Between the darkness on the street
And the houses fillin' up with light
Between the stillness in my heart
And the roar of the approaching night
Somebody's callin' after somebody
Somebody turns the corner out of sight
Lookin' for somebody
Somewhere in the night

Tender is the night
Tender
(When you hold your baby tight)
Tender
Tender are the motions, tender is the night

Between a life that we expected
And the way it's always been
I can't walk back in again
After the way we fight
Just outside there are people laughin'
Livin' lives we used to lead
Chasin' down the love they need
Somewhere in the night

Tender is the night
Tender
(An' the benediction of the neon light)
Tender
Tender are the hunters, tender is the night

You're gonna want me tonight
When you're ready to surrender
Forget about who's right
When you're ready to remember
It's another world at night
When you're ready to be tender

Tender, tender, tender
Tender, tender, tender
Tender

And in the hard light of an angry sun
No one remembers what was said or done
Tender are the words they choose
You win, I win, we lose

Tender
Tender is the night
Tender
(The benediction of the neon light)
Tender
Tender are the hunters, tender is the night
When they hold each other tight
Tender
Tender are the undercover
Tender
The stranger and the secret lover
Tender
Tender are the motions, tender is the night
When you hold your baby tight

Tender, tender, tender
Tender, tender, tender
