Is love behind me?  
Though I need you to satisfy me
Destiny will prove to divide me    
For you're a part of me
I feel the love within you
Your beauty lies deep within you
Touching me when you feel the need to
Become as one with me

Take you for granted?
That could never, never be
An advantage
All this love, and free from demanding
You have always felt the need to be pleased
And you stay close beside me
Though our minds are free for deciding
The life to lead and desiring
To see what they can see

Being around you
Lovely things I feel are about you
Being strong until I'm without you
For you're the strength in me
And you give me inspiration
Realizing that it has taken 
More love and more love makin'
To fulfill my every need
So for me

My love, let me down easy
If ever you were to leave
My love, let me down

Easy, baby
Oh-ho! Let me down, down, down, down, down, down easy
Hey, if ever, if ever, ever, ever you were to leave me
