  • Hey, oh

    Oh when it rains it always pours
    But I have found a friend in Noah
    Still the dogs they bite and it's cold at night
    And the sharks deep in the water
    There's more of us than ever
    But we're just lonely altogether
    So baby, reach out and remind me that it's real

    I need you to love me tenderly
    I need you to touch me gentle, please
    'Cause it's cold out there
    It's tough enough
    So baby, love me tenderly

    Oh it's a roller coaster ride
    We all need someone to hold onto
    A friend who understands exactly what we must be going for
    If you can trust a stranger
    And go on reach out touch your neighbor
    And do your best to let them know they're not alone

    Why don't you just love me tenderly?
    Why don't you just touch me gentle? Please
    'Cause it's cold out there
    And they like to play rough
    So baby, love me tenderly

    Oh please, just close the door behind you, dear
    Oh don't you let the cold inside of here
    No I don't wanna talk about it
    Heard just quite enough about it
    Baby, won't you take me outta here?

    Come on and love me tenderly
    How about you touch me gentle, please
    'Cause it's cold out there
    It's tough enough
    So baby, love me tenderly
    Why don't you just love me tenderly?
    Love me gentle, please
    'Cause it's cold out there
    And they like to play rough
    So baby, love me tenderly

    Love me, love me, love me, love me
    Love me, love me, love me, love me, love me

    Baby, love me tenderly Writer/s: EMELI SANDE, JOEL SANDE, MATTHEW HOLMES, PHILIP LEIGH
