she’s a lady down on love lyrics – alabama

it’s her first night on the town
since she was just 18
a lady down on love
and out of hope and dreams

the ties that once bound her
now are broke away
and she’s like a baby
just learnin’ how to play

she never thought that love
could ever end so soon
her mind drifts back in time
to a mid summer moon

when he asked her to marry
and she gladly said okay
and a woman came to be
from the girl of yesterday

now she’s a lady
down on love
she needs somebody
to gently pick her up

she’s got her freedom
but she’d rather be bound
to a man who would love her
and never let her down

well, i know the lady
that’s down on her love
’cause i used to hold her
and have that special touch

but work took me away
from home late at nights
and i wasn’t there
when she turned out the lights

then both of us got lonely
and i gave into l*st
and she just couldn’t live
with a man she couldn’t trust

now she’s a lady
down on love
she needs somebody
to gently pick her up

she’s got her freedom
but she’d rather be bound
to a man who would love her
and never let her down

now she’s a lady
down on love
