Diana Ross - Tenderness Lyrics




Tenderness is the best
Tenderness I confess
Tenderness is the best
Tenderness nothin' less

Love me with a tender touch
Kindness I need very much
It is so hard for me to trust
But deep inside I know I must

Love me all through the night
Hug me 'till the first rays of sunlight
Be sweet, make me unafraid
'Cause tonight I'll play with you
Please be gentle

Tenderness is the best
Tenderness I confess
Tenderness is the best
Tenderness nothin' less

Love me, try to be understanding
Tenderness is all that I'm asking
Don't feel like I'm making conditions
I wanna to overcome my inhibitions

Love me all through the night
Hug me 'till the first rays of sunlight
Be sweet, make me unafraid
'Cause tonight I'll play with you
Please be gentle

Tenderness is the best
Tenderness I confess
Tenderness is the best
Tenderness nothin' less

Love me with the tender touch
Kindness I need very much
It is so hard for me to trust
But deep inside I know I must

Love me all through the night
Hug me 'till the first rays of sunlight
Be sweet, make me unafraid
'Cause tonight I'll play with you
Please be gentle

Love me
Kindness
Love me
Hug me
Please be gentle

Tenderness is the best
Tenderness I confess
Tenderness is the best
Tenderness nothin' less

Tenderness is the best
Tenderness I confess
Tenderness is the best
Tenderness nothin' less
Try to be understanding
Try to be understanding

    This is the best album of her career. With or without the supremes. Hands down

  4. Mister of navels bellybutton lovers

    Paradisiac music and 1980 beautiful year of the disco and funky sound. I remember thats years

  5. gmoneyhollywood

    I can't get enough of this Joint. Ross was in full effect on her vocals during this time period. She was the hottest entertainer in 1980 along with her counterpart and great friend, Mr. Jackson. Together, they could do no wrong. One of my many favorites by Ross. This is absolutely the Groove!

  6. Marco Galmuzzi

    Dreamy, charismatic, sensual, suave how else can you describe this music??? The genius of Nile Roger's.

  23. Nicole Morris

    When I was and all the Albums and 45s I wore this album out!!!!

  24. Linda Brown

    One of her best contemporary single albums with Chic! I though Nile Rogers and Bernard Edwards (R.I.P.) brought out the best modern singing out of her!

  25. george banks

    Lady Di meets chic!, and the rest is history I don't know why she did'nt continue with them?. She had found her niche between the Boss & DIANA WOW THEM WERE THE DAYS!!!🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉😃

    gmoneyhollywood

    George,
    I agree with you. She should have continued down that path with them for two additional collaborations at least through the middle 80's. We could only imagine what type of strong holds she would have had on the industry. She may have been given Madonna a nice battle on who would rule the charts from a female's reign because no one at that time could have touched MJ.

    Evelyn Price

    RIGHT!❤🎤👍

  26. Oma Eguara

    You immediately know when you are hearing Nile Rogers!

  45. hollywoodcheremonkey

    Just perfect. Mmmm. Good.

  46. Clint Shaw

    this is not a modern edit of the track. This is the original CHIC mix. The mix Bernard Edwards and Nile Rogers originally submitted to Motown,  Motown didn't like any of the mixes on this album and re engineered them all. When "Diana" was re-released they included the originals again. LOVE this song. background vocals Nard on bass, Nile strumming like crazy on guitar .... and of course Diana cooing and being seductive as only she can .... favorite song on the album 

    Rosalyn A.

    Ron Rossmore liked video's

    Brian Johnson

    It was Diana Ross who didn't like it, not Motown.

    clouds overnyc

    Who ever didn't like it was right, it sounded like a demo, she went in and polished up her vocals and brought them forward and motownized the rest of the songs and made it a hit!!!

    Bruce Anthony

    Agreed!

    IIlIl Ill Il l

    Oh yeah there's an instrumental section towards the end eh? So beautiful

  47. Orlando Gray

    Thanks!
