"Let Me Down Easy" as written by Jennifer Hanson, Mark Nesler and Martin Dodson....
There's a little moonlight dancing on the sand
There's a warm breeze blowing by the ocean as you're taking my hand
You need to know where I'm standing now
That I'm right on the edge of giving into ya
Baby it's a long way down

If I fall, can you let me down easy?
If I leave my heart with you tonight
Will you promise me that you're gonna treat it right?
I'm barely hangin' on
If I fall, can you let me down easy?

The scent of your perfume floatin' in the air
You're looking like an angel lying on a blanket with a halo of hair
And those lips look too good to be true
Once I taste that kiss, I know what'll happen
I'll be at the mercy of you

If I fall, can you let me down easy?
If I leave my heart with you tonight
Will you promise me that you're gonna treat it right?
I'm barely hangin' on
If I fall, can you let me down easy?

If I fall, can you let me down easy?
If I leave my heart with you tonight
Will you promise me that you're gonna treat it right?
I'm barely hangin' on
If I fall, can you let me down easy?

If I fall, can you let me down easy
Let me down easy baby

    General Commenthe's completely falling for this girl and he's iffy to give his full self to her because he's scared of falling madly in love with her and then him getting hurt.

    General CommentThis song is so sweet. He's trying to explain that he really likes/lives this gal but he is afraid to let himself fall in love with her because then he'll become "putty". =). He's completely in love with everything about her.... He's having a hard time deciding if it is "worth" risking the potential "hurt"....

    I'm sure alot of men feel this way...afraid to get hurt, like if it doesn't work out.
    "If I fall, can you let me down easy
    If I leave my heart with you tonight
    Will you promise me that you're gonna treat it right"

    But women feel like this too :)
    Great lyrics n song. Very heartfelt.
    When u fall in love your heart leads instead of your head! :)

    General Commentthis song is really adorableeeee!(:
    basically, he's saying that he's scared to fall for her, but if he does he wants her to let him down easy when things go sour.
    it ultimately comes down to risk vs reward.
    if the reward is greater than the risk, go for it.
    such a sweet song[:
