(Ramsey)

 

Information:

We Can Make the Morning was written by Jay Ramsey and recorded by Elvis on May 20, 1971, at RCA's Nashville studios. Paired with Until It's Time for You to Go, the record had a seven-week stay on Billboard's Easy-Listening chart, peaking at #9.

 

Lyrics:

I just thought I heard a small voice crying

Looked again and saw that it was me
I feel like a little boy denying
That he fears the night 'cause he can't see

Then a larger thought said stop your crying
Don't be scared to search 'cause you may find
Fate holds out a candle for your footsteps
Time rolls back the shadows of your mind

1. It's a long, long lonely night
You can make the morning if you try
It's a long, long lonely night
Oh, we can make the morning if we try
Girl, we can make the morning you and I
Together, together, together

Loneliness is darkness first companion
Spend the night alone and faith may bend
Share it all and see how fear starts fading
Chase away the shadows with a friend

Dawn's elusive light is just beginning
Now the day can push away the night
Dreams can make the sun feel much brighter
Hope creates a foothold for the light

1. (repeat)

It's a long, long lonely night
We can make the morning if we try
It's a long, long lonely night
We can make the morning if we try
It's a long, long lonely night
We can make the morning if we try...
