Angel of the Morning Lyrics
They'll be no strings to bind your head Not if love can find your heart There's no need to take a stand For it was I who choose to start I see no need to take me home I'm old enough to face the dawn Just call me angel of the morning (Angel) Just touch my cheek before you leave me (Babe) Just call me angel of the morning (Angel) Then slowly turn away from me Maybe the suns light will be dim And it won't matter anyhow If mornings echo says we've sinned Well it was what I wanted now And if were victims of the night I won't be blinded by the light Just call me angel of the morning (Angel) Just touch my cheek before you leave me (Babe) Just call me angel of the morning (Angel) Then slowly turn away I won't beg you to stay .. With me... Through the Tears .. Or the day or years, Ba a a be... Just call me angel of the morning (Angel) Just touch my cheek before you leave me (Babe) Just call me angel of the morning (Angel) Just touch my cheek before you leave me (Darlin) Just call me angel of the morning (Angel) Just touch my cheek before you leave me (Dar-arling) Source My iPhone.
