My Cup Runneth Over
Ed Ames Lyrics


Sometimes in the morning when shadows are deep
I lie here beside you
Just watching you sleep
And sometimes I whisper
What I'm thinking of
My cup runneth over with love

Sometimes in the evening when you do not see
I study the small things you do constantly
I memorize moments that I'm fondest of
My cup runneth over with love

In only a moment we both will be old
We won't even notice the world turning cold
And so, in these moments with sunlight above
My cup runneth over with love

My cup runneth over with love
With love

Sometimes in the mornin' when shadows are deep
I lie here beside you just watching you sleep
And sometimes I whisper what I'm thinking of
My cup runneth over with love
Sometimes in the evening when you do not see
I study the small things you do constantly
I memorize moments that I'm fondest of
My cup runneth over with love
In only a moment we both will be old
We won't even notice the world turning cold
And so, in these moments with sunlight above
My cup runneth over with love
My cup runneth over with love
With love

Correction - it's "in this moment" not "in these moments. "

I was 18 when this song came out, went to Viet Nam the whole bit. I liked this version the first time I heard it although I was afraid to admit it to my friends who were heavily into rock at the time. Well I still like it and am no longer afraid to admit it to my friends, the ones that are still around. Some music is just timeless and will last forever. Thanks Mingo aka Ed Ames. Actually Ed Ames was not Native American, but of Ukrainian descent.

Eugene Sedita

Robi D
