Nanci Griffith – San Diego Serenade lyrics

(Tom Waits)

Never saw the morning till I stayed up all night
Never saw the sunshine till I turned out the light
Never saw my hometown till I stayed away too long
I never heard the melody till I needed the song

Never saw the white line till I was leavin' you behind
Never knew I needed you till I was caught up in a bind
And I never spoke I love you till I cursed you in vain
Never felt my heart strings until I nearly went insane

Never saw the East coast until I moved to the West
I never saw the moonlight until it shone off your breast
And I never saw your heart till someone tried to steal it away
Never saw your tears till they rolled down your face

I never saw the morning till I stayed up all night
Never saw the sunshine till you turned out the light
Never saw my hometown till I stayed away too long
I never heard the melody till I needed the song
