I'm finding it hard
Just to keep up with someone
Who's hangin' onto nothin'
Only to lose what's never mine

And I'm finding it hard
Just to keep up with something
That's hangin' on to nothin'
To keep all these chains tied up and in line, in line

Pretty angel
She bites the hands of the lion
Ties it up with ribbon
Watches as hound dogs bang on her drums, drums

It's so, it's so easy for you to love nobody
It's so easy for you, 'cause you're not tryin' anymore

I seen this girl
She had her hands full of lightning
She rolled it down to me
A Lolita smile with a thorn in her eyes

Now she, she spun the world
Up on the edge of a pearl
A carnival's girl
Up on a ferris wheel forever, forever

It's so easy for you to love nobody
It's so easy for you, 'cause you're not tryin' anymore
Just don't try anymore

Now she, she howled like an owl
Only to fall like a sparrow
And lay beside the scarecrow
But after the Blackbird sings is the song, the song

It's just so easy
It's just so easy for you to love nobody
It's just so easy for you, 'cause you're not tryin' anymore
