Love Softly

If I could just touch you softly
rest my head against your arm
you know I just love you softly
I would never do you harm.

If everyone loved like that,
when they're hurting,
when they're lonely
if they could just love like that
the world would be a beautiful place.

There wouldn't be all these problems in the world
all these people doing each other hurt.

Stroke your arm with my fingers
just a soft touch

Why do so many people feel with their lusts
instead of gentle love?

You know how beautiful a place it would be
if everyone just loved softly.

(Oh Baby, you know I'll always
love you softly.)

Tonight at Fu-chou, this moon she watches
Alone in our room. And my little, far-off
Children, too young to understand what keeps me
Away, or even remember Chang'an. By now,
