Before the dawn, I hear you whisper in your sleep
“Don’t let the morning take him.”
Outside, the birds begin to call
As if to summon up my leaving

It’s been a lifetime since I found someone
Since I found someone who would stay
I’ve waited too long and now you’re leaving
Oh, please don’t take it all away

It’s been a lifetime since I found someone
Since I found someone who would stay
I’ve waited too long and now you’re leaving
Oh, please don’t take it all away

Before the dawn, I hear you whisper in your sleep
“Don’t let the morning take him.”
