Your arms open wide
Close me inside
You took my lips
You took my love so tenderly

The evening breeze
Caressed the trees tenderly
The trembling trees
Embraced the breeze tenderly

Then you and I
Came wandering by
And lost
In a sigh were we

The shore was kissed
By sea and mist tenderly
I can't forget
How two hearts met breathlessly

Your big old arms opened wide
And then closed me, and then closed me inside
You took my lips
You took my love so tenderly

The shore was kissed
By sea and mist tenderly
I can't forget
How two hearts met breathlessly

Ah, your arms opened wide
And then closed me, and then closed me, closed me inside
You took my lips
Oh, you took my, my love so tenderly, so tenderly

You took my arms
And wrapped them around you and I
You took my lips

Your arms opened wide
Then closed me inside
You took, you took my lips
You took my love so tenderly
