Faith, Paloma - I'll Be Gentle Lyrics




[John Legend:]
Puttin' on a brave face, I wipe the tears away with no trace
I'm OK, Mister Grey
I'm not as strong as you think
There's a hurt behind my smiling face
I say, "I'm OK"

[John Legend & Paloma Faith:]
Every saint has a past
Every sinner has a future
And I feel your pain
We all hurt the same

And I'll be there to hold you
There's nothing that I won't do
'Cause we all need a little kindness
All this cruelty is so mindless
I promise I'll be tender
So darling just surrender
I see through all your pretending
So let go 'cause I can take it on

I'll take it on (listen, baby)
Yeah, I'll be gentle

[Paloma Faith:]
I see you putting on a brave face
I guess you need to learn to have faith
I'll stay and wait
I shake it off and have a few drinks
And forget about everything they say
I'll be your escape

[John Legend & Paloma Faith:]
Every saint has a past
Every sinner has a future
And I feel your pain
We all hurt the same

And I'll be there to hold you
There's nothing that I won't do
'Cause we all need a little kindness
All this cruelty is so mindless
I promise I'll be tender
So darling just surrender
I see through all your pretending
'Cause our love is never ending

Oh, so hold my hand
'Cause I got nowhere else to turn
Please be gentle and be kind
Lend me your ear, lend me your time
Just let it out
It takes a real man to let me see him cry
I'm here to dry your eyes
I see your're hurt, don't cry tonight

And I'll be there to hold you
There's nothing that I won't do
'Cause we all need a little kindness
All this cruelty is so mindless

And I'll be there to hold you
There's nothing that I won't do
'Cause we all need a little kindness
All this cruelty is so mindless
I promise I'll be tender
So darling just surrender
I see through all your pretending
So let go 'cause I can take it on

And I'll be there to hold you
There's nothing that I won't do
'Cause we all need a little kindness
All this cruelty is so mindless
I promise I'll be tender
So darling just surrender
I see through all your pretending
So let go 'cause I can take it on

I'll take it on (oh, take it on)
I'll take it on
Oh, baby
And I'll be gentle
Oh, I'll be gentle

    Chris Taylor

    I think he might be her band member

    steve knight

    Chris Taylor ok , the. Like to see him out on his own sometime

    Mark Sieving

    He's been in Paloma's band for about 6 years. He's done backing vocals for her all that time, but the first I heard him sing was the BBC Radio 2 concert last month, doing this song. I don't know if he's done much solo work, but here's one song he's done on Youtube: https://youtu.be/MXT7F_CsZrQ

    Derek Banks

    BB has his own record label ... http://www.deadmintrecords.com/artists/.. and wrote me and my baby at christmas released last xmas..

    Jonny Brooks

    He's my cousin actually :) he was in a band called Haunts way back when, great band, but they never made it super big even though they way deserved it (here's an example of one of his songs from then: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TkoxZbbpGQ0). He started remixing some of Paloma's songs and posting them on YT which is how he caught her eye. He's been a multi-instrumentalist in her band for a while. Very cool dude, turned up to his sister's wedding in a purple suit...

  10. Anne B.

    They are so incredible together. They harmonize beautifully... and I absolutely love that song. Brilliantly done Paloma and Banks. Makes me smile.
