"Angel Of The Morning" as written by and Chip Taylor....
There'll be no strings to bind your hands
Not if my love can't bind your heart
And there's no need to take a stand
For it was I who chose to start
I see no need to take me home
I'm old enough to face the dawn

Just call me angel of the morning, (angel)
Just touch my cheek before you leave me, baby
Just call me angel of the morning, (angel)
Then slowly turn away from me

Maybe the sun's light will be dim
And it won't matter anyhow
If morning's echo says we've sinned
It was what I wanted now
And if we're victims of the night
I won't be blinded by the light

Just call me angel of the morning, (angel)
Just touch my cheek before you leave me, baby
Just call me angel of the morning, (angel)
Then slowly turn away
I won't beg you to stay with me
Through the tears of the day, of the years
Baby, baby, baby

Just call me angel of the morning, (angel)
Just touch my cheek before you leave me, baby
Just call me angel of the morning, (angel)
Just touch my cheek before you leave me, darling
Just call me angel of the morning, angel
Just touch my cheek before you leave me, darling

    General CommentShe's speaking from the night before. "I know what's going on, I know we may feel differently in the morning, but I'm happy here and I want to take that risk. I promise to let you go gracefully, if that's what you want, but maybe the day will be just like the night and it's going to be OK."

    General CommentIt's already been well-explained. I used to sing this version of the song in Wendy W's ear the start of every English class senior year. I sat behind her and she'd try to swat me away, but I was relentless. I can't sing and I could seldom recall all the words (correctly at least:). It's a catchy track that has stuck in my head for decades.

    General CommentNo comments? Damn shame - this is a beautiful song, beautifully performed. I wonder whatever happened to Ms Newton?

    General CommentI always thought it was "Just touch my teeth before you leave me." It doesn't really change the meaning of the song, but it does make it more clean and less passionate. I prefer my lyrics. :p

    General CommentMeaning of the song is about the walk of shame in the morning after a one-night-stand. Actually, I believe she prefers to call it the walk of an angle.
