It's Hard To Be Tender

This song is by Carly Simon.

It's hard to be tender
It's hard to stay open
When you're dizzy with anger
And your dreams have been broken

Lying with you 'neath the sky
The country is so green in the light
Loving you's the key to my survival

Now you have gone away
The skies turned grey, the rivers froze
I remember how you held me close
And I shiver

It's hard to be tender
It's hard to stay open
When the woods are on fire
And the river is frozen

Swore on my knees as a child
Never to forsake god above
Never to betray the ones who love me

Now years have come and gone
I find the strength to carry on
But the blood that ran so fast and warm
Has grown colder

Now my heart has turned to ice
Is it just the price of growing older?

It's hard to be tender
But I'm tired of defending
I know that I love you
So I'll write my own ending
