Before Morning

from Nuit Blanche by Marc Farre



I’m here long before morning
wide awake, three in the morning
I stand on the side of the highway
I see the lights in the distance

I’m here three in the morning
and i watch you
standing here, three in the morning
and i watch you, i watch you

last night i had the strangest dream
we were sleeping in a stream

in the silence of the day
in the steel beams by the bay

the last time, last time
the last time I change my mind
stories and sorrys and songs that
got left behind

breaking up before the light

I walk out on the highway
and i want you
I sit alone on the subway

and i want you, and i want you
I make a million suggestions
and i want you, and i want you

I have a splitting headache
and i want you, yes i need you
I have a raging heartache
says i love you, yes i love you

all this heaviness and pain
wash away just like the rain
and the whisper in the trees
and the light that starts to
