Bofill, Angela - Break It To Me Gently Lyrics

Did you think that your smile
Could hide what's on your mind?
No matter how I tried
I just couldn't be so blind
We've been close but people grow
And they sometimes grow apart
There's just one thing I ask you
If you've had a change of heart

(And) Break it to me gently
If ya have to, then tell me lies
Break it to me gently
At least leave me with my pride
Try to spare my feelings
If the feelings have to die
Break it to me gently
If you have to say goodbye

I'm not ashamed to admit
I really hurt inside
After all these are my feelings
Why should I make them hide?
But I won't hold you back
There'll be no pulling on your sleeve
Just let me down easy
And go softly when you leave

(And) Break it to me gently
If ya have to, then tell me lies
Break it to me gently
At least leave me with my pride
Try to spare my feelings
If the feelings have to die
Break it to me gently
If you have to say goodbye

You always knew that you had my heart
It's still yours, if you wanna take it
But when you go, as I know you must
Be gentle with your breaking

(And) Break it to me gently
If ya have to, then tell me lies
Break it to me gently
At least leave me with my pride
Trust me and my feelings
If the feelings have to die
Break it to me gently
If you have to say goodbye

Break it to me gently
If you have to say goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye...

  1. Rommel Gacute

    ganyan ginawa sken ng ex ko...
    pero ok lang yun mahalaga hindi ako ang gumawa ng mali sa kanya...
    mabuti nlang may nkilala ako na mas karapat dapat sa pagmamahal ko at nauunawaan ako palagi...

  4. buca117

    If you're that sure it's gonna happen, why are you making the guy do it? Break it to _him_ gently.

    You're just wasting everybody's time and energy, otherwise.

    First to spot a problem should always be the one to fix it.

  5. Hals Toni

    Break it to me gently.. That's deep😥
