  • It was so easy baby, you made it so easy, yeah
    You knew exactly what to say and do
    Had all the answers, you knew how to please me
    How'd you guess I'd fall in love with you?
    Now I'm scared, oooh, I'm scared what we're coming to

    Oh, break it to me gently, be careful of what you say
    And save it, save it, save it
    Save it, save it, save it, save it for tomorrow
    Maybe then you'll stay one more day, hey yeah

    It was so easy, baby, you made it so so easy, yes, you did
    I'm weak now, darling, need your tenderness
    I gave you my loving, oh baby, and all my sweet music
    Why'd you give me what you knew I would need?

    Are you sure, really really sure it has to end like this?
    If you don't love me, if you don't need me

    Oh, break it to me gently, be careful of what you say
    And save it, save it for tomorrow
    Maybe, baby you'll stay, you'll stay, oh, one more day

    I need, I need you, I need you, baby
    I need you, baby, one more hour
    Oh yeah, I need you, oh I need you
    Oooh baby, now, now, now, now, now, now, now, now, now one more day

    Oh yeah, I need you, baby, I need you
    I need you, I need you, I need you one more hour
    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
    I need you, baby, one more day Writer/s: Carole Bayer Sager, Toni Wine
