In the Morning
(Copyright© 1983 by Robert Richey and Thom Stark--all rights reserved)

You like to play it helpless,
But you know just what to do.
And I come on so selfless,
But we both know that ain't true.
You know what I'm looking for.
I want to share the night
And wake up here, beside you in the morning light.

It's such an ancient game we play
and we both know the rules.
It doesn't matter much what we say,
'Cause the words are only tools.
I know what you're looking for:
You want to share the night
And wake up here, beside me in the morning light.

And I'm almost home
And I'm not alone,
Like I was before.

The time we've spent together,
We've grown to be such friends,
And now it seems like, whether
It starts tonight, or it ends,
We'll both get what we're looking for,
'Cause we're gonna share tonight
And wake up here, together, in the morning light.
