Tender Hands
Words & Music by Chris de Burgh  

Gsus   Gm  
Oh__ how, at the journey's end,
  Gsus      Gm  
I lie in the heat of the night,
                         Cm                     Gm
Feeling the heartache, wondering why,
              Cm
I want a friend,
                                             Gm7
I want a friend to lay down beside me,
              Eb
I want a friend, I want her now,
                        Cm          
Someone who knows what I mean
           Fsus  F
When I say,   that I need

Bbsus    Bb
Tender hands to hold me,
           Eb/G  Gm
I need tender__ hands tonight,
               Cm
Will you lay them on my shoulders,
            Bb/F                         Fsus
Will you lay them on my eyes,
           F    Bbsus      
And I need tender hands to take me,
               G7              
All the way to paradise,
Cm    Eb                   Bb
And then, when it's over,
            Eb
I need tender hands
        F7sus           F7         Bbsus - Bb
To hold me through the night;

Touch me with your velvet mouth,
I will give all the love that I have,
Under the moonlight, reaching your heart,
Where are you now, where are you now,
Come out of the shadows,
Where are you now, I want you now,
You know that I cannot always be strong,
And I need

Tender hands to hold me,
I need tender hands tonight,
Will you lay them on my shoulders,
Will you lay them on my eyes,
And I need tender hands to take me,
All the way to paradise,
And then, when it's over,
I need tender hands
To hold me through the night;

        Db                 
I am only a voice in a city of noise,
               Eb
Can you hear me this time,
                  Db
I see the storm grow,
                                 Eb        Bbsus - Bb
There's a light in the desert tonight;

And I need tender hands,
Give me tender hands,
Will you lay them on my shoulders,
Oh give me
Tender hands to take me
All the way to paradise,
And then, when it's over,
I have tender hands
To hold you through the night, darling,
My tender hands will hold you
Through the night;
              
I want your tender hands,
You have tender hands,
                    Bbsus    Bb - Gsus - Gm
I want those tender hands,
Tender hands...
