'Til the Morning


Another long night
Has come and gone
She's feeling unfinished
He's feeling forlorn

But she just can't see that
And he doesn't know
That the sorrow between them divides them

Chorus
And he stays on his side
And she stays on her side
And it stays that way 'til the morning
'Til the morning
She stifles her tears
He suffers his pride
And it stays that way 'til the morning

The energy's high
But the fan's not blowing
It's too long a distance
For him to be going

His pockets are empty
And there's a numbness inside
He's gotten so damned good at hiding

Chorus
And he stays on his side
And she stays on her side
And it stays that way 'til the morning
'Til the morning
She swallows her tears
He suffers his pride
And it stays that way 'til the morning

She lies on her back
Counting tiles on the ceiling
The numbness replaces
The pain he is feeling

But she doesn't know that
And he just can't see
What a harbor there is for the asking

Chorus
And he stays on his side
And she stays on her side
And it stays that way 'til the morning
'Til the morning
She stifles her tears
He suffers his pride
And it stays that way 'til the morning
