I knew a guy I thought he was my first love But he had to decide Between me and the one before And she stacked it all up Like a house of cards Said if he didn't come back He'd find her flattened on the floor And though I went and lived in my own hell Thought that I could die as well I let him go where he thought he had to go
[Chorus] Cause I never took Heavy words for granted And I never took Undeserved advantage No I never took The easy way So why don't you take it a little easy on me now?
Out on the road I had so many questions I thought I would explode Just for some attention Like an acolyte I saw the flames of towering tapers Almost proselytized by those gleaming piles of paper Yeah I watched the power huddles And the coats draped over puddles And trust me baby, I'm the one you need
Cause we all want to be the ones Who lie, cheat, and slander So we hold each other up to a higher standard But I'll tell you what I never try to make it hurt Because when your heart Just to be whole The only thing that's hard is you
So here's what I took I kept the wine and laughter Until every pack It just grew up and ever after Through the peaks and twisty canyons I made many great companions Best of all is the one who loves me like you do
Cause I never took Heavy words for granted And it's much too late To even want a shortcut Yeah I never took The easy way So you can take it a little easy now. Because we know that easy is never easy anyhow.
