Steppenwolf - Tenderness Lyrics

She tried to show me hw 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 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
And 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 unknown
And watch for my lost Tenderness"
I went from her to someone else and someone else
No, I couldn't be satisfied

She said, she said all you women burn in your flame
And 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
Yes I'd take her to bed tenderly
