Takes your order she yells/ it and cries alone in/
The backroom once in a while until it stops/ Then she smiles

So let her down easy if you must/ But let her down easy
Some of us are strong/ But the rest of us are weak
And go it alone/ So let us down easy if you must
But let us down easy, Lord/Let us down easy lord,
