I'll Be Gentle Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Oh oh
Yeah, yeah
Verse 2
Puttin' on a brave face, I wipe the tears away with no trace
I'm okay, Mister Grey
I'm not as strong as you think
There's a hurt behind my smiling face
I say, "I'm okay"
Verse 3
Every saint has a past
Every sinner has a future
And I feel your pain
We all hurt the same
Verse 4
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
Verse 5
I'll take it on (listen, baby)
Yeah, I'll be gentle
Verse 6
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
Verse 7
Every saint has a past
Every sinner has a future
And I feel your pain
We all hurt the same
Verse 8
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
Verse 9
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
Verse 10
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
Verse 11
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
Verse 12
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
Verse 13
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
