Hard Days is a song written by Austin Plaine and performed by The Last Highways in the final season episode Sometimes You Just Can't Win. They perform it on a talk show before Will ends up collapsing in front of everyone.

Alannah, Gunnar and Avery perform an acoustic version of it in the episode Pick Yourself Up.

Lyrics

I know that I was given
Everything I could take
From the moment I was living
I was dying to make
Nothing out of something
Or real out of fake
It's hard days
Living in the world

Said the man on the corner
With a sign in his hands
And the other in his pocket
A feverish grin
"Could you spare me a dollar,
Whatever you can?"
It's hard days
Living in the world

Oh, oh
Oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh

The mother in the market
With the kids in line
Getting poorer every second
Trying hard to survive
The water isn't running
The bills pile high
It's hard days
Living in the world

The paper [?] of terror
[?]
The communistic pleasures
Of a union strike
The president shelters
In his bed at night
It's hard days
Living in the world

Oh, oh
Oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh

The soldier in the desert
Hear the shot in the heart
As his mother gets a letter
Saying he fought hard
Well it doesn't help the matter
If he's honored or not
It's hard days
Living in the world

The choir sings a hymn
Oh, it's the [?]
The family in the front row
Looking at her
And everyone's an angel
For what it's worth
It's hard days
Living in the world

Oh, oh
Oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh

I know that I was given
Everything I could take
From the moment I was living
I was dying to make
Nothing out of something
Or real out of fake
It's hard days
Living in the world
Yeah it's hard days
Living in the world
Yeah it's hard days
Living in the world
