It Ain't Easy
Jason Aldean Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Interesting Facts ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I walk a hard line, winding road
Don't really know where it's gonna go
Seems like trouble's my best friend
Soon as I get out, I'm back in again
It's a wonder, I ain't all alone

'Cause it ain't easy
No, it ain't easy
It ain't easy
Lovin' me

Don't know why I do the things I do
Must be I love to light the fuse
Stand back and watch it crash and burn
And turn into ash
Just like it ain't nothing
She ain't something I can lose

'Cause it ain't easy
No, it ain't easy
It ain't easy
Lovin' me

She's the brick by brick that built this house
Without her it would all fall down
Somehow she finds the faith and the strength to believe
Don't know why she sticks around

'Cause it ain't easy
No, it ain't easy
It ain't easy
Lovin' me

'Cause it ain't easy
No, it ain't easy




It ain't easy
Lovin' me

Overall Meaning

Throughout the verses, Aldean sings about his personal struggles and the consequences they have on his relationships, admitting that his tendency to self-sabotage has led to a string of failed connections. He laments that he cannot explain why he does the things he does, but suggests that he gets some sort of satisfaction out of causing chaos and watching everything burn to the ground. Despite all this, the chorus serves as a reminder that this woman is still sticking around, even though it's no easy feat to try and love someone who seems to be constantly in turmoil.
