"San Diego Serenade" as written by and Tom Waits....
I never saw the morning 'til I stayed up all night
I never saw the sunshine 'til you turned out the light
I never saw my hometown 'til I stayed away to long
I never heard the melody 'til I needed a song
I never saw the white line 'til i was leaving you behind
I never knew I needed you until I was caught up in a bind
I never spoke I love you 'til I cursed your name in vain
I never felt my heart strings until I nearly went insane

um hum umum
um hum ummm

I never saw the east coast 'til I moved to the west
I never saw the moonlight 'til it shone off your breast
I never saw your heart 'til someone tried to steal, tried to steal it away
I never saw your tears until they rolled down your face

um hum umum
um hum ummm

I never saw the morning 'til I stayed up all night
I never saw the sunshine 'til you turned out the light
I never saw my hometown until I stayed away to long
I never heard the melody 'til I needed a song
