Elton John - "It Ain't Gonna Be Easy" lyrics

It ain't gonna be easy from now on You've been messing around while I've been gone But sometimes telling the truth can be unkind Folks who suffer guilt can be so blind

It ain't gonna be easy I can tell Just how empty I'm feeling you know damn well I'm telling you it ain't gonna be easy from the start Look out honey you're playing with my heart

It ain't gonna be easy that's for sure Changing things back the way they were before Once you've lifted the lid on such pain It ain't easy to put it back again

It ain't gonna be easy to forget You've been seeing a man that I ain't met I'm telling you that it ain't gonna be easy from the start Look out baby, you're playing with my heart

It ain't gonna be so easy this time around Turning back the clock on what's gone down Oh there comes a time when you need to make a stand You gotta play your cards or fold a losing hand

And it ain't gonna be easy that's no lie But if you're willing to try it so am I It ain't gonna be so easy from the start You better look out darling, you're playing with my heart
