D'Angelo - Ain't That Easy Lyrics




[Verse 1:]
Take a toke of smoke from me as you dream inside
Let your days slip away come with me and ride
My darlin'
You aren't the average kind
You need the comfort of my lovin'
To bring out the best in you
I hope that you do
See what you've given to me
Separatin', Debatin'
Stay with me that's all you gotta do

[Chorus:]
(Give yourself a chance) You can't leave me
(No way) It ain't that easy
(No way) To walk away
(Just stay) When I want you to stay, baby
(Give yourself a chance) You can't leave me
It ain't that easy
(Okay) Ow ow ow

[Verse 2:]
Ever hit with a choice that you can't decide?
Which direction left or right
Shut your mouth off and focus on what you feel inside
(See y'all know I'ma go with my vibe)
You won't believe all the things you have to sacrifice
Just to get peace of mind
And you take what they give as if it did suffice
Still it's just a waste of time
Aaah
I offer you the truth
You need the comfort of my lovin' to bring out the best in you
I wanna give you somethin' to feed your mind
Separatin', don't debate it
Faithfully we'll see this love through

[Chorus]

[Bridge:]
I got just what you need, babe
All this love you'll receive, yeah
I been waitin' so long

[Verse 3:]
I tell you this sincerely
I need the comfort of your lovin'
To bring out the best in me
I'm gonna keep you
Safe from evil opinion
What I got can't duplicate it
Faithfully we'll see this love through

[Chorus]

  19. Will Padget

    Playing some of my old albums. I don't think I really appreciated this enough when it came out. Same with "To Pimp a Butterfly". Fucking brilliant. "Voodoo" will always be my #1, but damn...

  20. Karin 7.London

    My Roller Skating Song

  21. DLloyd_KiiiNG_Israel

    The brilliance of Black Messiah is that D'angelo made it for 2019. If you look around, a lot of Black people are Waking up to the fact that we are the true children of Israel. D'Angelo knew the Awakening was just around the corner, listen to 1000 deaths. In that song he says "the moment of truth is near" . The moment of truth he is referring to is the Awakening of the true children of Israel(The Negros).

  22. Robbie London

    Funny when this album dropped in 2014/15 Pbs dropped a documentary called Black Messiah's about the 1970's and the black panthers etc ironic that D'angelo dropped this gem with the backdrop of Ferguson etc police killings young blacks uprising against injustice good looking out D'angelo we still love your flow 4 ever!!!...

  23. Emiliano Morado

    I don't like the dark distortion on the vocal in the beginning. But this song is the shit

  24. Laan Carlos Barros

  34. Freaky Fernanq

    I love how far behind the beat everything is.

  35. padah513

  52. Mário Filho

    been hearing this song for too much time. what I love the most it's how in the chorus the bass hits less notes, so it makes less noise, but somehow the groove its even heavier. sorry, can't explain this properly.

  53. samajé Manuel

    Somebody write the lyrics

  54. Kayanda Eddings

    This is my favorite track from the album. This track reminds me of the late great prince

  63. Reginald Dorsey

  65. Roberto Rumba

    denkinaga

    denkinaga

    i hear u always wear mankini while listening to these guys :D

  66. Kayanda Eddings

    This sounds like a song that prince would do if he was still living.

  67. Sam Moseley

    best song..

  68. Gadd Ovame

    From a musician's perspective (which I am), I love the artistry and genius displayed here. However, I have to agree with Angie Stone, the mushy, indecipherable lyrics just block my ability to really enjoy this project.

  69. luis angel lopez macias

    yeaah! increible the sanity that you save, but not closer to my

  70. Travis Wheeler

    Thank GOD, for music and musician!

  71. ハンナ

    THis album and the productions is pure MAGIK

  72. ALLCAPSARCHER09

    best sound ever

  73. Ms. M.

    OOOOOH! At my desk, bounce, bounce, bounce, head snap, pop! Ow, ow, w!! :D

  74. LaDyMaXx

    You know an album be rooted in your soul when THIS the song you wake up humming...and keep with you all day....and it's not even yr favourite track off the album.

  75. Marvin

    Purchased this album a few months ago and have just now stated listening to it. I have always been a fan but this album is a beast.

  76. Once Upon A Spiritual Alchemist

    Brother you're funkier than to gym socks and a bag of chittlin mix!!!

  77. Quincy Patterson

    D does it again with this one

  78. PragmaticCrane0 0

    I was trying SO hard to remember the name of this song the other day because I had forgotten the lyrics to it. I'm happy I remembered the "you can't leave me" part because Googling that brought me to this! (:

  79. Louis Alemayehu

    Sly & the Family are in the house?

  80. Per Qvindesland

    I know he wants to sound a bit like prince but compared to prince he sounds a bit like pig shit.

    KarlJC1411

    Why do you say

    Per Qvindesland

    Because he sounds like he has constipation problems, in other words shit, I know I am swearing in the church but this is not on the same quality as prince

    Nothing Really

    D'Angelo is nearly as good as Prince. Both are perfectionists and D'Angelo is a proper disciple.

  81. Brian Smith

    Apparently this album was a big influence on Bowie when he was recording Blackstar.

    Logan Wendt

    A lot of great albums and artist inspired that album a lot.

    enJoyTheHour

    Really Love was also an influence on the newest Of Montreal record

  82. Alana Angelo

    d'angelo is cool I like his music so much one day I mite here the album

  83. Alana Angelo

    never gets old!!

  84. Troy Lowe

    I'm hearing early 70's Funkadelic, Al green and Prince all over this, and I love it.

    Tony Key

    Troy Lowe thank you. so much accutacy in that ear of yours.

    Jo Rossi

    🎶👌💯

    Christian Ma

    Seriously only dangelo sounds like dangelo. I say it as a musician his compositions are pretty unique and in this album more than ever.

    Brittney Cook

    More like George Clinton parliment/funkadelic mixed with prince and Sly and the family stone!! Periodt!

  85. Teagen Meyer

    What was that sample at 3:09? I've heard that in something Hendrix did.

  86. Alana Angelo

    my dad plays it all the time in his car

  87. Elliot Hayden

    This is my New York soundtrack.

  88. Jamaine Tucker

    I need D'Angelo and Thundercat to collab

    JeIIen

    What the hell? I just came here from a Flying Lotus album directly after listening to "Them Changes" on repeat for like an hour. Good look, man.

    Moeketsi Malepe

    d angelo and kendrick would be something else! I don't think we ready for that... that would need a new genre..!

    Donald Mokgale
