Mickey Newbury - "Good Morning Dear" lyrics

Good Morning, Dear

Were the night's any sweeter
The morning's any cooler
When she was here
Was her mind grown accustomed
To hearin', "Good Morning, Dear"'

Should I still feel the sunshine
Remembering brings to mind
In my thought's of her
When Lord, we both know thing's
Could never be
The way they were

Her little girl confusion
Built the walls of illusion
Between right and wrong
That stand there between
Her and a dream,
That I cherished too long

All faded and tattered
Once all that mattered
When she was here
And this mind had grown accustomed
To hearing, "Good Mornin', Dear"..

Were the night's any sweeter
The morning's any cooler
When she was here
Or was her mind grown accustomed
To hearing, "Good Morning Dear"...

Should I still feel the sunshine
Remembering bring's to mind
In my thought's of her
Lord, we both know the thing's
Would never be the way they were..
