I held her close to me
Coz I know she breaks so easily
And then I told her
Though I knew no matter how I tried to console her
Then she'd do the best she could
But there are times the best is no damn good
And no matter how you try to be kind
There's always still a part of you you'll leave behind
When they fall apart
There's no easy way to break somebody's heart.

I lied and told her she'll be fine
Though we both knew it was just a lie
I had to do it
Coz I had said anything to help me get through it.
And she reached out for my hand
And her simple touch was more than I could stand
And I had to turn away coz I knew
All the hurt that she was feeling, I was feeling too
When they fall apart
There's no easy way to break somebody's heart.

She could've gotten angry
And made me feel like a guilty child
But I realized that never was her style
I wanted her to hurt me
And not treat me like a friend
I wanted her to say "there'd be someday
I'd come crawling on my knees to ask her back again"
But she acted like a lady till the end
Oh, what a lady!

I thought that she'd bring down
But she smiled at me and never made a sound
And I guess she understood in her way
Coz her silence told me everything she could not say
When they fall apart
There's easy way to break
There's just no easy way
There's no easy way to break somebody's heart...

    No matter how careful you are. When you're not happy in the relationship anymore, you'll gonna have to say it.
    In a relationship there's always someone who'll get hurt no matter what you do.
    So sugar coating it, isn't the way. Just say it as honestly as possible, the other person may resent you but i'm sure that person will forgive at some point of his/her life.

    The song there's no easy way means to me is that... There's a couple wherein the guy is breaking up with the girl... Instead of the girl cursing the guy of doing such thing to her after all the good things she has done to the guy... The girl is now a woman...

    Despite of the pain that the guy is causing to the girl, her love for him prevails and didn't try to get even. She just accepted gracefully as a decent lady would do.
