The Road Easy

I wrote this in my tiny, scary little apartment in North Philadelphia in 1996 and later recorded it in los Angeles. It won a songwriting award hosted by The Nashville Songwriters Association International and CMT in 2004 and I still remember writing this song from start to finish in about an hour! That rarely happens but I got lucky with this one. It was released on "Lost in my Head" a CD that is no longer in print but can be found on ITUNES.


The Road Easy © 1996 nicole gordon When we were young, it wasn’t so long ago The dreams we shared, oh the places we’d go But you’ve changed, there’s someone new And you claim that what we had is through Chorus But I can hear you, through the walls every night And I can see you, I see right through your eyes And I can feel you, you next to me But I can’t have you, you chose the Road Easy You’re new life, it seems so strange to me She wants to be your wife, and you’ll raise a family What about your dream, to be a big star To be with me, did it get too hard CHORUS It’s still so hard to believe the man that you’ve become There once was a time we were so close we were one But maybe love does that to you Maybe love changed your mind If you’re happy I’ll say I’m happy for you I hope that love didn’t make you blind
