Easier

(oehler/goedken)

Tell me one thing, she said
Do you remember what we did in bed?
The lines we used, the things we said
All these thoughts now in your head

Not the lies I told you then
Not the lies that might have been
But they’re torn and tattered
And, she said, our love has shattered

Leaving’s always easier
When you’ve got someplace to go
Break away for something more
You’re traveling too slow
Running back down to the start
With nothing left to show
Leaving’s always easier
When you’ve got someplace to go

Tell me one thing, I said
Do you remember how we laughed in bed?
The parts we played, the lines unsaid
All these thoughts now in your head

All the roles I might have been
All the roles that we’d pretend
Well, they’re worn and battered
And, I guess, they haven’t mattered

Is it easier?
It’s always easier

Tell me one thing
Do you remember?
Do you?

Just tell me one thing
Is it easier?
It’s always easier

Leaving’s always easier
When you’ve got someplace to go
Running off now to explore
You’re traveling too slow
Falling back down to the start
With nothing left to show
Leaving’s always easier
When you’ve got someplace to go

It’s not easy
Tell me it’s not easy

Do you remember?
Tell me you remember

Is it easier?
Tell me is it easy?

Do you remember
Tell me, tell me
Will you remember?
