Softly And Tenderly
Billie Jo Spears

Tonight again you'll be holding another tenderly
Whispering soft sweet words you once spoke to me
While I'm here a lonely living old memories
Of the precious love you once gave to me
Then softly and tenderly tears touch my cheeks
Invisible tears no one ever sees
Softly and tenderly my heart still beats
For only you and all the love you gave to me
[ piano ]
It seems to me that you're reaching for a world that don't exist
Searching for new lips that you've never kissed
When I think I find your conscience has suddenly gone blind
I find I wonder who if you were ever really mine
Then softly and tenderly...
For only you and all the love you gave to me
