  • Tender was my lover from the suburbs of town
    We were sweethearts from college she was always around
    We were good for each other but some things they just don't work out

    There were tears in my eyes when she walked away
    We had plans to get married some day
    But the promises were broken before they were even made

    Now I'm dancing with a broken heart
    Ain't no doctor who can make it start
    Singing these are the words that I'm never gonna say again
    'Cause I've given till I've given up
    One more casualty of easy love
    Singing these are the words that I'm never gonna say again

    Tender was my lover, God I miss her embrace
    And I wonder who it is, that puts a smile on her face
    I recall the way she feels and oh I recall the way she tastes
    If I could hold her now then all that I'd see
    Remind me of childhood memories
    She was the first day of summer,
    Yeah that girl, that girl's for me, yeah

    Now I'm dancing with a broken heart
    Ain't no doctor who can make it start
    Singing these are the words that I'm never gonna say again

    'Cause I've given till I've given up
    One more casualty of easy love
    Singing these are the words that I'm never gonna say again

    And these are the words that I say to your picture
    These are the words that I say in a dream
    These are the words that I wish I'd said to you
    When you were standing here next to me

    'Cause I've given till I've given up
    One more casualty of easy love
    Singing these are the words that I'm never gonna say again

    Oh now I'm dancing with a broken heart
    Ain't no doctor who can make it start
    Singing these are the words that I'm never gonna say again

    Now I'm dancing with a broken heart
    Ain't no doctor who can make it start
    Singing these are the words that I'm never gonna say again Writer/s: JAMES BLOUNT, STEPHEN ROBSON, STEVE ROBSON, WAYNE HECTOR
