I don’t just like you cos you’ve got a nice arse
But I can tell you right now that’s a big plus
I don’t just need you cos I’m a downhearted man
But I can tell you right now, that’s part of the plan
I like your easy lovin
Won’t you have a drink with me

I can’t promise no sad-eyed heart break
But I’ve got a proposition to make
You ditch the wine, I’ll ditch the wife
And we can start talking bout the rest of our lives
I like your easy lovin
Won’t you have this dance with me

I like your easy Lovin
I like your easy Lovin
I like your easy Lovin
I like your easy Lovin
Won’t you spend this night with me

I might be too old or you might be too young
But I’m not too old to find a new love
It might be cruel or morally wrong
But I can’t help cos I love someone
I like your easy Lovin
Won’t you spend this night with me

I like your easy Lovin
I like your easy Lovin
I like your easy Lovin
I like your easy Lovin
Won’t you spend the rest of your life with me

I ain’t afraid of crying, I ain’t afraid of crying

I ain’t afraid of weeping and missing out on sleeping

If that means that you come on back to me

 

Remember when I held you, the night your mother died

I brought you whiskey and tissues, while you just sat there and cried

And if the light had been better, you would have seen me cry too

 

I ain’t afraid of crying, I ain’t afraid of crying

I ain’t afraid of weeping and missing out on sleeping

If that means that you come on back to me

 

How could you throw away these moments, how could they mean nothing to you anymore?

But you pack them into your suitcases and cart them out the door

And you take out your $175 rent for the week and walk on out the door

 

I ain’t afraid of crying, I ain’t afraid of crying

I ain’t afraid of weeping and missing out on sleeping

If that means that you come on back to me

 

Well I told you once, now I’m telling you twice

The bravest men aren’t afraid to cry

You’ve made it clear, that you’re no longer mine

Now my favourite girl is a bottle of wine

Oh no now baby, I ain’t afraid of crying

 

I ain’t afraid of crying, I ain’t afraid of crying

I ain’t afraid of weeping and missing out on sleeping

If that means that you come on back to me
