Dawn The Day You Left Me, The

print

So early on that morning, the moon still way up high
The moon still way up high
Though soon enough the sun would warm the colors of the sky
I lay awake I could not sleep or even close my eyes
And dear you seemed so restless too I should have realized

The house was dark the moonlight was inviting and so strange
I went out by the window to watch the morning change
And just before the break of dawn and bird began to sing
And somehow then it came to me just what the day would bring

   That dawn the day you left me was so beautiful and sad
   How could I have turned away from the troubles that we had
   I know you tried to make me see and no I never would
   Too late that dawn the day you left I finally understood

A stray old cat did walk the fence outside my window bed
He stopped and looked my way and then he went without a care
And I wondered when he’d ramble back or why he ever should
But I knew that he was just like you and that he never would

   That dawn the day you left me was so beautiful and sad
   How could I have turned away from the troubles that we had
   Those words you spoke now ring so true just like you said they would
   Too late that dawn the day you left I finally understood
