It's morning,
and we slept the night away~
It happened,
now we can't turn back the hands of time
(oh no)

Yes we've stolen this moment,
We forgot to face, one simple fact
We both belong~ to someone else
As we slept, the night away

It's morning,
sunlight shines across your sleeping face (uh huh)
A new~ day,
brings reality that we must go our
Se~parate way
What a lovely night, we had (yeah yeah)
As we shared each other's love
We forgot about all the pain we'd cause
as we slept the night away

Hook
As we lay
We forgot about tomorrow as we lay (mmhmm, hey hey)
As we lay
We didn't think about the price we'd have to pay( oh no, no no no no no no no)

It's morning
And now it's time for us to say goodbye
Goodbye baby
you're lea~ving me,
I know you got to hurry home to face your wi~fe, whoa
I would never never want to hurt her no
She would never understand
You belonged to me for
just one night
as we slept the night away

(whoa) (mmmmm) (whoa)

I would never never want to hurt her no
She would never understand
You belonged to me for
just one night
as we slept the night away

Hook
As We Lay
We forgot about tomorrow
As we lay
We didn't think about the price we'd have to pay...oh no hey

We should have counted up the cost
but instead we got lost
in the second, in the minute, in the hour
hey hey, hey as we lay
we forgot about tomorrow, as we lay
whoa~~~

It's morning (it's morning) (oo oo)
It's morning (it's morning) (whoa~~)
It's morning (whoa~~)

    Sounds to me like a certain twilight actress and a certain director shoulda listened to this song lol... Jk... This song has twisted memories. I heard it from when my father used to play it... Then when my mother. They were both with other people at the time. As i got older i understood. Passion doesn't look at bindings, it looks at right now. This magic moment that we get to share. They took the time and loved all night long and fell asleep content in each others arms... They didnt forget about their respective responsibilites... They ignored them. Thats how much that one night meant... Even if they couldn ever do it again... My 2 cents

    Ehm

    The meaning of this song is the situation of a woman having a one night stand. Both her n da man belong 2 someone else but they have such strong feelings for each other. They both face the fact that their lustful night had an affect on not only them.
