"Easy To Be Around" as written by and Diane Cluck....
I was in the coal mine
Picking up diamonds
That the miners had left behind (behind, behind)
And I admired their cold shine
Simple and bright
And I pocketed many
In the cavernous slime
Clear when held up to the light

You belong to no one
You are easy to be around cause
You belong to no one
You are easy to be around because
You belong to no one
You are easy to be around
And I scattered them on the ground

The weight in your eyes
It decays your smile anyway
And because and because and because and because

You did it all
You are easy to be around
I like to walk beside you
You're so easy to be around
It's like I'm not even walking beside you
We are rolling along the ground
White shadow made of mercury
We were two till we melted down
Now you're easy to be around
You're easy to be around
Easy to be around
Easy to be around

Oh I was in the coal mine
Picking up diamonds so heavy
I had to leave them all behind
Coming up from the mine shafts sparkling bright
See me laughing, having nothing in an infinite night
Clear and dangling in the light
Same as what you came with

Makes you easy to be around
Cause the door remains the same width
You're so easy to be around but
You're getting what our name is
And I dance as the sun goes down
You are easy to be around
You are easy to be around
You are easy to be around
You are easy to be around

    General Comment"getting what our name is" - to me this means that a relationship which lacks depth, one in which you leave behind the heaviness you normally would carry with you, you leave with the "same as what you came with" meaning you approach the depth of a meaningful relationship but then leave it behind--that, in the end, this kind of relationship really does leave both parties with nothing. their name is nothing, they don't label themselves or their status, and they end up with empty hands at the end--perhaps without broken hearts as well.

    General Commentthese are diane cluck's official lyrics:

    i was in the coal mine picking up diamonds
    that the miners had left behind, behind, behind
    and i admired their cold shine
    simple & bright
    and i pocketed many in the cavernous night
    clear, when held up to the light

    you belong to no one
    you are easy to be around
    cuz you belong to no one
    you are easy to be around
    cuz you belong to no one
    you are easy to be around

    and i scattered them on the ground...

    in the wake of your eyes it decays
    you despise any weight
    and because and because
    and because you give it up
    you are easy to be around
    i like to walk beside you
    y're so easy to be around
    it's like i'm not even walking beside you
    we are rolling along the ground
    one shadow made of mercury
    we were two till we melted down
    now y're easy to be around

    y're easy to be around...

    i was in the coal mine picking up diamonds
    so heavy i had to leave them all behind
    coming up from the mineshaft
    sparkling bright
    see me laughing having nothing in an infinite night
    clear, and dangling in the light

    same as what you came with
    makes you easy to be around
    cuz the door remains the same width
    y're so easy to be around
    both forgetting what our name is
    in a dance as the sun goes down

    you are easy to be around
    y're easy to be around
    y're easy to be around
    y're easy to be around

    General CommentI think this song tells a story of a time when she would cling to things that she once thought were important (diamonds), which were replaced by someone she met. " You despise any weight" and "you give it up" means he doesn't care about that bullshit (the diamonds). "We were two till we melted down" - love united them as one. Basically its about someone she met who had nothing to hide, who altered her entire perception on life, which I can very much relate to.

    General CommentI think this song is about a person she met who changed her life- someone who was freed of the burden of material desire (in the wake of your eyes it decays/ you despise any weight / and because you give it up / you are easy to be around) who was unattached to any group or set identity & chose to live very independently (you belong to no one) who never had anything to hide and was very emotionally open (same as what you came with / cuz the door remains the same width) and who she feels very very close to (it's like i'm not even walking beside you / we are rolling along the ground / one shadow made of mercury / we were two till we melted down)
    the story about the diamonds in the coal mine demonstrates the freedom from worry that the other person taught her- once attached to the valuable diamonds, she can now laugh when she has to leave them behind.
