Lyric:
There'll be no strings to bind your hands not if my love can't bind your heart
And there's no need to take a stand for it was I who chose to start
I see no reason to take me home I'm old enough to face the dawn

Just call me angel of the morning angel
Just touch my cheek before you leave me baby
Just call me angel of the morning angel
Then slowly turn away from me

Maybe the sun's light will be dim and it won't matter anyhow
If morning echo says we've sinned well it was what I wanted now
And if we're victims of the night I won't be blinded by the light

Just call me angel of the morning angel
Just touch my cheek before you leave me baby
Just call me angel of the morning angel
Then slowly turn away
I won't beg you to stay with me
Through the tears of the days of the years

Baby baby just call me angel of the morning angel
Just touch my cheek before you leave me baby
Just call me angel of the morning angel
Just touch my cheek before you leave me baby
