Cheryl Wheeler "Piper" by Cheryl Wheeler (Cheryl Wheeler)

1st Verse

Early mornin' sunrise
Come and pull the song from me
So I can turn away
And rest my tired eyes
I can't escape the haunting
Of the lonely melody
It runs around and 'round
Without a compromise

1st Chorus

So where you gonna go
And what you gonna do
You know I can't say no
Can't say goodbye to you
I can't stop the flow
'Til you've decided to
Mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm

2nd Verse

The song runs like a piper
Like a drummer through my brain
With silence all around
Feels so apart from me
I could sit and cry
For all the love and all the pain
That brings itself to mind
Inside a harmony

2nd Chorus

And the softest morning light
Can't shine as soft as you
The sweetest love in sight
Can't love me like you do
The swiftest bird in flight
Can't climb the path to you
Mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm

3rd Verse

Now it's fully dawn
And nightly silence breaks away
Into the distant sounds
Of cars and factories
Traces linger on
And slowly fade into the day
And leave me with these rounds
All hummin' back to me

3rd Chorus

So now I bid you well
And take myself to bed
The tune you had to tell
Was soft and kindly said
And I still feel the swell
From all you comforted
Mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm
