Easy As Life
Elton John, Tim Rice
Album: Elton John and Tim Rice's Aida (99)

this is the moment when the gods expect me
to beg for help but I won't even try
I want nothing in the world but myself to protect me
but I won't lie down, roll over and die

all I have to do is forget how much I love him
all I have to do is put my longing to one side
tell myself that love's an ever-changing situation
passion would have cooled and all the magic would have died

it's easy, it's easy

until I think about him as he was when I last saw him
and how he would have been were I to be with him today
tender in his manner consolation
all I ever wanted and I'm throwing it away

it's easy, it's easy as life

all I have to do is pretend I never knew him
on those very rare occations when he steals into my heart
better to have lost him when the ties were barely binding
better the content of the familiar kind of start

it's easy, it's easy

until I think about him as he was when I last touched him
and how he would have been were I to be with him today
those very rare occations don't let up, they keep coming
all I ever wanted and I'm throwing it away

it's easy, it's easy as life

and then I see the faces of worn defeated people
a father and a nation who won't let a coward run
is this how the gods reward the faithful through the ages
forcing us to prove that all the hardest things we've done

are easy, so easy

and though I'll think about him until the earth draws in around me
and though I choose to leave him for another king of love
this is no denial, no betrayal, but redemption
redeemed in my allies and in the pantheon above
