"Tenderness" as written by and Rod Argent....
We did not ask how things were defined
Some pieces were missing but the puzzle looked fine
One day we looked up from inside a song
Something felt more right
Something was wrong

Shouldn't we regret love like this?
It's not a shame its tenderness
But we made a mess
And that is how we'll be remembered here
That is how we'll be remembered here

Months go by you with your wife
It takes time to disassemble a whole life
And I can't ask you for anything I take what I get
Aren't other people and saints more than I deserve
Or maybe it's true I don't deserve you

Should I regret a love like this?
It's not a shame its tenderness
But we made a mess
And that is how we'll be remembered here
That is how we'll be remembered here

It's the end of an era so unexpected
Clear as the line on the palm of your hand
You and I we started stumbling
Into the next dance we didn't plan this
Death of our friends in sand

We can't regret a love like this
It's not a shame its tenderness
But we made a mess
And that is how we'll be remembered here
That is how we'll be remembered here

    General CommentI think that this song is about a failed relationship. The narrator's ex now has a wife, but the narrator doesn't seem to be moving on. She's trying to figure out how she feels about their relationship: was it right? Was it wrong? I think that the lines about being remembered mean that society is judging her, so the ex might have been married to someone else while they were in love, or that their romance was forbidden for some other reason. This is a soft, tender song that I really love :)
