I could have searched the world
and never found you,
But just like in a dream you came to me;
Now every time I put my arms around you,
I know why loving you comes easily.

Easy, oh oh, easy,
That's how loving you was meant to be;
Easy, oh oh, easy,
Loving you comes so easy to me.

You look just like you were sent from heaven,
And the way you're loving me is so heavenly;
I never thought that love could be so easy,
And I know you're only easy with me.

Easy, oh oh, easy,
That's how loving you was meant to be;
Easy, oh oh, easy,
Loving you comes so easy to me.
Yes, loving you comes so easy to me.

This variant recorded by Eddie Eastman (Easy, trk#2, 1979 LP, Bel Air Records, Bramalea, Ontario, recorded at Woodland Studios, Nashville, Tennessee, produced by Bob Cousins and engineered by Rex Collier).

Eddie Eastman (born Edward Clive Rowsell, July 15, 1949, in Terra Nova, NL) is a Canadian country music singer-songwriter active from 1978 to 1992. Twenty-five of Eastman's singles made the RPM Country Tracks charts, including five which reached the Top Ten. Eastman won the Juno Award for Country Male Vocalist of the Year in 1981 and 1983. Eastman was inducted into the Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame in 2010 where the following biography can be found:

The youngest of ten children, Eddie Eastman was born Eddie Rowsell in Terra Nova, to a music-loving family. When he was nine, Eddie performed an impromptu living room concert for the construction crews building the Trans-Canada, who showed their appreciation with two-dollar bills, urging Eddie to keep playing till the wee hours of the morning. When young Eddie wasn't playing, he was listening to the radio or gramaphone and the sounds of country masters like Ernest Tubb, Johnny Cash and Merle Haggard.

In 1971, Eddie decided to explore the Trans-Canada on a full-time basis as the lead singer of the Country Ducats. In 1972, the group headed for Nashville to record an album, where Eddie was introduced to Elvis Presley band members Scotty Moore and D J Fontana (who played on the record).

After getting married in 1976, Eddie moved to Toronto, found management with Bob Cousins and recruited his new back-up band the Terra Nova Express. At Cousins' prompting, Eddie adopted Eastman as his professional name, which soon became a household name in Canada and scored numerous accolades, including two Top Male Vocalist JUNOs along the way. Eddie has recorded eight albums and has had 30 single releases which led to his own CBC TV program: The Eddie Eastman Show. Eddie and his family now reside in Tennessee where he continues to write and perform songs. After all the years of travelling the Trans-Canada, Eddie Eastman was inducted into the Canadian Country Music Hall of Honour in 2010.
