  • Tender is the night
    Lying by your side
    Tender is the touch
    Of someone that you love too much
    Tender is the day
    The demons go away
    Lord I need to find
    Someone who can heal my mind

    Come on, come on, come on
    Get through it
    Come on, come on, come on
    Love's the greatest thing
    Come on, come on, come on
    Get through it
    Come on, come on, come on
    Love's the greatest thing
    That we have
    I'm waiting for that feeling
    I'm waiting for that feeling
    Waiting for that feeling to come

    Oh my baby
    Oh my baby
    Oh why
    Oh my

    Oh my baby
    Oh my baby
    Oh why
    Oh my

    Tender is the ghost
    The ghost I love the most
    Hiding from the sun
    Waiting for the night to come
    Tender is my heart
    I'm screwing up my life
    Lord I need to find
    Someone who can heal my mind

    Come on, come on, come on
    Get through it
    Come on, come on, come on
    Love's the greatest thing
    Come on, come on, come on
    Get through it
    Come on, come on, come on
    Love's the greatest thing
    That we have
    I'm waiting for that feeling
    I'm waiting for that feeling
    Waiting for that feeling to come

    Oh my baby

    Love's the greatest thing
    Come on, come on, come on
    Get through it
    Come on, come on, come on
    Love's the greatest thing
    That we have
    I'm waiting for that feeling
    I'm waiting for that feeling
    Waiting for that feeling to come
