From the recording Crack of Four

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)
