Four In The Morning    (1971)

It's four in the morning and once more the dawning
Just woke up the wanting in me.
Wishin' I'd never met her, knowing if I forget her
How much better off she would be.
The longer I hold on then the longer this goes on,
The harder that it's going to be.
But it's four in the morning and once more the dawning
Just woke up the wanting in me.

I've never deserved her, God knows when I hurt her
That's the last thing that I want to do.
She tries but she can't tell how she feels
But I know, too well, just what she's going through.
If I love her so much, I don't know why I can't do
The right thing and just let her be.
But it's four in the morning and once more the dawning
Just woke up the wanting in me.

Last night I told her: "This time it's all over,"
Making two times I've told her goodbye.
Last night, we broke up: this morning I woke up,
And for the fifth time, changing my mind.
I saw more love in her eyes when I left her
Than most foolish men will ever see.
An' it's four in the morning and once more the dawning
Just woke up the wanting in me.

It's four in the morning and once more the dawning
Just woke up the wanting in me.
