1. Late At Night

From the recording I Didn’t Mean To Fall In Love


Mornin’s come, and I just can’t leave our bed
I should be wakin’ up from paintin’ the town red
But I never left this lonely room
Where I’m drownin’ in the memory of her sweet perfume
And dreadin’ the comin’ of late at night

When she left, it was like my world closed in
It went dark; it’s the worst place I’ve ever been
I’ve tried to escape back into the light
I’ve tried everything, but it’s still out of sight
And I’m dreadin’ the comin’ of late at night

Late at night when the moon is bright
And I see her heavenly face in the sky
I’m wishin,’ Lord, I could make it right
But all I can do is cry
Some say twilight is the loneliest time
But that’s not how it is for me
It’s late at night when the sun don’t shine
On the love that used to be


VERSE (second half)
Now it don’t matter if I breathe or not
The sun’s goin’ down no matter what
And I’m dreadin’ the comin’ of late at night


Lord, I’m dreadin’ the comin’ of late at night
