The evening breeze
Caressed the trees
Tenderly

The trembling trees
Embraced the breeze
Tenderly

Then you and I
Came wandering by
And lost in a sigh
Were we

The shore was kissed
By sea and mist
Tenderly

I can’t forget
How two hearts met
Breathlessly

Your arms are opened wide
And closed me inside
You took my lips
You took my love
So tenderly
