The morning comes with such pain
But it’s nothing like
The dose I get when it’s night
And I can’t help but wondering just what it is
Ain’t I living my life right?
The cigarettes I’m smoking don’t realize
Nor does the glass from which I drink
For how are they to know just
Just what it is to be a man about to sink
Oh no (oh no) it’s not my time to go
Oh no (oh no) before I go, I’ve got to show something
(The light keeps gettin dimmer) hey, but what’s that to me?
(The morning comes with each night)
A voice keeps callin’ my name so loud and so clear
I’ll pretend I’m not here
Oh no (oh no) it’s not my time to go
Oh no (oh no) before I go, I’ve got to show

No I can’t go yet, no, I’ve
Something to do
And it might take a bit more time
The time it takes to get up and walk out the door
And see the world as before
Oh no (oh no) it’s not my time to go
Oh no (oh no) before I go I’ve got to show something
