I've been takin' it easy too long
Sticking around this lonesome town
Like a bird that just won't fly
Oh why can't I just get over you?
What'll I do?

I've been takin' it easy too long
Hanging around in a reckless way
Drinkin' whiskey on the tracks
All of the plans I've made just pass away
Never again

Cause there's wasted hours and there's wasted days
I'm gonna waste a few more if I get my way
Cause takin' it easy ain't the easy way after a while

I've been takin' it easy too long
Waitin' for a woman when I should've been gone
Like a song that ain't been sung
That's what my life's become
Sittin' in my car
Look at the stars

Cause there's a million stars in the sky at night
You get lost if you don't shine too bright
And I've been takin' it easy most every night
For far too long

I've been takin' it easy too long
