"Easy livin'" as written by and Ken Hensley....
This is a thing I've never known before
It's called easy livin'
This is a place I've never seen before
And I've been forgiven

Easy livin' and I've been forgiven
Since you've taken your place in my heart

Somewhere along the lonely road I had tried to find you
Day after day on that windy road I had walked behind you

Easy livin' and I've been forgiven
Since you've taken your place in my heart

Waiting, watching
Wishing my whole life away
Dreaming, thinking
Ready for my happy day
And some easy livin'

Somewhere along the lonely road I had tried to find you
Day after day on that windy road I had walked, walked behind you

Easy livin' and I've been forgiven
Since you've taken your place in my heart
Easy livin' and I've been forgiven
Since you've taken your place in my heart

    General CommentRead the lyrics carefully...
    This song is about someone who becomes a Christian...
    The Holy Spirit has taken His place in their heart after forgiving them of their sins, so now they are "easy livin"
    On the winding road of life, they had tried to find God
    Day after day they had walked beside Him
    ...this song is describing being born again!

    Song MeaningWhen I was a teenager I wasn't sure what this song meant, but after getting born-again I now understand that it's about receiving the Lord in your heart. So, I concur w/ mbgrafixon September 28, 2009 . Uriah Heep's Easy Livin' is one of my favorite songs of the 70's.

    General CommentAm I the only one alive who really liked "High and Mighty"? I know it was different, but in a great way. Someone help me here!

    General CommentAbsolutely love this song, it has such a nice tune, one of the many songs you can listen again and again without getting bored of it, since it can create some nice feels. Kfe2 pretty much said it, so I can't really add anything, it means easy living. That you don't stress yourself too much with things like work, that you don't try to be so successful in life. Dreaming full-time and wishing about things you might not be capable to complish at the moment, but some "other time".

    General CommentSuch a Grweat Song that is so damn under-rated. It seems to be about forgeting the rules and just going with the flow to wherever it should bring you.

    General Commenti think this song is about a guy finding a woman or god.. maybe his life was hard. hes dreaming, wishing. something changed it, a woman coming into his life or god. now he has something to fill up the unused place in his heart.
