Tenderness Lyrics
Saturday, May 03, 2008

We make our way with urgency
From concourse A to concourse B
Through the mall and exit lane
In St. Paul or Bangor Maine
Surrounded by a surging sea
The moving tide of humanity
I love to find as I progress
The little signs of tenderness
A little flash of soul and mind
That shows compassion for our kind
Amid the daily storm and stress
A little warmth and tenderness

Upward Onward outward press
But show a little tenderness

We all are human more or less
So show a little tenderness

Would I like a drink? No, I guess
I would prefer some tenderness.

Stop and look around and bless
The world with signs of tenderness.

I wish you fortune and success
But try to show some tenderness

Do your business, prosper, yes,
But take time for a little tenderness.
