So tenderly
Your story is
Nothing more
Than what you see
Or
What you've done
Or will become
Standing strong
Do you belong
In your skin
Just wondering

Gentle now
The tender breeze
Blows
Whispers through
My Gran Torino
Whistling another
Tired song

Engine humms
And bitter dreams
Grow heart locked
In a Gran Torino
It beats
A lonely rhythm
All night long
It beats
A lonely rhythm
All night long
It beats
A lonely rhythm
All night long

Realign all
The stars
Above my head
Warning signs
Travel far
I drink instead
On my own
Oh,how I've known
The battle scars
And worn out beds

Gentle now
A tender breeze
Blows
Whispers through
A Gran Torino
Whistling another
Tired song

Engines humm
And bitter dreams
Grow
Heart locked
In a Gran Torino
It beats
A lonely rhythm
All night long

These streets
Are old
They shine
With the things
I've known
And breaks
Through
The trees
Their sparkling

Your world
Is nothing more
Than all
The tiny things
You've left
Behind

So tenderly
Your story is
Nothing more
Than what you see
Or
What you've done
Or will become
Standing strong
Do you belong
In your skin
Just wondering

Gentle now
A tender breeze
Blows
Whispers through
The Gran Torino
Whistling another
Tired song
Engines humm
And bitter dreams
Grow
A heart locked
In a Gran Torino
It beats
A lonely rhythm
All night long

May I be
So bold and stay
I need someone
To hold
That shudders
My skin
Their sparkling

Your world
Is nothing more
Than all
The tiny things
You've left
Behind

So realign
All the stars
Above my head
Warning signs
Travel far
I drink instead
On my own
Oh
How i've known
The battle scars
And worn out beds

Gentle now
A tender breeze
Blows
Whispers through
The Gran Torino
Whistling another
Tired song
Engines humm
And better dreams
Grow
Heart locked
In a Gran Torino
It beats
A lonely rhythm
All night long
It beats
A lonely rhythm
All night long
It beats
A lonely rhythm
All night long

    This song brings a tear to my eye. It shows how over the years a persons memories can get so attached to an object (Gran Torino) and that thinking about it has the power to take them back to simpler times. It is a beautiful song, for an excellent film.

    It means hold on to whats right, and stick to your guns, even when everyone else has given in to the succession of lesser men. Be the man you were meant to be while you still have the chance. A song that really ties into the movie in a way thats just so brilliant that you cant overlook the connection. Walt took a stand in the movie for what's right, and while there are plenty of people in the world who will never see life through his eyes or Thao's, we all have our own times when we have to do whats right. a beautiful song for a beautiful film that deserves every praise you can throw at it.

    I'm bursted into tears hearing that song at the end of the movie,it recalls the sence Clint falling down the front yard, and Daisy lying sadly at Thao's door. It's a simple song but has strong motion about one's life, somehow a life keeps going through that rhythm

    This song fits like a glove with the movie 'Gran Torino'.
    A great movie with a very strong story lead by my #1 actor hero Clint Eastwood. The son of a gun brougt some tears in my eyes at the end of the movie! Nothing like him! But it says it all...
    Great, great movie!
    If you are a Eastwood-fan and haven't seen this movie yet...
    WHAT THE HELL YOU'RE WAITING FOR?

    And yes...I do like this song, very much.
    Clint's brass voice leads the way.

    Each of us has a place where we can look inside our lives past and present. Experiences that we have dealt with and no one but ourselves know the positive or negetive effects it had on our being but us. In reverence, we look at these experiences with reflection, pain and joy.
