Before the Night Becomes the Dawn

from Right Here and Now by Owen Temple



Before the night becomes the dawn
I'll be beside my only one
Baby knows that when its dark I'm gone
But I'll be back before the night becomes the dawn

I travel up the road with songs to sing
And baby waits at home and wears my ring
She knows that I'll be back just when I can
Baby says she's glad that I'm her man
She understands just why I've got to go
Though she says there's times she'll miss me so
So I don't have extra time to hang around
Cause I know that she's at home in another town


You can make friends out of strangers anywhere
And in any place you can find someone who'll care
A hundred things to do and places you can see
But I'm thinking 'bout that girl that waits for me
You can't make yourself at home in some motel
So when I call to say if things went well
She asks if I'll stay out of town tonight
And I tell her I'll be there by morning's light


By the time the sun has made its trip around
In that bayou city I'll be found
As the shining sun reflects across the sea
In her loving arms is where I'm bound to be
