Lyrics to "Sweet Tenderness"

Before the time has slipped away

Before we lose another day

There's a place I want to be

I'm there when you are holding me


There's a window in the night

That brings my dreams into the light

It's not often dreams come true

They do when I am here with you




I used to have all these big ideas

High ideals and such

But every time I'm here with you

They don't mean that much


I need to leave my porcelain tower

Let's go where we can talk for hours

It's time to come down from this perch

And I can finally end my search
