Do 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]
Break it to me gently
If you 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 shamed 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

[Repeat Chorus]

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

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
