Music Monday–You Make it Easy

I’ve enjoyed Jason Aldean’s You Make it Easy since first hearing it. While I was trying to find a song for this week that spoke to the themes in Mr. Darcy’s Compassion and it was an easy choice. However, I had never seen the official music video.

I was blown away. It’s actually three parts and you *have* to watch all three to get it. At one point, I thought the story in the video might be too sad to share. The song does have a bit of a bluesy tune, after all. I kept watching, though, and it was so worth it. I was crying by the end. It’s beautiful.

Lyrics:

Like a rainy Sunday morning makes me want to stay in bed
Twisted up all day long
You’re my inspiration, girl you take me places
Put the words right into these songs

Stealing kisses under cover, babe
See forever when I see your face
And I swear God made you for me

You make it easy
Lovin’ up on you
Make it easy
With every little thing you do
You’re my sunshine in the darkest days
My better half, my saving grace
You make me who I wanna be
You make it easy

You took all my rough around the edges
Never let it ruffle up your feathers, angel
Yeah I’m down for life, you got me wrapped around your finger
And I like it just in case you can’t tell

You make it easy
Lovin’ up on you
Make it easy
With every little thing you do
You’re my sunshine in the darkest days
My better half, my saving grace
You make me who I wanna be
You make it easy

Stealing kisses under cover, babe
See forever when I see your face
And I swear God made you for me

You make it easy
Lovin’ up on you
Make it easy
With every little thing you do
You’re my sunshine in the darkest days
My better half, my saving grace
You make me who I wanna be
You make it easy
You make it easy

I wasn’t prepared for that plot twist. Were you? I love it though. The song specifically addresses a girl, but I think after watching the videos it’s just as easy to hear the song could be from the woman’s perspective and that despite the challenges in their relationship, loving him is easy. I think it suits Mr. Darcy’s Compassion very well and the hopeless romantic in me loves the theme of enduring love!
