to make it easier on you lyrics – thelma houston

it’s a game,
at times quite realistic,
but a game all the same,
somebody wins and somebody loses,
it all depends on whoever choses,
to take it most seriously.

but none of this matters to you babe,
this little pantomime of mine,
would only bore you,
you don’t know if i’m,
only going through the motions,
to make it easier for you babe,
when you decide it’s over.

it’s a play,
not written very well,
but it’s a play anyway,
someones a hero and someones the villain,
it all depends on whoever’s willing,
to give themselves unselfishly.

but none of this matters to you babe,
this little pantomime of mine,
would only bore you,
for you don’t know if i’m,
only going through the motions,
to make it easier for you babe,
when you decide it’s over.

we walk the laughing way,
pretending not to feel,
pretending it’s not real,
and we don’t matter either way.

at least that’s what i say,
to give you no excuse,
to tremble us before you need to,
to make sure when you do,
you won’t know that,
i need you.

it’s a show,
not always entertaining,
but a show even so,
someone’s a star and someone’s a stand-in,
some have their handouts, some have their hand-ins,
and some people need both hands free.

but none of this matters to you babe,
this little pantomime of mine,
would only bore you,
you don’t know if i’m,
only going through the motions,
to make it easier for you babe,
when you decide it’s over.
i’m gonna try to make it,
easier for you baby,
when you decide it’s all over.

[spoken]
if i could say a gentle word,
to make the inevitable p*ssing of our love seem a little less final.
knowing that the heart can’t help growing colder.
if i could bear the pain and bitterness of our last goodbye,
and let you remember the first sweet h*llo,
it would make it all worthwhile for me.
[——-]

if i could just,
make it easier for you babe,
i wanna make it easier for you,
yes i do,

so you can just tell everybody everywhere,
i’m gonna try to make it easier for you,
i ain’t gonna shed some tears baby, no no,
when you walk through that door,
i ain’t gonna cry, no no,
i’m gonna make it easier for you.
