Gene Watson – Speak Softly Lyrics

When you finally tell me what I know is on your mind
Don’t cry, don’t let those teardrops start
Just tell me that you’re leaving and you’ll be gone for good
But speak softly, you’re talking to my heart

True love is a treasure that few men ever find
I thought that I’d found it from the start
Now it’s over, it’s so over
Only a fool would stay to watch it fall apart

How I tried to change your mind
I sold my soul, lost my pride
What’s that reflection in your eyes
Is it your plan to love another man?

How I tried to change your mind
I sold my soul, lost my pride
What’s that reflection in your eyes
Is it your plan to love another man?

When you finally tell me what I know is on your mind
Don’t cry, don’t let those teardrops start
Just tell me that you’re leaving and you’ll be gone for good
But speak softly, you’re talking to my heart
But speak softly, you’re talking to my heart
