It was so easy, baby
You made it so easy, yeah
You knew exactly
What to say and do

Had all the answers
Knew how to please me
How'd you guess I'd
Fall in love with you?

Now I'm scared
Wooh, I'm scared
What we're coming to

Oh, break it to me gently
Be careful of what you say
And save it, save it, save it
Save it, save it, save it
Save it for tomorrow

Maybe then you'll stay
One more day
Hey, yeah

It was so easy, baby
You made it so, so easy
Yes, you did
I'm weak now, darling
Need your tenderness

I gave you my loving
Oh baby, and all
My sweet music

Why'd you give me
What you knew I would need?
Are you sure, really, really sure
It has to end like this?

If you don't love me
If you don't need me

Break it to me gently
Oh, break it to me gently
Be careful of what you say
And save it, save it for tomorrow
Baby, baby, you stay, you stay

Oh, one more day
I need, I need you
I need you, baby
I need you, baby
One more hour

Oh, yeah, I need you
Oh, I need you
Ooh, baby, now
Now, now, now
One more day
