It's Not So Easy

I wish I could look you in the eye
I came down here to make us whole
It’s not easy living with your memory
It’s even harder to say it to your soul

She still has your picture on the wall
Her boys know who their Daddy is
I’m trying my best not to disrespect you
It’s not easy always thinking this is his

It’s not so easy living like I don’t belong
I’ll love them all my own way
I can only be myself
I hope I’m doing nothing wrong

You know we met twice before
You shook my hand, gave me a drink
Then I lost track of you and your bride
Now I’m not so sure what to think

I’m going to ask you something
You don’t owe me a thing
I want your blessing to love her
I want to buy her a diamond ring

It’s not so easy living like I don’t belong
I’ll love them all my own way
I can only be myself
I hope I’m doing nothing wrong

I think she’s watching us talk now
She’s shed the tears your life deserved
I’ll let her grieve if she needs more time
I hope your memory is properly served

I’m going to head back north now
You know where I’m gonna’ be
If you need to talk to me sometime
Send me a dove, I’ll mark the tree

It’s not so easy living like I don’t belong
I’ll love them all my own way
I can only be myself
I hope I’m doing nothing wrong
