Lyrics

Watched your train as it went out of sight
I even waved goodbye, then cried all night
You'd left me
The only one who set you free
Now you hold the key
So open the door with care
Tell our fortune if you dare
I guess there are fools everywhere
So you see, you and me
We were meant to keep love from our door
Why can't I have more of your tenderness?

I keep waking up to find you gone
Got to talk this out before too long
So that you can see the pain you put me through
You'd feel the same way, too
On a mission without a goal
I've dug myself deep in this hole
In danger of losing my soul
So you see, you and me
We were meant to keep love from our door
Why can't I have more of your tenderness?

In my dreams, I get to walk with you
And we can feel our love come shining through
You know me, I was never one to let it be
I just had to see the man that I knew before
And the truth that I saw -- I'm just not worth it anymore
So you see, you and me
We were meant to keep love from our door
Why can't I have more, full of your tenderness?
More of your tenderness
