She tried to show me hw to love
I bit her lips and bruised her arms
No I hadn't learned Tenderness
She asked "what does love mean to you?"
I grabbed her hair and pulled her down
I looked in her eyes and laughed
The love I feel is hard and fast
It's for a face and for one night
I don't need to own anyone

She said, she said all your women burn in your flame
And as it dies, as it dies, they'll leave you and seek revenge

She laughed and said "You'll go through hell
You'll live in lonely rooms unknown
And watch for my lost Tenderness"
I went from her to someone else and someone else
No, I couldn't be satisfied

She said, she said all you women burn in your flame
And as it dies, as it dies, they'll leave you and seek revenge

I wish that I could find her now
My love is soft, my love is warm
I'd take her to bed tenderly
Yes I'd take her to bed tenderly

    as the saying goes, how can this not have any comments?? i really cant even sum it up at the moment, but it seems so self explanatory to me that it doenst need it. those times when u have love, but u dont want it, and come to realize years later what is was you gave up, and how you miss it, and how you love it now, and how its just to late.....

    maybe it's that you can't express love or understand the anguish or despair and will allways be left alone. so you cherish and remember.

    Like many songs we enjoy listening to but have creepy lyrics, one wonders if it might encourage macho sexual assault by cowardly men like the Beatles\' "Run for Your Life." I\'m not for stifling expression but today I cannot listen to such songs with the enthusiasm I had back in that era.
