It Ain't Easy

Album: The Evangelist (2008)
  • And a river ran, and a train ran, and a dream ran through everything that he did
    There was melody, there was harmony, there was sweet Sherrie, but it was melody he loved most of all
    An ice cube in a quiet room melts through an afternoon 32 in the shade
    And a books talks, and a magazine speaks, and a window breaks, and a movie was in his head

    And it ain't easy
    It ain't easy when that love is blue, the love is blue
    And it ain't easy
    It ain't easy when that love is blue, the love is blue

    It was a head trip, it was a friendship
    He picked me up when I might have slipped and not done a thing
    A sly grin, that played to win
    We will not see his kind again anymore

    And it ain't easy
    It ain't easy when that love is blue, the love is blue
    It ain't easy
    It ain't easy when that love is blue, the love is blue

    I write these words to his tune
    That he wrote on a full moon
    And a river ran, and a train ran
    And a dream ran through everything that he did

    And it ain't easy
    It ain't easy when that love is blue, that love is blue
    And it ain't easy
    It ain't easy when that love is blue, the love is blueBut it ain't easy
    It ain't easy when that love is blue, love is blue
    And it ain't easy
    It ain't easy when that love is blue, the love is blue Writer/s: ROBERT DERWENT GARTH FORSTER, GRANT WILLIAM MCLENNAN
