about

One of Lex's early odes to the vocal stylings of Judy Garland and the upbeat fingerpicking swing of Hank Williams' hits, Land marries the two worlds with this sweet little number.

lyrics

You act like you wanna
but you say you don't
I'd even like to discuss it with ya
but you won't
yeah and half the time
you're on my mind
but it makes things go
a little more slowly, so...

if you like me, why don't you kiss me,
or let me down easy?
Won't you please,
please make it easy on me?
And if you want me, why don't you tell me,
or let me down easy?
Won't you please
make it easy on me?

I guess it's been a long time
so I'm hungry for love
and you know a little affection could
get the job done.
So won't you hold my hand
or be half a man
and tell me, honestly, how I
fit into your plans?

if you like me, why don't you kiss me,
or let me down easy?
Won't you please,
please make it easy on me?
And if you want me, why don't you tell me,
or let me down easy?
Won't you please
make it easy on me?

I'm not trying to push ya
but my heart is on my sleeve
and it's strange, since it's usually under lock and key
this isn't a game,
don't let me have taken it out in vain
don't make me sing another song
about how you're stringing me along!
