Joan Armatrading – Spend A Little Time lyrics

I've been waking up every morning
Not one ray of sunshine through my pane
I've been sleeping wrapped warm in sadness, yeah
Not a smile upon my face
Until one day
Glad day
That you came along
I've been singing this song
Trying to chase the frown away

Hear me singing now, sadness
I can't be with you
I don't need your hand no more
Laughter, I'd like to be with you
Why don't you come knocking, knocking
Knocking at my door

Oh I'd like to spend a little time, baby
By your fire
I'd like to spend a little time, baby
By your door
And if he calls me, smile on baby
I'll come running, oh yeah yeah
Just to spend a little time, baby
By your door
