An early morning melody
Playing in the scenery of my mind
Rainy days and ocean tides,
Through the hills and greenwood sides, like a wind
I think of you that way a lot,
Singing to the coffeepot and the kitchen wall
Always up before the sun, picking out some pretty run,
On the strings like a waterfall,
Like a waterfall.
You've given me so many songs,
Ones that kept me going on when I’d wonder why
Weaving through the busy days,
They were colors in the misty haze, like rainbow
Reminding me that even prison walls
Turn to dust and fall before the open sky.
And love can find you in the darkest hour,
Touch you lightly as a flower on colored wings
Like a butterfly, like a butterfly.
Thought I’d let you know
I heard you singing soft and low
When I woke today
I got up to play along,
Found myself with a morning song
To send your way.
Thanking you for all the times
You've listened to these sunrise lines
I’ve made for you
I see your face before me now,
Smiling as if you know somehow,
You've touched my day
Like the morning dew,
Like the morning dew.
