Easy

It could be so easy / To tell you that nothing’s changed
To act like it’s all okay / And pretend everything’s the same
It’d be so easy / To tell everyone that I lied / It was just something I had to try
But I’m back now in my right mind / But life’s not easy

I don’t make decisions lightly / And I know this one is huge
But how does me learning who I really am / Make it difficult for you?
And I mean it when I tell you / This has always been in my heart
So please don’t say I need to be quiet / As I’m trying to live out loud

‘Cause if you love me like you say you do / Why are you making it so damn hard
For me to speak my truth?

‘Cause it could be so easy / To tell you that nothing’s changed
To act like it’s all okay / And pretend everything’s the same
It’d be so easy / To tell everyone that I lied / It was just something I had to try
But I’m back now in my right mind / But life’s not easy

For every voice in my head who says / “Be who you are”
There are twenty outside who say, “Don’t” / There are millions of reasons
Why I should give up / But I’m telling you right now, I won’t

So, if you’re happy for me / That I’m living my life
Why is it suddenly so damn hard / For you to look me in the eye?

‘Cause it could be so easy / To tell you that nothing’s changed
To act like it’s all okay / And pretend everything’s the same
It’d be so easy / To tell everyone that I lied / It was just something I had to try
But I’m back now in my right mind

So, if you love me like you say you do / Why do you only love me if I live like you?

‘Cause it could be so easy / To tell you that nothing’s changed
It could be so easy / To pretend everything’s the same
Oh, it would be so easy / To just cover up the truth / Oh, it would be so easy
So much easier for you
