  • 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 need 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

    Maybe the sun's light will be dim
    And it won't matter anyhow
    If morning's 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 day, of the years
    Baby, baby, baby
    Just call me angel of the morning, (angel)
