Touch Me In the Morning

submitted by: Diana Ross

Touch me in the morning
Then just walk away
We don’t have tomorrow
But we had yesterday

Wasn’t it me who said that
Nothing good’s gonna last forever?
And wasn’t it me who said
Let’s just be glad for the time together?
It must’ve been hard to tell me
That you’ve given all you had to give
I can understand you’re feeling that way
Everybody’s got their life to live

Well, I can say goodbye
In the cold morning light
But I can’t watch love die
In the warmth of the night
If I’ve got to be strong
Don’t you know I need
To have tonight when you’re gone?
‘Till you go I need to lie
Here and think about
The last time that you’ll touch me
In the morning
Then just close the door
Leave me as you found me,
Empty like before

Wasn’t it yesterday
We used to laugh at the wind behind us?
Didn’t we run away and hope
That time wouldn’t try to find us
(didn’t we run)
Didn’t we take each other
To a place where no one’s ever been?
Yeah, I really need you near me tonight
‘Cause you’ll never take me there again
Let me watch you go
With the sun in my eyes
We’ve seen how love can grow
Now we’ll see how it dies

If I’ve got to be strong
Don’t you know I need to have tonight
When you’re gone?
‘Till you go I need to hold you
Until the time
Your hands reach out
And touch me in the morning
Mornings were blue and gold
And we could feel one another living
Then just walk away
We walked with a dream to hold
And we could take what the
World was giving
We don’t have tomorrow,
There’s no tomorrow here,
There’s only love
And the time to chase it
But we had yesterday
(but yesterday’s gone my love,
There’s only now and it’s
Time to face it
Touch me in the morning…
