To The Morning

This one dates me.  I guess they all do.  I loved Dan Folgelberg when I was a younger man.  This sound is pretty dated too.  Early 70's.  You don't hear songs like this too much on the radio these days.  It is so piano-ey, so string-ey, his voice is breath-ey and light.  It is a soft song, a quiet song, a simple song about lots of different little emotions.  Waiting for mail, Maybe a tale, From an old friend, or even a lover...  Sometimes there's none, But we have fun, Thinking of all who might, Have written.

Life just keeps on coming at you.  Nothing to do but make the very best of it.



Watching the sun
Watching it come
Watching it come up over the rooftops.

Cloudy and warm
Maybe a storm
You can never quite tell
From the morning.

Chorus
And it's going to be a day
There is really no way to say no
To the morning.

Yes it's going to be a day
There is really nothing left to
Say but
Come on morning.

Waiting for mail
Maybe a tale
From an old friend
Or even a lover.

Sometimes there's none
But we have fun
Thinking of all who might
Have written.

And maybe there are seasons
And maybe they change
And maybe to love is not so strange.

The sounds of the day
They hurry away
Now they are gone until tomorrow.

When day will break
And you will wake
And you will rake your hands
Across your eyes
And realize

That it's going to be a day
There is really no way to say no
To the morning.

Yes it's going to be a day
There is really nothing left to say but
Come on morning.

I tried to find you on facebook last week. I found Heidi and asked her to be a friend, but then thought it a bit daft as she didn't know me! So I cancelled my request. I decided that you weren't on there. I think that's sensible, mind. ;)
