lyrics

Break it to me gently
Tell it to me slow
Don't be afraid to lie
just don't say you're gonna go
Turn my picture over
I'm not worth the frame
Call out in your passion
but don't you know
that's not my name

You don't even know my name

Break it to me gently
Rage will never rest
A doubting Thomas found the pen
locks my feelings up the best
Meet me after breakfast
find me in the night
choking back your passion
while flames lie dying in the light.

You don't even know I'm lost here.

This is what my dream is like
when my dream turns bad
and love's a lie
Love is like a desert island
that I can't leave
and you can't find
My love is like a desert island paradise
that you can't find

Break it to me gently
Tell it to me slow
Don't be afraid to lie
just don't say you're gonna go.

Break it to me gently
just don't say you're gonna go.
