I know the sun's about to come up
I close my eyes anyway
My mouth is dry and the sheets are cold
And will be still come break of day

You called me up just to surprise me
To hear my voice, see what I'd say
I only whispered, and then hung up
Whispered "wait til break of day"

At break of day I'm ending all of it
And so don't say you've had a ball
Dawn is mine, but I will share it
With whatever bird will wear it
On her body bare and pink
Now what do you think of break of day

I locked my door, I should unlock it
What if you should come this way
And in and have a drink and dancing
Dancing till the break of day

And then to bed we'd dance towards
And tiredly kiss and roll in hay
But waking in the evening I see
You left after break of day

At break of day I'm ending all of it
And so don't say you've had a ball
Dawn is mine, but I will share it
With whatever bird will wear it
On her body bare and pink
Now what do you think of break of day

At break of day I'm ending all of it
And so don't say you've had a ball
Dawn is mine, but I will share it
With whatever bird will wear it
On her body bare and pink
Now what do you think of break of day

I hate myself when I'm alone
It's just with you I feel okay
And so tomorrow you'll fell sorrow
When I am gone at break of day

    General CommentSuch an under appreciated album. My sister gave me and my wife a mixed tape of love songs including this song when we got married. I couldn't stop listening to this song. I presume that this guy is threatening to kill himself because this woman won't commit to him. I don't know. Great song, though.
