lyrics

(lyrics)

Used to laugh about it
Make a joke, keep it light
Used to do without it
Let it go without a fight
Used to cry about it
Wonder when, wonder how
Pray somehow, pray somehow

Well it's easier now
I took some time to find out
And it's really a matter of
The benefit of the doubt
When all you love is what you do
You're doing what will get you through
Just make this vow
And it's easier now

Used to hold a candle
In the wind, in the rain
Looking for an answer
For a light along the way
Far down another road
See a sign, see the end
See a true friend, see a true friend

Well it's easier now
I took some time to find out
And it's really gone beyond
A shadow of a doubt
When all you need is what you love
You'll always be reminded of
The eleventh hour
It makes it easier now

Easy, easier now
So easy, it's easier now

Used to lose the battle
Run away from the fight
Used to face the struggle
Didn't know the wrong from right
Used to be afraid of
What I thought, what I knew
Was the truth, was the truth

Well it's easier now
I took some time to find out
And it's really a question of
What you can do without
All your love is going to be
The thing that sets your whole world free
Just listen to the sound
And it's easier now
