lyrics

Let Me Down Easy - Raina Rose

Oh how you wander so unladen, so unladen
wilting under the weight of the summer sun.
Sun will come, some will come and
some will leave you lonely
Asking only for you to love ‘em
Just because, just because

Oh Lord, let me down easy… let me down easy
Oh Lord, let me down easy when I go (2)

How you wander so uncertain, so uncertain
Drawing the curtain on a waiting world
Times are hard, times are hard
To strengthen up your shoulders.
sometimes you’ve gotta move the stones
and see the way unfurled, the way unfurled

Oh Lord, let me down easy… let me down easy
Oh Lord, let me down easy when I go (2)

And we’re just souls sinews and bones
and great rivers of blood
You’ve got a black stage, you’ve got a blank page
and our hearts have a floadgate

and we wake each day
we remember the drought
and we remember the rain

Oh how you rise up so unbroken, so unbroken
each word left unspoken flies away on tattooed wings
How you sing, how you sing
like a heron in the night smoke
quiet as a holy ghost
promising, promising, promising…

Oh Lord, let me down easy… let me down easy
Oh Lord, let me down easy when I go (3)

Drawing influences from contemporary urban balladeers, rowdy southern bluegrass, and the sardonic yet wry wit of New England's localized folk scenes, Pesky J. Nixon (PJN) creates an atmosphere both inviting and challenging for audiences. ... more
