Lyrics

Crack of Four

Crack of four in the morning, crack open the door

It’s a head, it’s a clock, it’s a man alive and more

It’s a wonder, it’s a marvel. It’s a miraculous thing

 to come home in the evening and find your man sleeping

.

(Chorus)

 Jeannie’s gonna come home all alone tonight

No cat in the back. No cops and making all the green lights

Yes, she will. Yes, she will

 

 

I catch your eye. I catch my breath. Catch myself thinking thoughts

No, no, no! Yes, yes, yes! I’m crossfired and caught

This power that compels me is impossible to fight

I lose my grip and let it slip. My guard falls down tonight

 

(Chorus)

 

 

Crack of four in the morning. Crack open my eyes

An empty glass, an open book and a pad and pencil bed side

I turn the page. It’s open space. It’s possibility

Arms open wide I run outside and breathe in all that air for free

 

(Chorus)
