It's not my way to love you just when no one's looking
It's not my way to take your hand if I'm not sure
It's not my way to let you see what's going on inside of me
When it's a love you won't be needing, you're not free.

Please stop pulling at my sleeve if you're just playing
If you won't take the things you make me want to give,
I never cared too much for games,
and this one's driving me insane.
You're not half as free to wander as you claim.
But I'm easy,
yeah, I'm easy,
Give the word and I'll play your game.
So that's how it ought to be,
Because I'm easy.

Don't lead me on if there's nowhere for you to take me,
if loving you would have to be a sometime thing.
I can't put bars on my insides.
My love is something I can't hide.
It still hurts when I recall the times I've tried.
But I'm easy,
yeah, I'm easy,
Take my hand and pull me down,
I won't put up any fight
Because I'm easy

Don't do me favors, let me watch you from a distance,
'Cause when you're near, I find it hard to keep my head
And when your eyes throw light at mine
It's enough to change my mind
Make me leave my cautious words and ways behind
That's why I'm easy
Ya, I'm easy
Say you want me, I'll come running
Without taking time to think,
Because I'm easy
Ya, I'm easy,
Take my hand and pull me down,
I won't put up any fight,
Because I'm easy,
Ya, I'm easy
Give the word, I'll play your game
So that's how it ought to be
Because I'm easy.

Creo que cada vez más, nos quedará la nostalgia.

...de la nostalgia, como terapia.
como (último) recurso.

Qué raro lo de Carradine tan famoso y tan rapidamente olvidado. Esta canción y su "Choose me" están entre mis mejores recuerdos.
Un abrazo

creo que me enamoré de Keith Carradine en Choose me, pero mucho, de caer rendido. le vi en todo lo que pude: en esta especie de trilogía, o así la viví yo, que forma con Trouble in Mind y Los Modernos, la otra peli de Alan Rudolph que me gustó muchísimo.
ahora también le recuerdo en Los amantes de María, o en The Ballad of the Sad Cafe, aunque esta última hay que verla por Vanessa Redgrave.
es cierto que no ha envejecido del todo bien, tpc mal, que yo lo sigo viendo muy apetecible en Dexter, ...llámame cerdo.
creo que anda refugiado en la TV.
no le vendría nada mal un Tarantino, es mejor actor que su hermano David.
