Let Me Down Gently

Let me down gently

That’s what I think I need

But when you let me down gently

It still feels hard, hard

Turn me into someone good

That’s what I really need

Tell me that I’m someone good

So we’re not so far apart, apart

Set me up slowly

That’s what you do to me

Oh you set me up slowly

Now I can’t come down, down

Let you down gently

That’s what I think you need

But when I let you down you’re empty

And you try to hide your frowns, frowns

I hope it doesn’t seem like I’m young, foolish and green

Let me in for a minute

You’re not my life but I want you in it

And I hope it’s sinking in

That behind your perfect skin

There’s a part of you that’s free

And I know that there’s a place for me

Let me down gently

That’s what I think I need

But when you let me down gently

It still feels hard, hard

Turn me into someone good

That’s what I really need

Tell me that I’m someone good

So we’re not so far apart, apart

I hope it doesn’t seem like I’m young and foolish and green

Let me in for a minute

You’re not my life but I want you in it

And I hope it’s sinking in

That behind your perfect skin

There’s a part of you that’s free

And I know that there’s a place for me
