Watching the sun, watching it come
Watching it come up over the rooftops.

Cloudy and warm, maybe a storm,
You can never quite tell from the morning.

And it's going to be a day,
There is really no way to say no to the morning.

Yes, it's going to be a day, there is really nothing left to say,

But, come on morning

Waiting for mail, maybe a tale from an old friend, or, even a lover.

Sometimes there's none, but we have fun
Thinking of all who might have written.

And it's going to be a day There is really no way to say no
To the morning

Yes, it's going to be a day, there is really nothing left to say,

But, come on morning



And maybe there are seasons
And maybe they change
And maybe true love is not so strange.



The sounds of the day, now, they hurry away
Now, they are gone until tomorrow.

One day will break, and, you will wake
And you will rake your hands across your eyes and, realize

That it's going to be a day, there is really no way to say no
To the morning.

Yes, it's going to be a day, there is really nothing left to say but
Come on morning.

And maybe there are seasons, an,d maybe they change
And maybe true love is not so strange.

    General CommentI just listened to this song while I saw the sun rise. I'm still crying.

    MemoryThis song has helped me face many mornings when I felt like pulling the covers back over my head and not facing the reality of my life, But the lyrics would run through my head from listening to Dan Fogleberg in College many years ago:
    And it's going to be a day
    There is really no way to say
    "No" to the morning
    Yes it's going to be a day
    There is really nothing left to say
    But "Come on morning"

    With Dan's words and music in my head I've enjoyed many days I did not think I had the courage, strength, or stamina to even begin.

    General CommentIt's a beautiful song but there are a few mistakes in the lyrics and you go to other lyric sites for the same song and there are the same mistakes, leading me to believe lyric sites copy and paste. You need to have a songwriter listen. If a word doesn't make sense, it's probably wrong. :-)

    Lyric CorrectionI tried and they said it was copyrighted and could not be changed.
    one is a spelling error tale instead of tail.
    another is true love, not to love
    and another is "one day will break"
