Grateful Dead

Easy To Love You

Lyrics By: John Barlow
Music By: Brent Mydland

Good, good morning, so good to see you
You weren't just a dream of mine
Real as a raven, real as thunder (note 1)
Real as the sun shining
But still so very hard to find
I can't imagine what's behind those sleepy eyes

Little stranger, don't try to hide now
You look so young and you're afraid
There is no danger but from the devil
And he may want you but I'm in his way
You don't know how easy it is
You don't know how easy it is to love you

And come the moonrise, when the dew falls
Don't be the sun that fades away
Don't leave me darkness, she is no lover
She hides the day
You don't know how easy it is
You don't know how easy it is to love you

(1) according to Ihor Slabicky, this line was originally "Real as a bluebird ..." but was changed to "raven" at the urging of Clive Davis, President of Arista Records, so as to make the song more 'Grateful Dead sounding'
