Lyrics for Morning Yearning

A finger’s touch upon my lips
It’s a morning yearning
Pull the curtains shut,
try to keep it dark
But the sun is burning

The world awakens on the run
And will soon be yearning
With hopes of better days to come
It’s a morning yearning

Another day, another chance to get it right
Must I still be learning
Baby crying kept us up all night
With her morning yearning

Like a summer rose,
I’m a victim of the fall
But I’m soon returning
Your love’s the warmest place the sun ever shines
My morning yearning
