1990 - Be tender with me baby 7 Inch Single

"Be Tender With Me Baby" is a single from Tina Turner's album "Foreign Affair".
The song is written by Albert Hammond and Holly Knight.

"Be Tender With Me Baby" is a rock ballad about a man (thinking) about leaving a woman with personal issues. The woman asks for tenderness and patience, because she’s afraid that he really leaves her and is confused because she’s going through a tough fase in her life. "Be Tender With Me Baby" is really a strong love rock ballad and can bring people to tears. Tina’s vocals are very strong and soulfull, and you really can hear how the feeling of this song runs through her body and soul. Tina gives it all.



Tina performed the song during the Foreign Affair Farewell Tour as well as the Tina! 50th Anniversary Tour and used it as closing number in her concerts during those 2 tours.

"Be Tender With Me Baby" was released as in different formats like 7" single, 12" single, cd single and cassette single. For promotion they used a live video that was shot at her UK concert in Woburn Abbey, London. The single was only released in certain European countries.

Track Listing
"Be Tender With Me Baby"
Be tender with me baby

Album: Foreign Affair - 1989

You got the right to tell me it's all over
It isn't like me to be, begging you
Don't let go, don't let go
Just stay with me another day
When I'm not myself, please understand me
I'm so confused I don't know, what to do
But don't give up, don't give up
It just may take a little time

Be tender with me baby
I'm so afraid you'll go away
Be tender with me baby
Always, for always

I know that you've been patient with my weakness
And that you hate to see me cry
But I know, yes I know
It doesn't hurt to be this way
But I'm so lonely I could die


Why does my heart keep hurting
Why do I feel like I do
I hope you see this is not really me
It's just a phase that I'm going through
