Tender is the night
Lying by your side
Tender is the touch
Of someone that you love too much
Tender is the day
The demons go away
Lord I need to find
Someone who can heal my mind

Come on come on come on
Get through it
Come on come on come on
Love's the greatest thing
Come on come on come on
Get through it
Come on come on come on
Love's the greatest thing
That we have
I'm waiting for that feeling
I'm waiting for that feeling
Waiting for that feeling to come

Oh my baby
Oh my baby
Oh why
Oh my

Tender is the ghost
The ghost I love the most
Hiding from the sun
Waiting for the night to come
Tender is my heart
I'm screwing up my life
Lord I need to find
Someone who can heal my mind

Come on come on come on
Get through it
Come on come on come on
Love's the greatest thing
Come on come on come on
Get through it
Come on come on come on
Love's the greatest thing
That we have
I'm waiting for that feeling
I'm waiting for that feeling
Waiting for that feeling to come

Oh my baby
Oh my baby
Oh why
Oh my

Come on come on come on
Get through it
Come on come on come on
Love's the greatest thing
Come on come on come on
Get through it
Come on come on come on
Love's the greatest thing
That we have
I'm waiting for that feeling
I'm waiting for that feeling
Waiting for that feeling to come

Oh my baby
Oh my baby
Oh why
Oh my

Tender is the light
Lying by your side
Tender is the touch
Of someone that you love too much
Tender is my heart you know
I'm screwing up my life
Oh Lord I need to find
Someone who can heal my mind

Come on come on come on
Get through it
Come on come on come on
Love's the greatest thing
Come on come on come on
Get through it
Come on come on come on
Love's the greatest thing
That we have
I'm waiting for that feeling
I'm waiting for that feeling
Waiting for that feeling to come

Oh my baby
Oh my baby
Oh why
Oh my

love love love his voice.
Tender to music...
I will also go against all the haters out there and say that this song is a perfect 10. Awesome Blur track about Damon Albarn's breakup with Elastica frontwoman Justine Frishmann. Glorious arrangement and heartfelt lyrics that really drive home the heartache and longing. Just a phenomenal song.
I am gonna break from the norm and say I actually like this song. Love is awesome, embrace it like you would a particularly nice burger.
Why is it that as soon as turn on this station in an effort to show someone the great songs they play this crud is on (and on, and on, and on). They left, and I can't blame them!
:bounce:
Reminds me of drunken choruses I have heard sung in bars, at football games. At least those were entertaining. This is execrable.

Did you ever hear BillG trying to quote your comment on this song? --- it was hilarious --> couldn't say "All the girls at the seafood factory ..." without cracking up!
The image which comes to mind, listening to this song is a rowboat floating down the stream on a big river in some tropical land. The rowers are rowing on the tempo, set by the beat, played on a tom tom.

Always did like this song. All the girls at the seafood factory would cut scallops while swaying gently in unison to this tune - like a field of barley in a gently breeze......
Man, I love these posts! Thanks for the visual, aharmanx
Same repetition as "Louis, Louis", less than half the fun! Really, this is terrible stuff. Brainless and boring and it goes on WAY longer than it needs to.
This is just simply DRECK. :puke:
:x
oh my god...PLEASE, make it stop! :frustrated:
Yo! Brit rock rules!!!

is david byrne in there? or am i hearing things? cool song. :)
It IS cool...and I thought I heard Neil Young at one point as well.
This is a very strange song...something in me likes it, but at the same time I want to crush my speakers under a heavy object. Sounds like a 5 to me.

It is a beautiful image indeed! I always loved that song from the moment I heard it - and I love Blur! :clap:

What a beautiful image--didn't really like the song until I read this and saw the picture - an opening for a great indie film perhaps. What is music but the background that makes our lives like art....

:lol: :clap: Although I find txcharlie66's comment endlessly amusing, I don't dislike this song. If it were half the length I'd probably even like it. At this point though I'm wondering if the mp3 is skipping... if that's even possible... :??:
:frustrated: Tender are my nerves. Stop playing this one.
Oh man, this really stinks. Please... no more!!!
MORE BLUR PLEASE!!!!!!! OR EVEN SOME GORILLAZ
reminds me of 10cc or Air, particularly with that low voice.
This must have been recorded with the record player on the wrong speed. Sounds like the Beach Boys on downers. blur. They blur the line between beach music and transcendental meditation.
Horrible - I want to put a screw driver through my eardrums.
I like it! ....provided me with the swift kick to the ass that I needed this morning... Thanks :D
Good song, a side of Blur I've never encountered before. Would love to hear some more Blur! I said that? Song didn't do anything for me this time. Blah 6/13/03
more blur, please! :D

It would sound a lot better if someone would upload a higher-bitrate version (hint, hint). This is at 128k which makes it sound "mushy" after it's re-encoded for the stream.
Something compells me to turn up the DBs on this song!
can\'t say I like this too much. Just doesn\'t seem so coherent with the indistinct background vocals.
Come on, come on, come on, ..., and *please* end. Ugh. I don\'t care for this at all. :(
Does it ever end? Can I beg for mercy or something?
Ok, but than we might as well love Mull Of Kintyre, now don\'t we? (the way it sold, we probably do)
Wow! What can you say about these guys? This band can make just about any type of music...everything from Tender to Song 2. Nice to hear these blokes here. Over all, a very very good song. Excellent backing vox, IMHO.
It takes a tough band to make a Tender song. Like this!
Very cool song and an interesting CD in total.
Pretty decent. I couldn\'t believe this was the same band that did \"Woo hoo!\"
so can anyone tell me why are these guys the greatest thing since sliced bread in England?
Never paid no mind to this band. Now, this song is great.
excellent cd, my favorite blur song to date. inspirational. thanks for playing it!!
one of those rare songs that gets better each time you listen to it
Nice groove....I\'m diggin\' it....
