Ron Pope – If Love Was Easy lyrics

On the floor because the bed was angry
Rhapsody in technicolor shades
You got a way of making me a liar
In spite of my instincts to run away

I wake up feeling seasick but I’m staying
Outside of you dying for a change
Burned my house to embers for this moment
As your shadow swallows all my pain

If love was easy, everybody’d do it
If love was easy, you would still be here
Just ‘cause it was good once doesn’t mean there’s nothing to it
If love was easy, everybody’d do it

Couldn’t help myself and said “I love you”
You didn’t say it back, but that’s all right
Sat there in the bathtub getting wrinkled
Soaking in the silence as the night

Etched your angles on my hippocampus
Where I keep these treasures you can’t steal
There are times remembering you is a poison
At least the scars remind me you were real

If love was easy, everybody’d do it
If love was easy, you would still be here
Just ‘cause it was good once doesn’t mean there’s nothing to it
If love was easy, everybody’d do it

My lock found a key for a while or so it seemed
Woke up in Valhalla and we brought the gods down to their knees
If we couldn’t make it last, well who on earth is playing for keeps?

If love was easy, everybody’d do it
If love was easy, you would still be here
Just ‘cause it was good once doesn’t mean there’s nothing to it
If love was easy, everybody’d do it
If love was easy, everybody’d do it
If love was easy, everybody’d do it
