VERSE 1
He says that he loves her, and does all the right things.
On every occasion, he buys her the nice things.
He’s kept every promise
He’s held every vow
But where is the tenderness now?
VERSE 2
Remember the wedding, the wedding went wrong
His folks — her folks, didn’t get along
The preacher came late
And they laughed anyhow
But where is the laughter now?

VERSE 3
I see him with neighbors, he’s helpful and kind
With all sorts of strangers he shows that he cares
But with her he’s cold
Got a temper like lightning
Most times he acts, like she’s not even there.

VERSE 4
One day is gone, and the next day is going
There’s only time left for what time will allow
Her hair has gone gray
But her eyes are still glowing
It’s the best time, for showing, tenderness now.

CHORUS
Where is the soft touch
The smile in the morning
The sweet kiss that grazes her brow?
Where are the warm words that come from the heart
Please, won’t you say them aloud?


OUTRO
It’s the best time, for showing, tenderness now
