Easy Living
Billie Holiday Lyrics


Living for you is easy living
It's easy to live when you're in love
And I'm so in love
There is nothing in life but you

I never regret the things that I'm giving
They're easy to give when you're in love
I'm happy to do whatever I do for you

For you maybe I'm a fool
But it's fun
People say you rule me with one wave of your hand
Darling, it's grand
They just don't understand

Living for you is easy living
It's easy to live when you're in love
And I'm so in love
There's nothing in life but you

For you maybe I'm a fool
But it's fun
People say you rule me with one wave of your hand
Baby, it's grand
They just don't understand

Living for you is easy living
It's easy to live when you're in love
And I'm so in love
There's nothing in life but you

Living for you is easy living
It's easy to live when you're in love
And I'm so in love
There is nothing in life but you

I never regret the years that I'm giving
They're easy to give when you're in love
I'm happy to do whatever I do for you

For you maybe I'm a fool
But it's fun
People say you rule me with one wave of your hand
Darling, it's grand
They just don't understand

Living for you is easy living
It's easy to live when you're in love
And I'm so in love
There's nothing in life but you

Living for you
is easy living
It's easy to live when you're in love
And I'm so in love
There is nothing in life but you

I never regret the years I'm giving
They're easy to give when you're in love
I'm happy to do whatever I do for you

For you maybe I'm a fool
But it's fun
People say you rule me with one wave of your hand
Darling, it's grand
They just don't understand

Living for you is easy living
It's easy to live when you're in love
And I'm so in love
There's nothing in life but you



James Smith

Living for you is easy living
It's easy to live when you're in love
And I'm so in love
There's nothing in life but you
I never regret the years that I'm giving
They're easy to give when you're in love
I'm happy to do, whatever I do for you
For you, maybe I'm a fool, but it's fun
People will say you rule me with one wave of your hand
Darling, it's grand, they just don't understand
Living for you is easy living
It's easy to live when you're in love
And I'm so in love
There's nothing in life but you

About over a year ago I was walking back home after contemplating suicide. I had just hung up a call with a friend of mine who had talked me out of it. It was a cold night, I remember crying so hard my eyes were soar. But somewhere in the distance, I hear this music playing. It was so beautiful and I swear, for a second, I felt the weight on my shoulders lift a little. I had to find out where the music was coming from, so I followed it. It lead me to this older gentleman’s garden. He was sitting there, on one of those little folding camping chairs with a rusty, old, radio resting on the arm chair. I said “Hi, sorry to bother you. Who is this?” And he looked at me bewildered. “It’s Billie Holiday!” he said. I thanked him and walked away. Billie Holiday. The name sounded familiar, but I’m ashamed to say that I never grew up listening to her. I immediately closed the tabs on my phone where I was searching for bridges to jump off of and went on YouTube to find a Billie Holiday compilation. I listened to it the whole way back. I listened to it as I fell asleep. Today was a rough day for me and it made me think about that awful day one year ago when I wanted to kill myself. Then I thought of this song. I thought about how much it soothed me. So now I’m here again. One year later. In a lot of ways, you can say that Billie Holiday saved my life. I hope for better days now.

Thank you for sharing that deeply personal story. I’m glad you’re still around to comment on videos and to experience new music with kind strangers. Hope all is well :)

@Chad Historian also, it wasn't meant to make people feel sorry. It was meant to how how poweful Billy's music can be.

Niko Leven

@Chad Historian one day, you'll learn your place. have a good day.

@Chad Historian if you don't care, then don't comment. Didn't your parents teach you not to be rude?
