The Easy Ones

lyrics

You can't just love the easy ones
You can't just love the easy ones
You’ve got to let them in when you'd rather just run
You can't just love the easy ones

You can't just play the simple songs
You can't just play the simple songs
You gotta knuckle down ’til your fingers are raw
You can't just play the simple songs

When I can face the ones I fear
It’ll all become clear
Oh when I embrace the ones I fear
It’ll all become clear

You can't just take the shortest road
You can't just take the shortest road
You’ve got to straighten your back ‘neath the heaviest load
You can't just take the shortest road

When I can face the ones I fear
It’ll all become clear
Oh when I embrace the ones I fear
It’ll all become clear

For all the suffering souls beside me
I pray love will guide me
I pray love will guide me home

You can't just love the easy ones
You can't just love the easy ones
You’ve got to let them in deep when you'd rather just run
You can't just love the easy ones
