Melissa Etheridge

Morning creeps into the window

Its golden fingers touch the sheets where we lay

Morning wraps its arms around me

And whispers in my ear it was all yesterday

Morning you're lying here beside me

But somehow now the night feels

So many years away

And it's morning, it's morning, it's morning

This moment the end of all beginnings

We just go on with living and be what we are

Memory lingers deep inside me

I must believe you loved me

If just for an hour

Longing to be the one you dream of

But someone else has touched that place in your heart

And it's morning, it's morning, it's morning

Love, love is so unfair

Its eyes are a lie and its heart doesn't care

If it's left out in the rain

It's me that feels the pain

Morning there's no one left to save me

And all, all you ever gave me

Was the need to write a song

And it's morning, it's morning, it's morning
