Tender Is the Night Lyrics

by Bryan Ferry

Now picture this, my point of view
In an ideal world I see the likes of you
Such as it is, babes in the wood
At the best of times I feel misunderstood

No work, no play
A million miles away
Tender is the night
I'm frantic today

No play
A million miles away
Tender is the night
I'm frantic today

It makes no sense, you'd think of me
When I'm out of place in your society
I wanna be where strangers meet
I wanna hold you at the dark end of the street

No work, no play
A million miles away
Tender is the night
I'm frantic today

No play
A million miles away
Tender is the night
I'm frantic today

Is this the end? Then let me know
Are you wanting me to stay, should I go?
Fancy words, go fast and loose
I'm too tongue-tied for the company you choose

No work, no play
A million miles away
Tender is the night
I'm frantic today

No play
A million miles away
Tender is the night
I'm frantic today

Tender is the night
I'm frantic today
