"Gentle" as written by and Matthew Nicholas/brown Hales....
This is not the time to wonder why
Just let the hardened mind be still for just some time
This is the time for the rest
Just let it go, you know it's for the best

If you're fragile, and you're delicate,
Take my hand but be gentle with me please
Let the river flow, washin' over me
For a while, but be gentle with me please
Be gentle with me please.

This is not the time to compromise
If you're feelin' it, too
Then you've realized
This is the time for a change
Yes, you know it's true
Deep down within you

If you're fragile, and you're delicate
Take my hand but be gentle with me please
Let the river flow, washin' over me
For a while, but be gentle with me please.
Be gentle with me please.

If you're fragile, and you're delicate
Take my hand but be gentle with me please
Let the river flow, washin' over me
For a while, but be gentle with me please

Be gentle with me please (let the river flow)
Be gentle with me please (let the river flow)
Be gentle with me please.

    General Commentthis song is so pretty.

    i guess all it's saying is he is just wanting the girl to be gentle with him. He doesn't want her to hurt him, physically and mentally?

    it just makes me think of a guy in my life right now, and it's just sweet to think about him thinking this about me. "Be gentle with me please" Just admitting that he's a man, but it doesn't matter, you have to be gentle with me.

    General CommentYeah I think he's been broken hearted before and really just wants to take it slow and spare himself heart ache again.. he wants to do things right and be delicate with it.
