It's her first night on the town
Since she was just 18
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 learnin' 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 okay
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 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 a man who would love her
And never let her down

Now she's a lady
Down on love
