I used to think I could live by the law And believe everything that my own two eyes saw But now all the certainties have come undone And it's harder to walk these days than run I was always impressed with how lassie could tell The good guys from bad guys just by their smell But now they're all odourless everyone And it's harder to walk these days than run I read all the books, I thought words could repair And I dreamed of a language that everyone shared But all reason retreats in the face of a gun And it's harder to walk these days than run And how can I consider what's wrong and what's right? When everything moves even faster than light? I'm not even sure I can trust in the sun It's so much harder to walk these days than run You told me everything in its own time And you waited for yours and I waited for mine And right from the start I knew you were the one Who'd make it easier to walk these days Easier to walk these days Easier to walk these days Than run Easier to walk these days than run Easier
to walk these days than run Than run Than run Oh it's easier to walk these days than run
