"Tender Years [Original Recording]" as written by and Ross/bare....
You keep saying you love him
I believe that it's true
And it just doesn't matter
How much I love you

But in time you'll understand, dear
When you shed a tear
Then you'll know you were living
In your tender years (tender years)

In your eyes there's a love light
That's shining for him
But how long will it stay there?
Will that love light grow dim?

You can just see the happiness
You can't see the tears
It's true, 'cause you're living
In your tender years (tender years)

So if I can't be your first love
I'll wait and be your last
I'll be somewhere in your future
To help you forget the past

And you'll know that I love you
With a love that's sincere
'Cause I'll wait till you're through living
In your tender years (tender years)

Yes, you'll know that I love you
With a love that's sincere
Yes, I'll wait till you're through living
In your tender years (tender years)
