"Loving You Is Easy" lyrics:

Loving you is easy

Loving you is wondrous and pure

I shout it from the rooftops

How long must I wait 'till I see your smile?

Might have been the moonlight

Caught up in the sparkle in your eyes

So wicked and I know I should go slow

but its not in me to wait

'Cause I'm alive and I'm on fire

Shot like a starburst into the sky

Ahh the fury of desire it burns so bright electrifies

You light me up you take me higher

I've been down a long road

I'd become a stranger to myself

Digging in my heels and hoping time might be kinder

if I wait it out

But nothing came from wanting

And I became so small and insecure

Didn't know the cost of all I'd lost till I found it fresh and new

again, with you

'Cause I'm on fire

Shot like a starburst into the sky

All the fury of desire it burns so bright electrifies

You light me up you take me higher

Loving you is easy

Loving you is wondrous and pure

I shout it from the rooftops

How long must I wait 'till I see your smile?

Changes

I can't believe that you're walking away from us

Could not conceive we'd ever be done

But I feel you drifting you don't have to hide from me

I just keep hoping you let me in

Maybe I can't help but talking may, I am here for you

Time passes us by and the way we love changes

And we're learning to waltz through the waves

like everyone

Let it keep us from falling

Would you dance with me now?

The candle burned out

and we stumbled around in the dark

And I can feel you slipping away

The band keeps on playing the world keeps revolving

Around all the static, the noise in between

And we need to hear that song again,

let the love shine through

Time passes us by and the way we love changes

And we're learning to waltz through the waves

like everyone

Let it keep us from falling

Would you dance with me, dance with me now?

New walls new ladders, none of this matters

We can't walk on water, we can only do better

If its not forever, if it's time to go I will always remember

I want you to know

When you held me in your arms and said, let the love shine through

Time passes us by and the way we love changes

And we're learning to waltz through the waves

like every one

Let it keep us from falling

Would you dance with me, dance with me now?

Would you dance with me, dance with me now?
