  1. In the Morning

From the recording Full Circle

Lyrics

In the morning you thought I was sleeping
But I watched you go
A yellow cab waiting for you
Outside in the snow
 
If I were stronger or braver or better
Or the man that you need
I'd have stood in that doorway and held you
And not let you leave
 
And I can't count the ways
That this whole thing has turned into hell
I knew one of these days
You would figure it out for yourself
 
You wanted an old love
To feel like it was all brand new
And I'm sorry I couldn't just give in
And give it to you
 
I bought flowers and wine
But I'd finally broken your heart
I guess it was just a matter of time
Until we drifted a part
 
You were lovely and lonely and longing
For much better days
And you knew that you never would find them
Without walking away
 
Year after year we just waited
For dreams to come true
Choking back tears breath bated
What more could we do
 
You wanted a love you remembered
And the man you once knew
And I'm sorry I couldn't just give in
And give it to you
 
How the winter creeps in
Through these old windowpanes
With every creak in this cold lonely house
I think maybe I'll see you again
 
And a love is a love is a love
Until it is not
You give what you give what you're left with
Is what you have got
 
You get what you get
And you hope that it gets you through
And in the morning the lonely crept in
Like winter will do
 
And I wish you the best
I wish you a life filled with ease
I wish you'd never left
I wish you'd come back home to me
 
And I hope you are happy
I hope you've found love that is true
And I'm sorry I couldn't just give in
And give it to you
 
I'm so sorry I couldn't just give in
And give it to you
