  • I know sometimes you need me to be tender
    I don't give you much to go on
    So I'm amazed at how you hold on to me
    Baby girl I've never been this close before
    Never opened up that door
    I'm still finding my way

    Something else that lovers do
    When I've been by myself
    Never had to talk about
    Movin' in with someone else

    Then you kiss my face
    And it makes me smile
    Girl I want to lay with you,
    Right here with you
    For a little while
    When I feel that rush
    Coming down all over me
    You're as fast as I can see
    That's tender as I wanna be
    Tender as I wanna be
    Girl it's so tender

    No maybe it's that hard
    To find someone to please me
    Or it could be that real true love
    Sometimes don't come easy
    No it don't come easy
