"Before The Dawn" as written by and Glenn Raymond/downing Tipton....
Before the dawn I hear you whisper
In your sleep don't let the morning take him
Outside the birds begin to call
As if to summon up my leaving

It's been a lifetime since I found someone
Since I found someone who would stay
I've waited too long and now you're leaving
Oh please don't take it all away

It's been a lifetime since I found someone
Since I found someone who would stay
I've waited too long and now you're leaving
Oh please don't take it all away

Before the dawn I hear you whisper
In your sleep don't let the morning take him

    General CommentMy interpretation of the song is that it's about a person dreaming of someone they loved who has died, and the lyrics to the song are from the words of the deceased's spirit.

    "Don't let the morning take him" supports it, because come morning they'll be gone again.

    Feel free to chop it down if you like, but that's what the lyrics mean to me.
