In The Mornin'

In The Mornin'

I will see you in the mornin'
When this long night has flown away

There was a time when I was young
When life had only just begun
And lookin' back I'm glad that I was born then.

A simple time and slower pace
Until the day I saw her face
Then everything was changed without a warnin'.
I will see you in the mornin'
When this long night has flown away

She took me captive from the start
But swore she'd never break my heart
And magic wove a web of love and more then.

She made me laugh. She made me cry
But always was my alibi 
Through thick and thin regardless of the stormin'...
(Repeat Chorus)

Then late one night these fourty years
Went flashing in a flood of tears.
I held her close and heard her whisper "Yours", then.

She closed her eyes. I wiped the tears.
Then one last time to ease my fears
She whispered out these words in sweet adorin'...
I will see you in the mornin'
When this long night has flown away
I will see you in the mornin'
As the dawn breaks another day...

(Chorus--repeat ad lib to end)


For Frank H's 'Hallelujah' contest
