"Hard Reaction to Love"
by Corey Landis

INTRO: F Dm/Bb

VERSE 1
F Dm/Bb
I'm dodging dishes
F Eb Bb/D
By my head a frying pan whizzes
F/C C F/D C/E F
Mouthing silent prayers to God above

My wise-cracking
Has caused unforeseen ransacking
She turns on a dime and plays way too rough
She just has a hard reaction to love
Bb/F F

CHORUS
Bb F
And I love her I do
(hard reaction to--)
But I think I'm about through
(hard reaction to love)
F/D F/Bb
'Cause all the screaming and the fisticuffs
Make me want to hock the diamond in the rough
F/C F
I thought I knew

VERSE 2
Things were fine for a year
I can't even recall when the fire (first) appeared
It's hard to think straight when you're being shoved

But after the dust settles
And I'm picking off flower petals
She says she's sorry and I shouldn't feel rebuffed
She just has a hard reaction to love

CHORUS
And I love her I do
(hard reaction to--)
But I think I'm about through
(hard reaction to love)
'Cause all the screaming and the fisticuffs
Make me want to hock the diamond in the rough
I thought I knew

BRIDGE
Eb Eb/F Bb Eb/Bb Bb
It doesn't matter that I don't deserve it
It's up to me if I want to preserve it
I've just gotta hold onto the good times
Bb Bb/A Bb/G Bb/F
When I observe them
Bb/Eb Bb/F
Or learn to take a punch
Bb
If I can't swerve them

VERSE 3

(INST.)

So, she's got some issues
It's hard to tell if she's gonna hit you or kiss you
I'm gonna have to invest in some boxing gloves
To soften her hard reaction to love
