Morning Theft

This song is by Jeff Buckley and appears on the album Sketches For My Sweetheart The Drunk (1998).

This song has been covered by Ane Brun under the title "Morning Theft".
Time takes care of the wound
Or so I can believe
You had so much to give
You thought I couldn't see

Gifts for bootheels 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

What am I still to you
Some thief who stole from you?
Or some fool drama queen
Whose chances were few?

Love 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 into starlight

Meet me tomorrow night
Or any day you want
I have no more right to wonder
Just how or when

You know the meaning fits
There's no relief in this
I miss my beautiful friend

I had to send it away
To bring her back again
