Tender Love
Janis Lyrics


You see a pair of laughing eyes
And suddenly your sighing sighs
You're thinking nothing's wrong
You string along, boy, then snap!

Those eyes, those sighs, they're part of the tender trap
You're hand in hand beneath the trees
And soon there's music in the breeze
You're acting kind of smart, until your heart just goes wap!
Those trees, that breeze, they're part of the tender trap
Some starry night, when her kisses make you tingle
She'll hold you tight, and you'll hate yourself for being single

And all at once it seems so nice
The folks are throwing shoes and rice
You hurry to a spot, that's just a dot on the map

You're hooked, you're cooked, you're caught in the tender trap
Some starry night, when her kisses make you tingle
She'll hold you tight, and you'll hate yourself for being single

And all at once it seems so nice
The folks are throwing shoes and rice
You hurry to a spot that's just a dot on the map

And then you wonder how it all came about
It's too late now there's no gettin' out
You fell in love, and love is the tender trap

Janis Joplin is one of my very few heroes. I love her as if I knew her.

Jade Shannon

how could u let her go?

@Julcisko This is all nonsense. DN found Janis and Peggy in the bedroom together, shooting up. He left. Lots of revisionism going on with this guy, as approved by the Joplin siblings...

@Howard Neely I don't know anything about Morgan, I'm only retelling the story from the document I have seen. Edit> I checked the facts and what I found is, that she met Niehaus in Feb 1970. He wanted to marry her, but she started to use heroin again, after came back home. So he left. Her tour manager John Cook said in the documentary, that she kept talking a lot about Niehaus, who was according to him perfect for her. He also said, she referred to Niehaus as "her lost love" and she still hoped that he would come back after she got clean. However, she never did. Joplin began her relationship with Morgan in August 1970 and got engaged in September, then died in October, the same day she got the telegram from Niehaus. As I said, I don't know anything about Morgan, but it doesn't seem to me like she was that much in love with him. The engagement after one month of relationship may not be a demonstration of big love, as we all know, she felt very lonely and desperately "needed a man to love"...

@Julcisko That is so sad. If only he would have sent his telegram, just 1 day earlier.

Julcisko

Watch Little Girl Blue document. The whole love story is mentioned there. They have met in Rio, they fell in love with each other, he helped her to kick her drug habit, but when she came back home to San Francisco, she became weak and started to take heroin again. He said, he can't watch this, 'cause it's breaking his heart, so they split. She was upset she lost her lover and believed in reunion, and he really wrote her a telegram, that he really miss her and they can meet anytime, but the late October is the best season. The Telegram arrived at the hotel the same day they found her dead.
