What You Won't Find In A Christian Bookstore

As a teenager in the 80’s one of my favorite songs was “Easy Lover” by Phil Collins & Philip Bailey. Little did I know the tune would revisit me in later days with a whole new application. The song is a warning not to give your heart to a certain unfaithful and deceptive woman (who is the subject of the song). The song also works perfectly as a warning not to play around with the false church. It looks so inviting, but its ways are deceptive and will end up placing you under its spell and control (i.e. “before you know it you’ll be on your knees”). My favorite line in the song is, “No don’t try to change her, just leave it, leave it… You’re not the only one, ooh seeing is believing. It’s the only way you’ll ever know, oh”.

Listen to this song again (or for the first time if you’ve never heard it before) and take a look at the lyrics. If you’re reading this and are still heavily involved in church but have been feeling a troubling disconnect inside (a sort of holy discontentment with religion), it may be that you are hearing the Lord call to you to come away from this “woman”. If so, this song is dedicated to you.

Revelation 18:4-5 (GNB) – Then I heard another voice from heaven, saying, “Come out, my people! Come out from her! You must not take part in her sins; you must not share in her punishment! For her sins are piled up as high as heaven, and God remembers her wicked ways.”

Phil Collins & Philip Bailey – Easy Lover

“EASY LOVER”
by Phil Collins & Philip Bailey

Easy lover
She’ll get a hold on you believe it
Like no other
Before you know it you’ll be on your knees
She’s an easy lover
She’ll take your heart but you won’t feel it
She’s like no other
And I’m just trying to make you see

She’s the kind of girl you dream of
Dream of keeping hold of
You’d better forget it
You’ll never get it
She will play around and leave you
Leave you and deceive you
Better forget it
Oh you’ll regret it

No you’ll never change her, so leave it, leave it
Get out quick cos seeing is believing
It’s the only way
You’ll ever know

Easy lover
She’ll get a hold on you believe it
Like no other
Before you know it you’ll be on your knees
She’s an easy lover
She’ll take your heart but you won’t feel it
She’s like no other
And I’m just trying to make you see

You’re the one that wants to hold her
Hold her and control her
You’d better forget it
You’ll never get it
For she’ll say there’s no other
Till she finds another
Better forget it
Oh you’ll regret it

And don’t try to change her, just leave it, leave it
You’re not the only one, ooh seeing is believing
It’s the only way
You’ll ever know, oh

No don’t try to change her, just leave it, leave it
You’re not the only one, ooh seeing is believing
It’s the only way
You’ll ever know, oh

She’s an easy lover (she’s a easy lover)
She’ll get a hold on you believe it (get a hold on you)
(She’s) like no other
Before you know it you’ll be on your knees (you’ll be down on your knees)
She’s an easy lover
She’ll take your heart but you won’t feel it (you won’t feel it)
She’s like no other
And I’m just trying to make you see (trying to make you see)
