Struggling (Old Man Markley)

Silently you're gone Getting up before the dawn Backing out the driveway Before the paper hits the lawn The warmth of the sunrise Is lying in your place While you are far away Another day of finding ways to make the hours pass (Ways to make the hours pass) Till the last grain in the hour glass (Last grain in the hour glass) Has finished keeping time Struggling when you head back in tomorrow And I'm left all alone With a cup of morning sorrow You're the best part of my day And now the day is almost done And I know it won't be long Till you come back through that door And I've got you in my arms The sincerity of love Felt in your warm embrace That nothing could replace Another day of finding ways to make the hours pass (Ways to make the hours pass) Till the last grain in the hour glass (Last grain in the hour glass) Has finished keeping time Struggling when you head back in tomorrow And I'm still all alone In this home that's mostly borrowed You've become my family Tomorrow's twin will follow and you'll do your part With dedication that you've displayed right from the start Perfection is the hardest act to follow So tomorrow wake me up before you leave Struggling when you head back in tomorrow And I'm still all alone In this home that's mostly borrowed You've become my family Struggling when you head back in tomorrow And I'm left all alone With a cup of morning sorrow You're the best part of my day
