It’s five o’ clock this morning and the sun is on the rise
There’s frosting on the window pane and sarrow in your eyes
The stars are fading quietly, night is nearly gone
And so you turn away from me and tears begin to come…
It’s goodbye again, I’m sorry to be leavin’ you
Goodbye again, in case you didn’t know
It’s goodbye again, and I wish you could tell me
Why do we always fight when I have to go?
It seems a shame to leave you now you lay so soft and warm
I long to lay me down again and hold you in my arms
I long to kiss the tears away, give you back your smile
But other voices beakon me and for a little while…
I have to go and see some friends of mine.
Some that I don’t know, some who aren’t familiar with my name.
It’s something that’s inside of me, not hard to understand.
It’s just anyone who’ll listen to me sing.
So if your hours are empty now, who am I to blame?
You think if I were always here, our love would be the same?
And as it is the time we have, is worth the time alone.
But lying by your side’s the greatest peace I’ve ever known.
