Afraid Of The Morning

 

Peel myself from these old crumpled sheets
Afraid of the morning without you I can’t compete
I kid myself it’s a brash, brand new day
A recurring reaction to chase my doubts away

Keep your tainted feelings to yourself
I’ll just laugh, its crazy but it helps
Sorry pride but this time there’s no trying to hide
These thoughts of dread and death are just shooting me up inside

But I can’t take myself
From under the shadow
Of this mid morning sun
There’s no chance it’s the way it can stay

This midday sun reflects a burning fear
Installs the thought tomorrow will I be here
Daily it’s hard with the things that you did to me
So for now I’ll just sit here on the brink of sobriety

I can’t take myself
From under the shadow
Of that mid morning sun
There’s no chance it’s the way it can stay
