Tender Was the Night

Tender was the darkness
before the morning light
Did it come
like a thief in the night?

Tender were your eyes
in the days before
Now I call upon you
judge this fallen man

Help me to forget
Help me to forget
Help me to forgive
Help me

Tender was the softness
of not knowing the truth
Now everything shines
with darkness

Help me to forget
Help me to forget
Help me to forgive
Help me

She’s gone away
Tender was the night
before she found out
