[G5]                                    [D5] 
Between the darkness on the street,
and the houses filling up with [E5]light            [C5]
[G5]                                    [D5] 
Between the stillness in my heart,
and the roar[E5] of the approaching night               [C5]
[G5]                                  [D5]   
Somebody calling after somebody
somebody turns a[E5] corner out of sight
[C5]Looking for somebody, s[G5]omew[D5]here in the night             [E5]

[C5]    [D5]        [G5]    [C5]     [D5]         [G5]    [C5]  [D5] 
[G]Tender is[C] the night, [D]   [G/D]     [D]   [G]
when you hold your baby tight[C]      [D]     [G/D]    [D]
[G]Tender are[C] the moti[D]ons, tender[G/D] is the [D]night   [G]      [C]   [D]
[G]                                    [D] 
Between the life that we expected,
and the way it's always be[Em]en           [C]
I can't walk back in agai[G]n,         [D]
after the way we fight   [Em]    [D]  [Em]   [D]  [Em]   [D]
[G]                                    [D] 
When just outside there are people laughing,
living li[Em]ves we used to lead      [C]
                          [G]          [D] 
Chasing down the love they need,
somewhere in the night      [Em]    [C]   [D]

[G]Tender is[C] the night[D],      [G/D]     [D]    [G]
and the benediction of the ne[C]on light [D]            [G/D]    [D]
[G]Tender ar[C]e the hunters[D], tender[G/D] is th[D]e night      [G]   [C]  [D]

when you're ready to be tender,       [D]

Tender, tender
