Break it to me gently
Let me down the easy way
Make me feel you still love me
If it's just 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 'til 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.

And break it to me gently
Give me time oh give me a little time to ease the pain
If you must go then go slowly
Cos I'll never love again

If you must take your love away
Take it gradually

And 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 never love again.

Kiss today goodbye
The sweetness and the sorrow
We did what we had to do
And I can't regret what I did for love
What I did for love

Hey, look, my eyes are dry
The gift was ours to borrow
It's as if we always knew
But I won't forget what I did for love
What I did for love

Gone, love is never, never, never gone
As we travel on, sweet love's what we'll remember

Now, honey, kiss today good, ah, kiss and goodbye
And then point me, point me toward tomorrow
Wish me luck, would you do that, baby?
I do it for you

Can't forget (Can't forget)
And I won't regret (Won't regret)
What I did, what I did for love

Gone, love is never, ever, ever gone
As we travel on, sweet love's what we'll remember

Kiss today, kiss and goodbye
Point me toward tomorrow
And wish me luck, would you do that, baby?
I do the same, oooh, I do it for you, ah

Can't forget (Can't forget)
Won't regret (Won't regret)
What I did, what I did for love (Ooohooo)
What I did for love (Oooh)

What I did for love (Oooh)

Among the things that I love the most
Other than you, baby, there is obviously
Summer, winter, ooh, spring and fall
And those soft summer rain and thinking of you darling
And those first blossoms of springtime, picking early
And blossom in white like our love, you and me, baby, me and you

You and me in meadows of springtime
You and me laying in red
You and me in meadows of springtime
Making love at last, darling I love you, oh, how I love you

You and me, yeah, in meadows of springtime
You and me laying in red
You and me in meadows of springtime
Together in one

You know just how much I love you, yeah
And the things that you do ain't so wrong
Hey, you know it, you know it, you know it, you know it darling
You lend a way from, from the best part
Say you love me, say you need me, and then feel it, feel it in your heart

Oh, oh, you and me, you and me, you and me in meadows of springtime
Hey, just laying in the sun
You and me in meadows of springtime
Together in one, darling I love you, and oh, you know I love you

You and me, baby, in meadows, oh, meadows of springtime, eh eh
You and me laying in the sun, ooh
Together in one, eh, eh, eh

I love you, oh, I love you, yeah, I love you, I love you
In meadows, with the rose and daisies and sweet mess I'm in, eh, eh, yeah
You and me, you and me, you and me, baby
In meadows of springtime
