Lovin’ Her Was Easier (Than Anything I’ll Ever Do Again) Lyrics

I have seen the morning burning golden on the mountain, in the skies
Aching with the feeling of the freedom of an eagle as she flies
Turning on the world the way you smiled upon my soul as I lay dying
And healing as the colors in the sunshine and the shadows of your eyes
Waking in the morning to the feeling of your fingers on my skin
Wiping out the traces of the people and the places that I’ve been
Teaching me that yesterday was something that I never thought of trying
Talking of tomorrow and the money, love and time we have to spend
Loving you is easier than anything I’ll ever do again
Coming close together with a feeling that I’ve never known before in my time
You ain’t ashamed to be a woman, you know, just gotta be a friend
I don’t know the answers to the easy way
You opened every door in my mind
Dreaming is as easy as believing it’s never gonna end
Loving you is easier than anything I’ll ever do again
Loving you is easier than anything I’ll ever do again
