"Coming Up Easy" as written by Paolo Giovanni Nutini and Matt Benbrook....
Sunday morning go the hazy, hazy jeans
I turn to you and inhale where you lay.
Took a wonder through the garden,
To awake the long long day
And then roll of a while on violet flower bed.

Oh, you kiss my lips again and again and again
And then again and then we watched the sun coming up easy
While the rain came tumbling down
And it watched our bodies so cleanly
We could see them rise up off of the cold cold ground.

Its a shame the way its seems to go
Cause now my best friend, my partner in crime
I'm afraid it looks like we're
Gonna have to go our separate ways.
You see the thing is I love you, I love you
But you see I resent you all the time.
All my other friends their just saying
Your slowing me down.

Oh I should have known
You'd turn to me and say
Before you throw too much of me away.
Don't you remember seeing the sun coming up easy
While the rain came tumbling down.
And it washed out bodies so cleanly
Seen them rise up off of the cold cold ground.

We seen the sun coming up easy
While the rain came tumbling down
And it washed our bodies so clean
We could feel them rise up off of the cold cold ground.

It was in love I was created
And in love is how I hope I die
And in love is how I hope I die

    Song MeaningThe song is clearly about weed addiction, for anyone who isnt sure, here's my view.

    Sunday morning, got the hazy, hazy JANES
    -"Janes are a term used for being high on weed, in this case, Hazy Janes most likely refers to the morning after he was high on Saturday night"

    I turn to you and inhale you where you lay.
    - "The spliff is still smoking on the bedside table or something"

    Took a wander through the garden,

    To await the long, long day,

    And then roll for a while on a violet flowerbed.


    Oh, you kiss my lips again and again and again,
    -"He cannot stop smoking the joint, 'you' refers to the weed, it is literally kissing his lips"

    And then again, again
    -"Once again, he cannot stop"

    We would watch the sun coming up easy,
    -"He hallucinates joyous things, hence the line below"

    While the rain came tumbling down,
    -"There is no sun 'coming up easy!'"

    And it would wash our bodies so cleanly

    That we would seem to rise up off of the cold, cold ground
    -"Another hallucination from the effects of weed"

    It's a shame the way it seems to go

    But now my best friend, my partner in crime
    -"His addiction makes him reluctantly conjoined to weed, hence becoming his 'best' friend"

    I'm afraid it looks as though we're gonna have to go our separate ways,
    -"He has decided that he must fight his addiction"

    Oh, See, the thing is, I love you.
    -"He is addicted to weed"

    I love you but you see, I resent you all the same.
    -"But he is aware of the damage it is doing, and it trying to fight it"

    All my other friends say you're just slowing me down.
    -"His friends try to persuade him to stop smoking it, as weed does indeed slow the brain down!"

    Oh, but I should have known you'd turn to me and say,
    -"He will have withdrawal symptoms from giving it up."

    Before you throw too much of me away

    Don't you remember watching the sun coming up easy
    -"Remember all the good times you had from weed"

    While the rain came tumbling down?

    And it washes our bodies so cleanly,

    We just seem to rise up off of the cold, cold ground.

    I see the sun coming up easy,

    while the rain came tumbling down.

    And it washed our bodies so clean

    That we seemed to rise up off of the cold, cold ground

    It was in love I was created and in love is how I hope I die.
    -"He doesnt want to further damage his body from intoxication"

    Yeah it was in love I was created and in love is how I hope I die (repeated)

    We watched the sun coming up easy (repeated)



    There you are!!

    Enough evidence to suggest the song is about his weed addiction!!!

    General Commentit is actually "janes" not jeans, as mary jane (marihuana- maria juana)

    any review of sunny side up will tell u this song is about his issues with weed.

    My Interpretation'Coming Up' is a term used for when MDMA/Ecstasy is starting to take affect, so I'm guessing that the song is about MDMA/Ecstasy but has links to Weed because it is normally the gateway towards other drugs like MDMA

    General CommentThis song means more to me each time I hear it. At first I thought it just another really good love song. But now that I see it as having to do with Marijuana, I'm really impressed. This guy can write what he feels and he can feel.
    I can only stop listening to it enough to listen to " last Request" Wow! I'm from the sixties and in my sixties...And I stopped listening to new artist with REM...But this guy has hit all the right spots.
    I'm back Baby! I'm back! Thanks to Paolo, I'm back and loving it!
