The Morning After Love

From Mirrors And Changes

Music and lyrics © 1974 Bob Zentz

 

1.  This morning, as I listened to the rain, I thought of you  (C-Bb-C)
Wished that you were by my side again, memories flew  (C-Dm-Am)
But cigarettes and coffee cups donít make that dream come true   (F-Em-Am-F)
And itís the morning after love, and the night before loneliness  (Em-F-Em-F)

And somewhere in between, Iíll find out what you mean  (Em-F-E-F-Em)

Before weíre through  (F-C)


2.  Many months have passed between our smiles, I had to go
To face along the emptiness of miles, what did we know?
But we swore that we could never change, but forgot that we might grow
And itís the morning after love, and the night before loneliness

That lets us know the score, enough to say no more

Except hello

 

     And too many times, we had to wear the mask  (Em-Bm)

     And too many times I had to stop and ask you  (Am-D)

     Why you never cried  (C-Bm-Am-G-F-C-G7)

 

3.  I canít insist that we should meet again, thatís up to time

But maybe even distance was a friend we thought unkind

But dulcimer dreams and yellow roses still are on my mind

And itís the morning after love and the night before loneliness

Theyíre only fading signs, slipping far behind

A bitter line

 

And itís the morning after love and the night before loneliness

That makes us stop and see just who we want to be

Then sets us free

 

And itís the morning after love and the night before loneliness

The morning after love and the night before loneliness
