Well tender is the night
I wanna see you and I don’t know why
So honey could you bring me inside
Well I knew your name before but baby it got washed out by the shore
Honey it’s been too long I don’t remember anymore

And I remember watching you walk away
Like baby it was yesterday
Honey I could see it in your eyes there were no right things to say
And my memories are blurred like I’m watching it in reverse
But baby seeing your face brings me back to a better time

So now tender is the night
I wanna see you and I don’t know why
So honey could you bring me inside
And I remember conquering the night
Telling your parents all those lies
I remember the smell of the summer on your street

And what did I tell you
Did I muster up the truth?
Did I break your heart?
Or baby did you break mine?
Did I break your heart?

So now Nancy said not to cry
There’s no use not living your life
She’ll always love you
You can keep her in your heart

Oh tender is the night
I wanna see you and I don’t know why
So honey could you bring me inside
And I wouldn’t go back if could but maybe should
To say I’m sorry for things I said

Oh tender is the night
It was your birthday in July
And I remember every word we spoke
Yes I honey remember every word we spoke
Yes I remember every word we spoke
