.
But it's coming as sure as the cold.

It's hard to imagine being anyone but you.
It's hard to imagine being well when you got the flu.
It's hard to imagine the joy when you're blue.
But it's coming as sure as the truth.

Have a good holiday season all.

Gary

I really like your songs, they have a very pleasant sound both in the voice and in the instrumentation.
Nice words, nice wishes ... It is true, all the good is yet to come because there was a moment when it was ...

Merry Christmas @GaryHynes

The Beatles are the Beatles and John was very much John.
They individually and collectively give me very ambivalent ideas about their music. At their best, they make me feel grateful that they graced the musical part of the world.

So -in short- I think it was a marvellous idea to write this song with this event in mind.
Chapeau!
Kind regards, Gus
