"The Morning After Baby Let Me Down" lyrics

The Morning After Baby Let Me Down

The alarm clock woke my sleeping
But I lay there for a minute
With a million cobwebs clinging
To my brain

I stopped that bell from ringing
In the time it takes a heartbeat
Then I settled back
And closed my eyes again

I reached out for my baby
For some early morning loving
Then the terrible truth
Came staggering through my head

There was just an empty pillow
And the memory of his kisses
Baby wasn't there beside me
In the bed

It's the morning after baby let me down
It's the daybreak
And the heartbreak that I found
Only silence to torment me
No strong hands to touch me gently
It's the morning
After baby let me down

There was nothing to hold on to
But the sheets that fell around me
And I started into trembling
Like a leaf

How could he ever leave me?
He was more than just a lover
And he knew all the ways
To make me feel complete

I can taste the salty teardrops
God, it's getting hard to swallow
Hope a glass of wine
Will take his love away

Got no appetite for eating
Just a sick and empty feeling
What a good for nothing way
To start the day

It's the morning after baby let me down
It's the daybreak
And the heartbreak that I found
Only silence to torment me
No strong hands to touch me gently
It's the morning
After baby let me down
