Dar Williams – The Easy Way lyrics

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
That 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, the undeserved advantage
No I never took the easy way
So, why don't you take it a little easy on me now

I know the road has so many questions
And I thought I could explode
Just for some attention
I could acolyte, I saw the flames of towering tapers
I was prophesized by the flaming piles of papers
Yeah I watched the power huddles
And their coats draped over puddles
And trust me baby, I'm the one you need

Chorus
But I never took heavy words for granted
And I never took, the undeserved advantage
No I never took the easy way
So, why don't you take it a little easy on me now

We don't want to be the ones,
Who lie and cheat and slander
So we hold each other up
To the higher standards
But I'll tell you what
I never tried to make it hard
Cause when your hard, just to be hard,
The only thing that's hard is you

So heres what I took
I kept the wine and laughter
And tell every path
That you'll screw up in ever after
Yeah through the peaks and twisty canyons
I made many great companions
Best of all is the one that loves me like you do

Chorus x 2
But I never took heavy words for granted
And I never took, the undeserved advantage
No I never took the easy way
So, why don't you take it a little easy on me now

2nd Chorus

Cause I never took heavy words for granted
And it's much too late, to even want the shortcut
Yeah I never took the easy way
So, why don't you take it a little easy on me now
Cause we know that easy, never easy anyhow
