  • Lyrics: If you’re gonna go, go now/don’t wanna see your shadow moving by/like a storm across the sky/like the echoes from your eyes/as we’re waking in the morning/if you’re gonna go, go quick/turn your face from the wind/you’re never gonna see this one again/giving you her body and her smiling as we’re waking in the morning/ maybe you should just lay down/I promise to keep my promises/no more of my running around/down the dark and dusty road/and like the rollin river flows/and whose bed will I unfold my sadness on?/so just stay with me this morning/ if you’re gonna go, go fast/your face is a photograph/and it all comes running back like/when I held your laugh/in my hands in the morning/if you’re gonna go, go softly/while your touch and taste are off me/and the choirs of birds sing loftily/and the constellations breathe crossly/on my hands in the morning/ maybe you should just lay down/I promise to keep my promises/no more of my running around/down the dark and dusty road/and like the rollin river flows/and whose bed will I unfold my sadness on?/so just stay with me this morning/ so I’ll go and I’ll go lightly/with the breeze breathing slighty/and your eyes are closed so tightly/at the sun blazing brightly/at the skyline this morning/so I’ll go and I’ll go forever/but forever ain’t that long/just 90 years and then we’re gone/and our bones will sing this song/and we’ll come back as the dawn/makin love every morning/so just stay with me this morning.
