Morning Song For Sally Lyrics

by Nanci Griffith

As the morning light stretched in across my bed, I thought of you
Remembering your laughing eyes and all we said, I love you too
As all my thoughts of you pass 'fore my face a thousand times
The way they race my heart I cannot say it all in lines

How the short time together lasts so long, makes me strong
As two weeks came and went then you and I were gone, living on
For it seems our love was destined to be caught in other nets
But the love we held so brief, I'd chance again without regret

Yes, standing by the road has been my song
Before, much too long but now somehow I'm forced
To see me there once more and that's the song
For my waking thoughts of you are but extensions of the dream
Without you here beside me, I'll never know all that they mean

As the morning light stretched in across my bed, I thought of you
Remembering your laughing eyes and all we said, I love you too
As all my thoughts of you pass 'fore my face a thousand times
The way they race my heart I cannot say it all in lines
