Softly, gently, I will let you down
'Cause I don't love you in the same way now
I can hold you but not with lover's arms
'Cause you are more of a brother to me now
And I can lie next to you, but I can't lie to you

So walk into the sun and watch me
Run into the rain
For you the future's easy
So don't weep, for me it's getting
Steep

I loved you for exactly who you are
And I'd say you've come the nearest yet by far
And I can lie next tou you, but I can't lie to you

So walk into the sun and watch me
Run into the rain
For you the future's easy, so don't weep, for me it's getting

Steeper and in the dark that's where I want to be
Deeper, I'm going somewhere you won't want to see

So walk into the sun and watch me
Run into the rain
For you the future's easy, so don't weep
Yes I will watch you
Walk into the sun and watch me
Run into the rain drops
For you the future's easy, so don't weep
For me it's getting
Steep

    My InterpretationThe verses, to me, means that the singer's feelings for the person she's singing this to has changed and doesn't love them in a romantic way anymore.

    "For you the future's easy so don't weep, for me it's getting steep" - depression, perhaps

    "Steeper and in the dark that's where I want to be. Deeper, I'm going somewhere you won't want to see" - these words make me think that the composer is going into a deep depression and doesn't want the other person to see what that's like.

    General Commentthis song is about a woman falling out of love with a man. It doesn’t feel right anymore and she can no longer lie about her feelings. She wants to end the relationship because looking down the road, she sees her future with him is getting steep.
