Skeeter Davis – Before The Sunrise lyrics

I guess I'd better try again to straighten up my tie again before I leave
The party's over the laughter's died
There's no one in this room but you and me
Though your lips are honey sweet
And you're so close that I can feel your heartbeat.

Tears would fill somebody's eyes
If we don't make it on before the sunrise
We could make excuses play with all late hours and the wine
Anything we say or do won't keep the sunup comin' up on time.

So I guess I'd better turn and go
There's one thing that you should know, Babe, you're the one
If not that I don't want you too
'Cause you know that you could stay until the dawn
When daylight is breaking when our home whenver day awaken
Tears would fill somebody's eyes
If we don't make it on before the sunrise.

Tears would fill somebody's eyes
If we don't make it on before the sunrise...
