Lyrics: I figured I would stretch my legs and spread my wings
I figured I’d just walk right out and find better things
But the fateful consequence a bad decision brings
It’s something you live with
It’s something you die with

I thought that I could live without you; what a foolish plan
Thinking that it was over before it even began
And now I see your satisfaction is coming from another man
That’s something I’m living with
That’s something I’m dying with

I said that I’d start over with somebody new
I said it right to your face baby
I said I don‘t need you, well

It was easier said than done
It was easier said than done
Like dodging bullets from a Tommy Gun
It’s just easier said than done

Well here I see you’re all dressed up; you got someplace to go
Don’t tell me what his name is; I don’t even want to know
Baby you sure earned the right to go ahead and crow
That’s something I live with
That’s something I’m dying with

But baby there’s one more life in those old nine lives cat
I think I finally found a heart; I’ll show you where it’s at
Baby you ain’t never known true love like that
It’s something we can live with
It’s something we can share together

But don’t take my word for it; if you have any doubt
Just go ahead and walk away
You’ll be sure to find out

That it’s easier said than done
It’s easier said than done
Thinking you got too much love; pretty soon you got none
It’s just easier said than done.

It’s easier said than done
It’s just easier said than done
Like dodging bullets from a Tommy Gun
It’s just easier said than done.

About the Artist
Buddy Moncrief Buddy Moncrief

Somewhere out on New Route 66, about 50 miles west of Sinatra and 75 miles east of Tom Waits, Swanson struts his swingin' and singin'. He loves Dave Frishberg songs and Johnny Walker in a tumbler. He'd like to hear Kurt Elling cover Stone Temple Pilots. Lonnie Johnson is God.

On his latest full-length release "We Can't Party Like We Used To" (2009 Acoustic SwaneeLand), Swanson pounds out 12 original vocal jazz cuts with a cool retro vibe. His bluesy vocals and tasty guitar licks remind of crooners past and present - Sinatra, Cole, John Pizzarelli come to mind - but his clever songwriting has a leaner, edgier feel to it that puts him squarely in the current century.
