Takin' The Easy Way Out (Album Version)

Takin' The Easy Way Out (Album Version)

Leo Sayer

You contend
That you'll never got back to her again
You're as free as a night without end
So you tell your friends

Just what you had to endure
When you told her never, never again
And as the room about you starts to bend
You pretend

That you've taken the easy way out
Though you know ehn you told her last night
You were fakin' the easy way out
With one hand reachin' fo the door

But your feet weren't movin'
They were nailed to the floor
As she told you once more
There's no easy way to get out

She's not like you
She'd rather stay at home
'n' not get the blues
And if you ever do try to intrude

She's so respectfully rude
So it was hard to believe
Last night while you were drunk 'n'
Threatening to leave

That she walked through the door with such ease
'n' threw you the key
And she's takin' the easy way out
And you're alone with no number to call

She's taken the easy way out
With one hand reachin' for the door
And you so speechless
Marooned on the floor

She walked out of your life
Couldn't stand it no more
Now you're all on your own
'Cause she's taken the easy way out

You know she's taken the easy way out
Oh, but your pride will only admit to a lie
Yeah, she's taken the easy way out
But, to your friends

You're the hero of the night
Drowning with beef all the tears in your eyes
Hopin' it don't show that you're dyin' inside
'Cause you can't quite believe

That she's taken the easy way out
There's no goin' back now
Stuck here on your own
Lookin' for a home

Drunk and on the streets
Stuck on your feet
