    IN THE MORNING LIGHT
    (Words and Music by Joan Baez)

    Well there you stand
    A figure at my door
    And shadows fall
    On those that are no more
    And each time I love and take the fall
    Then like the sun I rise above it all

    In the morning light
    In the morning light
    Yes now's the time
    The time I shed my tears
    And now's the time
    The time I know my fears
    Now's the time
    The time I feel the years
    But come on in
    The wind is on your heels

    In the morning light
    In the morning light
    Let us now lay down the fight
    Let us now make all things right
    At the closing of the night
    In the morning light
    In the morning light
    In the morning light

    My room is small
    The curtains are of gold
    And down below
    The Paris streets are cold
    Here in my room I've loved a thousand times
    Well, seriously, I've sung a thousand rhymes

    In the morning light
    In the morning light
    Let us now lay down the fight
    Let us now make all things right
    Standing at the edge of night
    In the morning light
    In the morning light
    In the morning light
