(By Kris Kristofferson)
(Loving her was easier than anything I'll ever do again)
Oh, I have seen the morning burning golden
On the mountains in the skies
Aching with the feeling of the freedom
of an eagle when she flies.
Turnin' on the world the way she smiled
Upon my soul as I lay dying
Healing as the colors in the sunshine
And the shadows of her eyes.
Waking in the morning
To the feeling of her fingers on my skin
Wiping out the traces of the people
And the places that I've been.
Teachin' me that yesterday
Was something that I never thought of trying
Talking of tomorrow and the money
Love and time we had to spend.
Loving her was easier
Than anything I'll ever do again
Coming close together with a feeling
That I'd never known before in my time.
She ain't ashamed to be a woman
Or afraid to be a friend
I don't know the answers to
The easy way she opened every door in my mind.
But dreamin' was as easy as believin'
It was never gonna end
And loving her was easier
Than anything I'll ever do again...
