Make It Easy on Yourself
by Jerry Butler

'Cause breaking up is so
Very hard to do

If you really love her
And there's nothing I can do
Don't try to spare my feelings
Just tell me that we're through

And make it easy on yourself
Make it easy on yourself
'Cause breaking up is so very hard to do

And if the way I hold you
Can't compare to her caress
No words of consolation
Will make me miss you less

And my darling, if this is goodbye
I just know I'm gonna cry
So run to her
Before you start crying too

And make it easy on yourself
Make it easy on yourself
'Cause breaking up is so very hard to do

And make it easy on yourself
Make it easy on yourself
'Cause breaking up is so very hard to do

And make it easy on yourself

@Mark Bruggeman i was thinking what about Sinatra?? His voice was butter!!!
Talking about Marvin Gaye era i have to say i really really Love Marvin😍 but Teddy Pendergrass's Voice just stood out, his voice is like platinum!!! 😍🥰Every then and now i get lost in thoes oldies and its the best because it makes me feel like there is so much more to life, im only 29, but i feel like there was so much more to music back then, at least i got to grow up on some 60's, 70's, 80's, 90's stuff cuz my Father and Mother always had beautiful taste in music, it has given me an old soul and i wont change a thing about it!!!!
Ps: i know im outta lane, but my Dad bought me 2Pac's All Eyez On Me double disc album when i was 5 and hell yeah im proud of it 🤩🤩
Y'all have a good one, blessings! 🙏🏾

He's also my uncle!! I just called him 2 days ago because I heard 'Moon River' on xm radio and remembered that the 'Moon river' thread on youtube had so many kind words about him on it. I told him how much people still enjoyed his music and he said he "really appreciated it" and to tell the people "thank you".

A beautiful soulful belter! You can hear the cry in his voice! Exquisite!


I am just starting a Reverse Speech program and the first song I "reversed" was Jerry Butler's "He will break your heart." If you think these songs are heartbreaking in "forward," you should hear them in reverse! I am convinced Butler was truly in love with someone and really was crushed when she started up with someone else. I was in tears. Heart-rending....
