Takin' the easy way out

by Leo Sayer


You contend
Oh that you´ll never go 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 when you told her last night
You were facing the easy way out
With one hand reachin´ for 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 and 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 and threatening to leave
That she walked thorugh the door with such ease
And threw you the key
And she´s takin´ the easy way out
And now 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
´Cos she´s taken the easy way out

[Solo]

You know she´s taken the easy way out
Oh, but your pride will only admit to a lie
She´s taken the easy way out
But to your friends
You´re the hero of the night
Drowning with beer all the tears in your eyes
Hopin´ it don´t show that you´re dyin´ inside
´Cos you can´t quite believe
That she´s taken the easy way out
No going back now
Stuck here on your own
Lookin´ for a home
Drunk and on the streets
Stuck on your feet
Say babe we should talk about it
Hey, babe we should talk about it
Maybe we can come to some arrangement
Why can´t we talk about it
Why can´t we
Just like old times sit and talk about it
Y´see there´s no easy way out
Why can´t you come back
