"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 CommentThis song is very beautiful, which is kind of odd if you think about it, because this is the same band that released Painkiller and Screaming For Vengeance (although that was quite a flamboyant album in parts)

    I agree that it's about someone dying and being desired by their lover. Wishing they wouldn't have to leave.
