The Easy Way
I knew a guy I thought he was my first love But he had to decide Between me and the one before And she stacked it all up Like a house of cards Said if he didn't come back He'd find her flattened on the floor And though I went and lived in my own hell Thought that I could die as well I let him go where he thought he had to go [Chorus] Cause I never took Heavy words for granted And I never took Undeserved advantage No I never took The easy way So why don't you take it a little easy on me now? Out on the road I had so many questions I thought I would explode Just for some attention Like an acolyte I saw the flames of towering tapers Almost proselytized by those gleaming piles of paper Yeah I watched the power huddles And the coats draped over puddles And trust me baby, I'm the one you need [Chorus] Cause we all want to be the ones Who lie, cheat, and slander So we hold each other up to a higher standard But I'll tell you what I never try to make it hurt Because when your heart Just to be whole The only thing that's hard is you So here's what I took I kept the wine and laughter Until every pack It just grew up and ever after Through the peaks and twisty canyons I made many great companions Best of all is the one who loves me like you do [Chorus] Cause I never took Heavy words for granted And it's much too late To even want a shortcut Yeah I never took The easy way So you can take it a little easy now. Because we know that easy is never easy anyhow.
