my lyricsbox
get ringtone
The alarm clock woke my sleepin' I lay there for a minute
With a million cobwebs clinging to my brain
I stopped that bell from ringing about the times it takes a heartbeat
Then I settled back and closed my eyes again

Reached out for my baby for some early morning lovin'
Terrible truth came staggerin' through my head
Lord there was nothin' that goes on to lay around me
That woman she wasn't beside the Killer in the bed

(It's the mornin' after baby let me down
It's the daybreak and the heartbreak that I found)
Only silence to torment me no soft hands to touch me gently
It's the mornin' after baby let me down

There was nothing to hold on to but the sheets that fell around me
My God I was tremblin' like a leaf
How could that woman leave me she was more than just a lover
Every bit a lady warm and sweet

I can taste the salty teardrops it's gettin' hard to swallow
But a glass of bourbon takes that lump away (yes it does)
Ain't got no appetite for eatin' I got sick I got an empty feelin'
What a good for nothing way to start the day

(It's the mornin' after baby...
Yeah it's the mornin' after baby...
This song is from the album "Mercury Smashes...And Rockin' Sessions".
