Well the morning's come 
And Lord my mind is aching
The sunshine's quietly standing at my door
Just like the dawn 
My heart is silently breaking
With my tears it goes tumbling to the floor.

Once again the whole town will be talking
It's more I've seen the pity in their eyes
They could never understand 
It's her sorrow not a man

No matter what they say I know she tried
Baby's packed her soft things 
And oh she's left me
I know she never meant to make me cry

It's not her heart Lord 
It's her mind she didn't mean to be unkind
Why she even woke me up to say goodbye.
