She tried to show me how to love
I bit her lips and bruised her arms
No I hadn't learned Tenderness

She asked, "what does love mean to you?"
I grabbed her hair and pulled her down
I looked in her eyes and I laughed

The love I feel is hard and fast
It's for a face and for one night
I don't need to own anyone

She said, she said, "All your women burn in your flame
But as it dies, as it dies, they'll leave you and seek revenge"

She laughed and said, "You'll go through hell
You'll live in lonely rooms I know
And watch for my love's Tenderness"

Oh I went from her to someone else
And someone else mmmm
Oh I couldn't feel satisfied

(instrumental)

She said, she said, "All your women burn in your flame
But as it dies, as it dies, they'll leave you and seek revenge"

I wish that I could find her now
My love is soft, my love is warm
I'd take her to bed tenderly
Oh I'd take her to bed tenderly
Yes I'd take her to bed tenderly

Mmmhhhmmmm
