Paloma Faith – I’ll Be Gentle Lyrics

SHARE
[Verse 1: 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”

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

[Chorus: John Legend & Paloma Faith] 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

[Refrain: John Legend & Paloma Faith] I’ll take it on (listen, baby, yeah)
Yeah, I’ll be gentle

[Verse 2: 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

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

[Chorus: John Legend & Paloma Faith] 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

[Bridge: John Legend & Paloma Faith] 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

[Refrain: John Legend & Paloma Faith] 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

[Chorus: John Legend & Paloma Faith] 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

[Chorus: John Legend & Paloma Faith] 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

[Outro: John Legend & Paloma Faith] 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
