Vicki Brown - Stay with me 'til the morning

Dawn breaks above the neon lights
Soon the day dissolves the night
Warm, the sheets caress
My emptiness, as you leave
Laying here in the afterglow
Tears, in spite of all I know
Pride's a foolish thing
I can't give in, can't you see
Though you want to stay
You're gone before the day
I'll never say those words, how could I

Stay with me 'til the morning

I've walked the streets alone before
Safe, I'm locked behind my door
Strong in my belief
No joy or grief touches me
But when you close your eyes
It's then I realise
There's nothing left to prove, so darling

Stay with me 'til the morning

When you close your eyes
It's then I realise
There's nothing left to prove, so darling

Stay with me 'til the morning
Stay with me 'til the morning
