Morning-after blues
Those morning-after blues
I feel down to my shoes

when the one I left behind
came around one last time

Stirring up my heart, and leaving me –
with a feeling I can’t explain

I thought the pain was over
but thinking won’t heal the overwhelming desire I had in my heart for us two
and the hope I held onto for so long

Now it’s too late to hope that I’ll ever wake up beside you again
and now all I have left is them blues

Chorus
those morning-after blues!
Those morning-after blues!
Lord take me away to a place
to a place where I won’t have to feel
Them old morning-after blues!

In the middle of the night
I hear your voice as clear as day calling my name

Through life-and-death I know
that I will always love you so
and you will never go from my memory

Our hearts have a mind of their own
I really should have known
that our suffering would be unending

They say it’s better to have loved and lost
but when you really weigh the cost
it comes up too close to call

It was worth it for sure
as long as we can endure

Chorus
those morning-after blues!
Those morning-after blues!
Lord take me away to a place
where I don’t have to feel
them old morning-after blues!
