As We Lay

This song is by Shirley Murdock and appears on the album Shirley Murdock (1985).

It's morning and we've slept the night away
It happened, now we can't turn back the hands of time

Yes we've stolen this moment
We forgot to face one simple fact
We both belong to someone else
As we slept the night away

It's morning, sunlight shines across your sleeping face
A new day brings reality that we must go our separate way
What a lovely night we had
As we shared each other's love
We forgot about all the pain we caused as we slept the night away

As we lay
We forgot about tomorrow as we lay
As we lay
We didn't think about the price we'd have to pay

It's morning
And now it's time for us to say goodbye
Goodbye baby
You're leaving me
I know you've got to hurry home to face your wife
I would never never want to hurt her, no
She would never understand
You belonged to me for just one night
As we slept the night away

I would never never want to hurt her, no
She would never understand
You belonged to me for just one night
As we slept the night away

As we lay
We forgot about tomorrow as we lay
As we lay
We didn't think about the price we'd have to pay, oh no

We should have counted up the cost
But instead we got lost
In the second, in the minute, in the hour
As we lay
We forgot about tomorrow as we lay

It's morning
It's morning
It's morning
