Even though I'm in love
I'll say something so wrong

To tell the girl a comical line
I guess I'm just frightened out of my mind
But if that's how I feel
It's undeniably real

But just when I ought to relax
'Cause I'm just avoiding the facts
If the girl gets too close
When the moment arose

No that's not the woman I've known
So leave a tender moment alone
But it's not only me
Just when I'm in a serious mood

Leave it alone
I know the moment isn't right
To change the attitude tonight

Then it's the best feeling I've even known
Leave a tender moment alone
You got to leave a tender moment alone
Leave it alone
Leave a tender moment alone
