You Were Easy

I came to see you one night, not knowin’ why I came,

I’d heard you were a lover of ladies; I didn’t want to be treated the same.

 

I’d heard that you loved and left them, so I came as a friend,

I wanted to understand you; but I never dreamed of how it would end.

 

For you, you were easy, I was lonely,

So tell me, what more could anyone ask of you?

 

Needing your company, I found you needed mine,

We grew close in conversation, in a very short time (and)

 

Suddenly, you were vulnerable, and I found I cared,

Enough, to want you, so strongly that the night was shared.

 

But you, you were easy, I was lonely,

So tell me, what more could anyone ask of you?

 

Later I left you, left you sleeping soundly,

I was full of the warmth, of the man who’d had his arms around me.

 

And you, you were easy, I was lonely.

So tell me, what more could anyone ask of you?

 

I’m not holding on to you, as other girls have done.

I know you are still traveling, nor do I think you’re the one, (for me).

 

But now I understand why so many women cried,

They held on to you too tightly, until all your feelings for them died.

But with me, you were easy, I was lonely,

So tell me what more could anyone ask of you?

 

I just came from calling you; I called to say Good-bye.

Heard that you were leaving soon; well I certainly won’t cry, over you.

 

Because you, you were easy, I was lonely,

So tell me, what more could anyone ask of you?

 

No, I’ll recall, that you were easy, I was lonely,

So tell me, what more could anyone ask of you?

 

No, you,… you were easy.
