Chris de Burgh - Tender hands
Tekst en muziek: Chris de Burgh
(1988)






Oh how, at the journey’s end
I lie in the heat of the night
Feeling the heartache, wondering why
I want a friend
I want a friend to lay down beside me
I want a friend
I want her now
Someone who knows what I mean
When I say that I need



Tender hands to hold me
I need tender hands tonight
Will you lay them on my shoulders
Will you lay them on my eyes
And I need tender hands to take me
All the way to paradise
And then, when it’s over
I need tender hands
To hold me through the night



Touch me with your velvet mouth
I will give all the love that I have
Under the moonlight, reaching your heart
Where are you now, where are you now
Come out of the shadows
Where are you now, I want you now
You know that I cannot always be strong
And I need



Tender hands to hold me
I need tender hands tonight
Will you lay them on my shoulders
Will you lay them on my eyes
And I need tender hands to take me
All the way to paradise
Then, when it’s over
I need tender hands
To hold me through the night



I am only a voice in a city of noise
Can you hear me this time
I see the storm grow
There’s a light in the desert tonight



And I need tender hands
Give me tender hands
Will you lay them on my shoulders
Oh, give me
Tender hands to take me
All the way to paradise
And then, when it’s over
I have tender hands
To hold you through the night, darling
My tender hands will hold you
Through the night



I want your tender hands
You have tender hands
I want those tender hands
Tender hands
