By Morning

I have seen the fire in the heavens
I have seen the stars that choose to fall
I’ll be there by morning
Or I won’t be there at all

Traveling the world as a stranger
Answering the lonely spirit’s call
I’ll be there by morning
Or I won’t be there at all

Days when the sky smiles upon you
Days when your back’s against the wall
I’ll be there by morning
Or I won’t be there at all

Time winds down like a clockwork toy
Everything bows down that once was tall
I’ll be there by morning
Or I won’t be there at all

Some men blaze a trail of golden ashes
Others are forever made to crawl
I’ll be there by morning
Or I won’t be there at all

It often seems that hatred wins the battles
But it’s never won a war as I recall
I’ll be there by morning
Or I won’t be there at all

I’ll be there by morning
Or I won’t be there at all
