Hard/Easy by Jeff Bagato

It’s hard to
It’s hard to think
It’s hard to get up in the morning
It’s hard to know when to stop
It’s hard to resist the call of the credit card
It’s hard to kiss & make up
It’s hard to get to sleep sometimes
It’s hard to take a chance on love
It’s hard to make ends meet
It’s hard to step on a crack without believing
It’s hard to jump off a cliff
It’s easy to fly in your dreams
It’s easy to break your mama’s back
It’s easy to lose your shirt
It’s easy to be your dog
It’s easy to fall asleep at your desk
It’s easy to argue, curse & pout
It’s easy to slap down the plastic
It’s easy to take another donut from the box
It’s easy to start crying in the dawn
It’s easy to think
It’s easy to
