You act like you want to but you say you don't.
I'd even like to discuss it with you but you won't.
Yeah and half the time you're on my mind and it makes things go a little more slowly, so...

if you like me, why don't you kiss me,
or let me down easy? won't you please?
Oh, please make it easy on me!
And if you want me, you should just tell me,
or let me down easy!
Won't you please make it easy on me?

I guess it's been a long time, so I'm hungry for love,
and you know a little affection could get the job done.
So won't you hold my hand, or be half a man,
and tell me honestly how I fit into your plans?

I'm not trying to push you but my heart is on my sleeve,
and it's strange, since it's usually under lock and key.
This isn't a game! Don't let me have taken it out in vain!
Don't make me sing another song
about how you're stringing me along.

    i had just learned of dexter's daughter a few minutes ago after reading his wikipedia entry (which i decided to visit since i was listening to "gone away"), and i must say, although it's a different style of music than her old man, i'm really digging these tunes, musically and lyrically. my two cents on the meaning: seems pretty obvious to me, a plea to make love/relationships easy, as opposed to complicated with problems and some people who just like to string others along. basically if you like someone then do something about it, but don't do it unless you mean it.
