Morning Sorrow

D              A
Twas but a cold and lonesome night,
G             C
when I finally realized. . .
D                A
realized that the only true love in my life,
G       A          G        A
desires not me . . . no, . . not me. .
B     A         G
yes, of course not me,
B           A         G
but yearns for my own flesh and blood.
B     A              G     –     G
Yes, the very blood that runs through my veins,
D      A      G       D
pulses through hers as well.

E   D    A
Can she not see . . .
B/Bm     A     G     A
what she is doing to me?
E   D    A
Can she not see. . .
B/Bm     A      G    A
the streaks these tears leave?
E    D    A
Does she not care?
B/Bm     A       G     A
That tommorow I may not be there,
G         A      B/Bm           A
be there to have my feelings hurt anymore;
B/Bm    A            G       A
or to have my heart crushed once more.

E     D     A
So as I end this. . .
B/Bm       A
full of thoughts of her;
G           A
and him full of thoughts of her.
E       D      A
I plunge this very pen,
B/Bm        A
into the hollow emptiness. . .
G         A           G              A   –    A
where my heart . . . once lay . . .  in sadness
