Let me down easy

19 Nov

 

I don’t think there is a single song by Scottish singer songwriter Paolo Nutini that I couldn’t post in my ‘songs I like but you might not know’ series. I adore them all.

I have enjoyed his music enormously since his debut album ‘These Streets’ in 2006

This song is from his superb 2014 album ‘Caustic Love’. I guess it says something that we have all felt at some time. I hope you enjoy.

If you don’t know his music, do take some time to discover.

Let Me Down Easy
by Paolo Nutini
Let me down easy
Though your love for me is gone
Let me down easy
Since you feel that staying is wrong?
.
We are broken by others
But we mend ourselves
We take comfort in strangers
But I don’t think it helps
If every fool were a clown
I would be a king and not a clown
Cause love can’t?
Closer than our hands and our feet
.
But it’s lost on me
Oh oh
It’s lost on me
Your love for me is wrong
Let me down easy
since you feel that staying is wrong?
There was no sweeter fruit than this
With no taste of bitterness
It was so fresh and sweet before
But I can’t taste it anymore
.
I was like a man with no care
I had everything
But it’s lost
lost on me
Your love for me is wrong
Let me down easy
Your love for me is gone
Let me down easy
Since you feel that staying is wrong?
.
On a better day
we’d be waiting on our corner
Selling dreams of redemption
But this time you’ve gone your way
So I’ll go mine
Out of sight, out of love, out of time
Your love for me is wrong
.
Let me down easy
Your love for me is gone
Let me down easy
Since you feel that staying is wrong?
Let me down easy

    First time I’ve ever heard this, but it earned the first smile of the day. Sleep may wait while I explore a bit more. Thank you.
