ANGEL OF THE MORNING

There'll be no strings to bind your hands, not if my love can't bind your heart.
And there's no need to take a stand for it was I who chose a start.
I see no reason to take me home, I'm old enough to face the dawn.

Just call me angel of the morning angel!
Just touch my cheek before you leave me
darling!
Just call me angel of the morning angel!
Then slowly turn away from me.

Maybe the sun's light will be dim and it won't matter anyhow.
If morning's echoe says we've sinned but it was what I wanted now.
And if we're victims of the night, I won't be blinded by the light.


Just call me angel of the morning angel!
Just touch my cheek before you leave me
darling!
Just call me angel of the morning angel!
Then slowly turn away I want beg you to stay with me
Through the tears of the day, of the years, turn away.
