Tony Bennett – Lover lyrics

When you held your hand to my heart
Dear you did something grand to my heart
And we played the scene to perfection
Though we didn't have the time to rehearse

Since you took control of my life
You have become the whole of my life
When you are away it's awful
And when you are with me it's worse

Lover, when I'm near you
And I hear you speak my name
Softly in my ear and breathe a flame

Lover, when we're dancing
Keep on glancing in my eyes
Till love's only trancing music dies

All of my future is in you
You're every plan I design
Promise you'll always continue
To be mine

Lover, please be tender
When you're tender fears depart
Lover, I surrender to my heart

Well, I say that the devil is in you
And to resist you I try
But if you didn't continue
I would die

Lover, please be tender
When you're tender fears depart
Lover, I surrender to my heart
To my heart, lover
