When you open the door to the heart of a friend, tread softly.
When into its chambers you slowly descend, tread softly.
When you look in the corners, when you walk down the halls
When look behind doors and you look behind walls
When you stop when you hear
It¢s your name someone calls, tread softly.
When you start to feel comfy and feeling at ease,
When you’re having your fun and starting to tease,
When you fall for the notion this friend is a breeze, tread softly.
For inside this heart lives a delicate thing;
it makes tulips open, it makes songbirds sing,
it makes every morning a beautiful spring, so tread softly.
