Let Her Down Easy

Album: Symphonica (2014)
Charted: 53
  • You're top man on scene
    You don't think life comes in between
    But hey, she's just seventeen
    She feels like she's a worldly girl
    But man you've been around the world
    She is just some worried daddy's girl
    Even though there's nothing I can say
    To cheat you and nature any way

    Let her down easy
    Her heart is on a dime
    Let her down easy
    And she'll grow up in time

    In her strawberry eyes
    The way she sees you signifies
    That she's susceptible to your velvet lies
    But if you must lay her down
    May a butterscotch glow be her dressing gown
    Please do not lead her on when, oh when you leave town
    Even though there's nothing I can say
    To cheat you and nature any way

    Let her down easy
    Her heart is on the line
    Let her down easy
    And you'll grow up in time

    She's a woman now
    With a daughter to make her proud
    In her crayon world of paper clouds
    She still remembers you
    The first boy that she gave it to
    And she laughs at how little then she knew
    Even though there's nothing I can say
    To cheat you and nature any way

    Let her down easy
    Her heart is on a dime
    Let her down easy
    And she'll grow up in time
    Whoa in time Writer/s: TERENCE TRENT D'ARBY

  • Victoria Ana-tolian Semenenko 02.10.1976 from UkraineDespite I am actually agree with Voltaire purpose exposed at the end of video regarding virginity but never believed that it loss should ever be really too much brutal as George executed that to me.

    Of course don't mean literally personally by him but as well by his causal manipulation of my life exposed in "Fastlove" video. As especially obvious from "Jesus To A Child" official video (1996).
  • Viktoria Semenenko from UkraineAnd this song is about absolutely real but as well very sad story that happened to me beginning of 1993...
