You came to me so tenderly
And for a day the world was ours
I will never forget although time may pass by
How you came to me so tenderly

The night was cold and it felt so old
Until you came with your youthful flame
And suddenly like freed from spell
The night felt young and hot again

And now that time has passed
I still remember your tenderness
Just the thought brings the warmest breeze to my memory
When you came to me so tenderly

Touch me again so tenderly
And I'll survive every day
Cause I'm burning inside, by your sparkling side
Since you came to me so tenderly
