It's her first night on the town
Since she was just eighteen
A lady down on love
And out of hope 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 glady 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 a lady
That's down on her love
'cause I used to hold her
And have that special touch.
But work took me away
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 will love her
And never let her down.

Now she's a lady
Down on love.
