"Softly" as written by and Mary Holladay (holly)/roboff Lamar....
I remember that kiss in a cold world, oh, girl
Sunlight fell from your lips
Tenderly you shattered me
Somehow you touched me like no one else
Slipped into my soul like a prayer

Baby, with the sweetest kiss
You came along and stole my breath
Tore down my defenses with a whisper
Oh, you showed me how love can be
You broke through to my heart
Softly, baby, softly

You're like God in this world, fragile, beautiful
There's so much trust in your eyes
They make me remember blue skies and sunshine
I want to be what you see in me
I want to love you the way that you love me

Baby, with the sweetest kiss
You came along and stole my breath
Tore down my defenses with a whisper
Oh, you show me how love can be
You broke through to my heart
Softly

I don't want to be that strong if it means being alone
I want to stay with you where I belong
And let you show me just how good love can be
You break through to my heart
Softly, baby, softly
Softly, baby, softly
