Verse One:
She doesn't need another love affair
She needs some time to work things out
You say you'll never let her down
But don't blame her for having doubts

Verse Two:
She doesn't need another love affair
She needs some time to dry those eyes
There's still a lot that she won't share
You've only got to realise

Bridge One:
She's not saying that she won't be there for you
Too many times it's all gone wrong
Take your time but don't lose sight of all your dreams
They may come true before too long

Verse Three:
She doesn't need another love affair
She needs support and understanding
No more castles in the air
She needs a life that's less demanding

Bridge Two:
So while your wondering if she might be there for you
And know you cannot live without her
Accept the fact that she needs time to come to terms
With the life she has about her

Verse Four:
She doesn't need another love affair
She needs to laugh, she needs to smile
It's not that she won't love again
It may just take a little while

Shades of Jim Webb !
Some lovely chord changes along the way , no more castles in the air , is a great line .

another nice shot the artist delivers a velvety performance

I really like the voice of the lead singer. Sort of one of those scenes when a guy has to chose to either pursue a young lady, or let her pursue her dreams, and recuperate from a previous relationship. I also like the soft background vocals.
