Morning Of My Life

Walking down my street
she shakes her head
in the summer heat
we met back at
Richards Junior High.
Talking to the Grass-man
all about the Taxman
I never wanted to
have to say goodbye.

She walked right in
into the morning of my life.

All around the curfew
barefoot in the wet dew
we chased a dream
we could never realize.
Talking about Black Betty
I felt like J. Paul Getty
I never knew a kiss
could get me this high.

She walked right past
through the morning of my life.

When she sang that song to me
her secret longing to be free
on the corner
in soft summer rain.
Bought America in a jar
filled with samples from afar
I felt her vibe shake me
like a steam train.

She walked right through
deep in the morning of my life.

She shook me
she really woke me up.
Perfect sky
and her big blue eyes.
She smiled my blues away
pretty baby I wish
you could have stayed.

Then she kind of moved away
life called
and we could not stay.
Sweet little lady
I think you've seen that movie too.
Saying goodbye to a friend
you never think it is the end
I never thought
you were gone to stay.

She walked right out
out of the morning of my life.

Fine lyrics Will. It's hard to say something new in a love song, but you have, and you've expressed it well.

I will add that this is a rough draft, and I am working onnthe usic track more now, with the lyrics finished as-is.

Robert Wright is in the studio tonight laying down bass tracks.
