Kris Kristofferson — Give It Time To Be Tender lyrics

[ with Rita Coolidge ]
I feel the hunger you feel in your touch burning my body and soul
And it's frightenin' just wantin' somebody so much so close to losing control
But darling don't make me surrender too soon I'm so afraid of the fall
Please give it time to be tender and pretend it won't hurt at all

Slowly be gentle each step of the way I've never been loved before
Let me believe you won't turn away after I've opened the door
But darling don't make me...
Please give it time to be tender and pretend it won't hurt at all
