"Before The Dawn" as written by and Glenn Raymond/downing Tipton....
Before the dawn I hear you whisper
In your sleep don't let the morning take him
Outside the birds begin to call
As if to summon up my leaving

It's been a lifetime since I found someone
Since I found someone who would stay
I've waited too long and now you're leaving
Oh please don't take it all away

It's been a lifetime since I found someone
Since I found someone who would stay
I've waited too long and now you're leaving
Oh please don't take it all away

Before the dawn I hear you whisper
In your sleep don't let the morning take him

    General CommentDon't agree about the "dying" theme. I think it's about two lovers, that are going through a hard story. In the night, one of the lovers fears that the other would leave him, so he's afraid and desperate, because he knows that it would be that way. After the dawn, he eventually realized that he waited too long to try to fix it up and it went all away. It could be also about dying or about dead loved ones, but that's the meaning I feel more near to myself.

    I quote everyone who said that JP are really underrated, when it comes to the lyrics. I think they're absolutely... magical. They're the Judas Priest, theyrselves, that's the best I may pretend from a band.
