Now these streets lie empty and still
Warmed in the early light
The clear morning air breathes life into day
All of the world is lost deep in dream
Oblivious to the night
That left me awake here where I lay

But here I am before the dawn
Tired and ready for sleep
The darkness has now almost gone
And with it, the thoughts so deep

The ticking clock that hangs on the wall
Counted the hours away
I thought they might be my last here with you
Now a crimson sky is painted across
The world outside our door
And gold vapour trails scar the rising blue

I had to see this day begin
And know that the night would end
The sleepless fears so deep within
Evaporate once again

Now here you lie so close by side
Wrapped in my arms so tight
And there’s where you slept all of the while
The hopes and dreams that yesterday held
Seemed fragile in the night
But now reborn within your peaceful smile

Please don’t wake just yet, angel
A beautiful day awaits
The sunlight cast by Summer’s spell
Heals all it illuminates
