Easier For Me
Harry Nilsson Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Nobody loved her, it was easy to see
That made it easier for me
The boys never fought over her company
That made it easy for me

Love so bright could only blind us
How could reason hope to find us
Hiding in the milkyway
Without a star to shine the way?

Sandcastles fell from the tears in our eyes
That made it easier to see




Now the dream's over and I realize
That makes it easy for me

Overall Meaning

In Harry Nilsson's song, Easier For Me, he sings about a girl who was never loved by anyone, and how that made it easier for him to love her. The opening lines, "Nobody loved her, it was easy to see, that made it easier for me" shows how her lack of love had made her more approachable to Harry. He goes on to mention how the boys never fought over her, indicating that she was not seen as desirable, which made it easier for him to be with her.


The second verse talks about how intense love can sometimes blind us, and reason becomes irrelevant, leading to the two of them getting lost in their own world. They were lost without any guidance, and Harry uses the imagery of being in the milky way without a star to shine the way. The final verse talks about how their love was like a sandcastle that fell apart when reality hit, and that made it easier for him to see that the dream was over. He has finally realized that he needs to move on, and the lack of any real connection with the girl makes it easier for him to do so.
