In The Morning

from by Vigilantes of Love



Written by Bill Mallonee for Irving Music, Inc., Allegiance Music, Russachugama Music and CyBrenJoJosh (BMI) ©1990, 1992


darling come and tell me what is wrong
i know you think that they're big and strong
God knows these rooms aren't safe when the night's so long
but in the morning they may be gone

your heart is beating faster and your fever is red hot
ever since the fall i try to remember something we forgot
and all the broken toys we left out on the lawn
why in the morning they may be gone

see these sheets of flimsy covers don't offer much protection
they don't make penecilin that will cure your infection
and our method of detection is so wrong
in the morning they may be gone

child you know i love you and i care
but you will find the heart of man is worse than any nightmare
you know how they will try to steal your dawn
in the morning they may be gone

close your eyes and try to get some sleep
sufficient is the evil for the day we have to keep
it's written somewhere this can't go on and on
why in the morning it may be gone
