Break it to me gently,
Let me down the easy way
Make me feel you still love me
If it's just, if it's just for one more day
Break it to me gently
So my tears, my tears won't fall too fast
If you must go, then go slowly,
Let me love you 'till the last

The love we shared, for oh so long
Is such a big part of me
If you must take your love away,
Take it gradually

Oh, oh, break it, break it to me gently,
Give me time, oh give me a little time to ease the pain
Love me just a little longer,
'Cause I'll never never love again

'Cause I'll never love again

    This song is about loving someone so much that you'd rather that they are happy even if it is without you. All you'd want is for them to be happy. And finally you are pleading with them to let you down/ or break it to you gently to get used to the idea/ or ease the pain and maybe love you just a little bit longer before they leave you.
