Extra NOTES (by Julian Gill) :
"You Make It Hard For Me" has long been known as a title of a song that Ace Frehley wrote with Sebastian Bach prior to the start of the KISS "
Psycho Circus" sessions.
The song was demoed by Ace Frehley, Sebastian Bach, Richie Scarlett, and Anton Fig. 
At the time it was apparently close to making the album, but was eventually cut. According to Sebastian, "I talked to Gene Simmons and I asked him what happened and he said he didn't want any songs about sex on the new record because he had done so many songs like that" (ballbustermusic). As the title would suggest, there is some sexual innuendo reminiscent to KISS' own "(You Make Me) Rock Hard" from the "Smashes, Thrashes, and Hits" album released in 1988, though the lyrics (see below) are a bit more direct. It is also ironic to hear the suggestion that Gene didn't want the song on the album for sexual reasons (especially when fans were being sold the line that producer Bruce Fairbairn was in ultimate control of what was recorded for the album, but that's another aside)...

At the time it was easy to accept Sebastian's comment blaming Gene for the lack of the song's inclusion on the album. It was known that a lot of music had been written and had not made the album, not just Ace's material. 
The copyright registration for a song with the title "You Make It Hard For Me" is credited to Ace Frehley and Marty Kupersmith. Marty had been a member of Jay & The Americans (a band with ties to Paul Stanley's Uncle Joe band) and had written "We Got Your Rock" in 1983 - it soon found itself to Ace and turned up on his first post-KISS solo album.

From the Frehley/Kupersmith copyright it was noted that the song was written in 1985. Marty had copy-written the song (PAu-1-829-029) in early 1994 - correctly noting Ace's co-writing contribution. So, it would seem that the 1998 song borrowed at least the title from the 1985 composition. Additionally, Marty had released his version of the song on his 1996 album, "It'll Come To You" This release of the song could go some way to explaining the song's absence from "Psycho Circus" and further Ace Frehley interest. 



You Make It Hard for Me (lyrics)
[Verse]
You look so good, you get me hot
I would if I could, take everything you got
You got a funky butt, long legs too
You kinda look like a slut
You make me come too soon
Lovin' you is easy, easy as can be
But when we're alone girl...

[Chorus]
You make it hard for me
You make it hard for me
You make it hard for me
You make it hard for me

Don't know which way to go
You make it hard for me

[Verse]
A little bit nasty, a little bit nice
Like leather and satin, fire and ice
One thing for certain; I'll be your slave
You've got what it takes, baby
To raise the dead from the grave
Lovin' you is easy, easy as can be
But when we're alone girl... (Whoa)

[Chorus]

Don't know which way to go
You make it hard for me

[Guitar Break]

Let's go!

[Guitar Solo]

Lovin' you is easy, easy as can be
But when we're alone girl... (Whoa)

[Chorus]

So hard...

You're such a good little girl
To this bad little guy
