Angela Bofill – Break It To Me Gently lyrics

Did you think that your smile
Could hide what's on your mind?
No matter how I tried
I just couldn't be so blind
We've been close but people grow,
And they sometimes grow apart
There's just one thing I ask you
If you've had a change of heart...

Chorus:
(And) Break it to me gently,
If ya have to, then tell me lies
Break it to me gently,
At least leave me with my pride
Try to spare my feelings
If the feelings have to die
Break it to me gently,
If you have to say goodbye

I'm not ashamed to admit
I really hurt inside
After all these are my feelings,
Why should I make them hide?
But I won't hold you back,
There'll be no pulling on your sleeve
Just let me down easy,
And go softly when you leave...

Chorus:
(And) Break it to me gently,
If ya have to, then tell me lies
Break it to me gently,
At least leave me with my pride
Try to spare my feelings
If the feelings have to die
Break it to me gently,
If you have to say goodbye

You always knew that you had my heart
It's still yours, if you wanna take it
But when you go, as I know you must,
Be gentle with your breaking

Chorus:
(And) Break it to me gently,
If ya have to, then tell me lies
Break it to me gently,
At least leave me with my pride
Trust me and my feelings
If the feelings have to die
Break it to me gently,
If you have to say goodbye

Break it to me gently,
If you have to say goodbye,
Goodbye
