Said and Done

Words and Music by Dan Rutledge

Hear 'Said and Done'

Verse 1
O I didn't share my heart with you.
You took it all the while I knew.
It was risky business, I was all undone,
'Cause your love was easier said than done.

I've seen the row of hearts you've spurned,
The lovers lost and the dreamers burned,
'Cause you've been lookin' after #1.
And your love was easier said than done.

Chorus 1
When love is easier said than done,
One gets hurt while the other has fun,
One is forever, one is "hit and run",
And your love was easier said than done.

Verse 2
O the sweet love that you took,
Like a mountain stream, or a meadow brook,
The signs of love that your heart gave,
Like rusted steel or a shallow grave.

My heart needs a love thats earned,
No shadow game, or blind-eye turned.
The body grows old while love stands fast.
With all said and done it's your love that will last.

Chorus 2
With all said and done, it's your love that will last,
Makes your future bright, makes you smile on the past,
It wraps up the present, makes the time go fast,
With all said and done, it's your love that will last.

Verse 3
The years roll by, the time is blurred,
You let your actions be your word,
You chose to stay, you didn't run,
And your love was easily said and done.

(And) the signs of love that your heart gave,
Make the weak grow strong, (and) the strong grow brave,
when two hearts grow together as one,
Love is easily said and done.

Chorus 3
When love is easily said and done,
Like an evening breeze or a morning sun,
Two hearts grow together as one,
When love is easily said and done.

Chorus 3
When love is easily said and done,
Like an evening breeze or a morning sun,
Two hearts grow together as one,
When love is easily said and done.

End
And I didn't share my heart with you,
I gave it all. What more could I do?
