The song Easy was partly inspired by (and the first verse adapted from) a poem by a Bay area poet, Ellery Akers (from her book Knocking on the Earth, poem titled "Letter to Her Sister: Volcano, California, 1854), and partly melded into newness from bits of older songs like 'Summertime' and 'Only Water' (unreleased) with additional inspiration from a painting by Amy Allen. Imagery of tropical beaches, warm sun, fluffy clouds, daydreams, thoughts of stars as portals into other worlds, their light glimpsing back to us through cracks in the sky...

lyrics

from my window i can see
an oak with one star
like a heart caught in its bones
singing

so easy to be happy
how easy to be happy

high above the warm sand
lazy clouds roll by
angel takes me by the hand
thought melts from my mind
starlight twinkles to me
through cracks in the sky
singing

so easy to be happy
how easy to be happy

cool breeze lift me up
honey fill my cup
sunlight warm my skin
open up and let it in

so easy to be happy

so easy

from my window i can see
wild canary
