morning theft lyrics – jeff buckley

time takes care of the wound
so i can believe
you had so much to give
you thought i couldn’t see

gifts for boot heels to crush
promises deceived
i had to send it away
to bring us back again

your eyes and body brighten
silent waters, deep
your precious daughter in the
other room, asleep

a kiss “goodnight” from every
stranger that i meet
i had to send it away
to bring us back again

morning theft
unpretender left

true self is what
brought you here, to me
a place where we can
accept this love

friendship battered down by
useless history
unexamined failure

but what am i still to you
some thief who stole from you?
or, some fool drama queen
whose chances were few?

that brings us to who we need
a place where we can save
a heart that beats as
both siphon and reservoir

you’re a woman, i’m a calf
you’re a window, i’m a knife
we come together
making chance in the starlight

meet me tomorrow night
or any day you want
i have no right to wonder
just how, or when

you know the meaning fits
there’s no relief in this
i miss my beautiful friend

i have to send it away
to bring her back again.
