"Gently Tender" as written by and Mike Heron....
Gently tender falls the rain
Washing clean the slate again
But leave me please, behind my brain
This light doesn't shadow on her

Shadows dancing through the pink milk blankets
Where my mind lay dreaming gently of my loving you
Sometimes I think I was true
But then I loved the stone beneath my feet as much, usually

Gently tender snow-drop grows
See the past tense quietly go
Kill the chord but let me know
This light doesn't shadow on her

Shadows dancing through the green bush trees
Where my toes crept breathing lightly of my loving you
Sometimes I think I was true
But then I loved the stone beneath my feet as much, usually

Slowly spitting crawls the snake
See the branches bend and break
Venom that might easily shake
This light doesn't shadow on her

Good, good loving, she gave me good loving
Good, good loving, she gave me good loving
Good, good loving, she gave me good
And now all my wine is water
To her all my wine is water
All water, and my pearls are clear

Good, good loving, she gave me good
Good, good loving, she gave me good
Good, good loving, she gave me good
And now all my wine is water
To her all my wine is water
All water, and my pearls are clear

She gave to me good loving
She gave to me good loving
She gave to me good loving
Ohh good loving
