lyrics

Written by Mimi Naja

lie awake in the morning light
I couldn’t sleep through the easy night
it's hard to rest from a worried mind
imagining what I'd like to find

your voice is ringing in my ears
I haven't heard for three long years
‘cause you flew on down to Chapel Hill
now I hear your call
through the whippoorwill

could it be you trying to say to me?
you're still with me baby, I'm still here
had to fly but don't wonder why
‘cause all things due to you, they
they come in time

we used to sing those Broadway tunes
and Carole King, and Johnny and June
we would stoke a little fire and curl on up, baby
just the two of us

now I don’t know why I turned away
‘cause now I look back to the good ol' days
but a part of you is with me still
‘cause I hear your call,
through the whippoorwill

and other birds might flock to me
with all their songs and melodies
I love them all, I do, it's true
but when I hear that call
I know it's you
