Standing barefoot on a cold wood floor
Looking out the window of my back door
If it keeps on raining I think the whole damn house is gonna float away
The alarm was buzzing at the break of dawn
My husband asking "Is the coffee on?"
and easy's gettin' harder every day

I'll drop the baby off at school at nine
and bust the lights to get to work on time
where I'll be staring at the clock just waiting to knock off another day
When supper's done we'll watch some TV show
of a bunch of folks who've never heard of Idaho
where easy's gettin' harder every day

I had a garden but my flowers died
There ain't much living here inside
Lately I don't know what I'm holding on to
Wish I could run away to Couer d'Alene
take nothing with me, not even my name
'cause easy's gettin' harder every day

We make love and we kiss goodnight,
he rolls over and he's out like a light
But I ain't mad about it, we got nothing to talk about anyway
The lights are blinking on the radio tower
I lie awake and stare at them for hours and hours
'cause easy's gettin' harder every day

I had a garden but my flowers died
There ain't much living here inside
Lately I don't know what I'm holding on to
I'll never make it up to Couer d'Alene
There ain't no chance of me forgetting my name
and easy, it keeps on gettin' harder every day

And it feels like easy, it just keeps on gettin' harder every day

    General CommentA song with the title of 'Easy's Gettin' Harder Every Day' just grabs your attention. It's all about the routine of life which when you do it an excessive number of times becomes "easy" in itself but ironically also becomes "harder" because of the monotonous routine. The singer with her gritty voice makes the song all the more relevant as she itemises the events and pleasures of our lives albeit with a degree of acceptance. The repetition of the song title at the end of each verse reinforces the reality of the song's sentiment. A beautiful song not trying to airbrush the responsibilities and realities of life but perhaps helping the listener to accept what they feel, at times, in the mediocrity of the daily grind.
