Lyrics

You wanna sing the blues, you gotta pay some dues
‘cause it ain’t coming easy
You don't have to shout or thrash all about,
You can take it real easy

Forget about the past and all your sorrows,
The future, it won't last,
It’ll soon be old tomorrow

I don't ask for much, all I want is trust,
But I know it don't come easy
And this love of mine is growing all the time,
But it ain’t growing easy

Open up your heart, let's come together,
If we use a little bit love
we can make it work out better

You gotta pay some dues if you wanna sing the blues,
‘cause it ain’t coming easy
You don't have to shout or go tracing all about,
You can take it real easy

Lord, remember love, that’s how we’ll make it
It’s right here within your reach
If you're big enough to take it

I don't ask for much, all I want is a little bit of trust,
But I know it ain’t coming easy
Taking this love of mine it’s growing all the time,
But it ain’t growing easy
It ain’t growing easy
It ain’t coming easy
I got a love growing all the time
but it ain’t coming easy

It ain’t coming easy
It ain’t coming easy
