Tenderly
Jack Lawrence / Walter Gross // 1946

The evening breeze caressed the trees tenderly
The trembling trees embraced the breeze tenderly
Then you and I came wandering by
And lost in a sigh were we

The shore was kissed by sea and mist tenderly
I can't forget how two hearts met breathlessly
Your arms opened wide and closed me inside
You took my lips, you took my love so tenderly

Your arms opened wide and closed me inside
You took my lips
You took my love
So tenderly
