Tender was my lover from the suburbs of town
We were sweethearts from college, she was always around
We were good for each other but, somethings they just don't work out

There were tears in my eyes when she walked away
We'd had plans to get married some day
But the promises were broken before they were even made

Now I'm dancing with a broken heart
Ain't no doctor who can make it start
Singing these are the words that I'm never gonna say again

Cos I'll give until I've given up
One more casualty of easy love
These are the words, that I'm never gonna say again

Tender was my lover, god I miss her embrace
And I wonder who it is [that] puts a smile on her face
I recall the way she feels oh and I recall the way she tastes

If I could hold her now, then all that I'd see
Remind me of childhood memories
She was the first day of summer yeah, that girl that girls for me

Now I'm dancing with a broken heart
Ain't no doctor who can make it start
Singing these are the words that I'm never gonna say again

Cos I'll give until I've given up
One more casualty of easy love
As these are the words, that I'm never gonna say again

And these are the words that I say to your picture
These are the words that I say in a dream
These are the words that I wish I'd said to you, when you were standing here next to me

Cos I'll give until I've given up
One more casualty of easy love
And these are the words, that I'm never gonna say again

Now I'm dancing with a broken heart
Ain't no doctor who can make it start
Singing these are the words that I'm never gonna say again

Now I'm dancing with a broken heart
Ain't no doctor who can make it start
Singing these are the words that I'm never gonna say again
