Story

THIS SONG WAS WRITTEN IN THE EARLY MORNING, JUST AFTER SUNRISE AT A SMALL CAMPGROUND IN OHIO.  MY WIFE AND I HAD STOPPED THERE FOR THE NIGHT AND PICKED A SITE RIGHT BESIDE A BEAUTIFUL POND.   MY WIFE SWEARS THIS WAS THE NIGHT OUR DAUGHTER, SARAH, WAS CONCEIVED.

Lyrics

EARLY MORNING MAGIC

 

( VERSE)                       

 MIST UPON THE WATER....RISES UP TO MEET THE SKY

THE FIRST RAYS OF SUNRISE....DRIVES THE SLEEP FROM MY EYES

 

EARLY MORNING MAGIC....SAY HELLO TO THE NEW DAY

EARLY MORNING MAGIC....GIVES ME PEACE ON MY WAY

 

 

(VERSE)

IRIDESCENT RAINBOWS....GENTLY  FLOATING WITH THE BREEZE

A NEWBORNE SUN IS RISING....EVER SLOWLY THROUGH THE TREES

 

EARLY MORNING MAGIC....SAY HELLO TO THE NEW DAY

EARLY MORNING MAGIC....GIVES ME PEACE ON MY WAY

 

 

(BRIDGE)

AS I TAKE THIS GIFT OF SILENCE....GIVING THANKS FOR ALL I SEE

I FEEL THE WIND AMONG THE FLOWERS.....FEEL THE EARTH BENEATH MY FEET

 

AND AS I STAND UPON THE MOUNTAIN....EARTH AND SKY THEY SEEM TO MEET

HERE I GATHER ALL MY SORROWS......GENTLY LAY THEM AT THY FEET

 

CAUSE IT’S YOU I  WANT BESIDE ME....TAKE MY LOVE AND SET ME FREE

SO WE CAN WANDER HERE FOREVER......LIVING LIFE IN HARMONY

 

OOHH....OOHH.....OOHH....OOHH

OOHH....OOHH....OOHH....OOHH

 

 EARLY MORNING MAGIC...GIVES ME PEACE ON MY WAY

EARLY MORNING MAGIC...GIVES ME PEACE ON MY WAY

OOHH...OOHH...OOHH

OOHH...OOHH...OOHH
