Lady Down on Love

Album: The Closer You Get... (1983)
Charted: 76
  • It's her first night on the town, since she was just eighteen
    A lady down on love and out of hopes and dreams
    The ties that once bound her now are broke away
    And she's like a baby, just learning how to play

    She never thought that love could ever end so soon
    Her mind drifts back in time to a mid-summer moon
    When he asked her to marry and she gladly said O.K
    And a woman came to be from the girl of yesterday

    Now she's a lady down on love
    She needs somebody to gently pick her up
    She's got her freedom, but she'd rather be bound
    To a man who would love her and never let her down

    Well, I know the lady that's down on her love
    'Cause I used to hold her and have that special touch
    But work took me a way from home late at nights
    And I wasn't there when she turned out the lights
    Then both of us got lonely and I gave into lust
    And she just couldn't live with a man she couldn't trust

    Now she's a lady down on love
    She needs somebody to gently pick her up
    She's got her freedom, but she'd rather be bound
    To man who would love her and never let her down
    Now she's a lady down on love Writer/s: RANDY OWEN
