Like A Lover
Gerald Albright Lyrics


Like a lover, the morning sun
Slowly rises and kisses you awake
Your smile so soft and drowsy
As you let it play upon your face

Oh, how I dream
I could be like the morning sun to you

Like a lover, the river wind
Slides and ripples its finger through your hair
Upon your cheek, it lingers
Never having known a sweeter place

Oh, how I dream
I could be like the river wind to you

How I envy your cup that knows your lips
Let it be me, my love
And a table that feels your fingertips
Let it be me, let me be your love

Bring it into the endless days and nights
Without you

Like a lover, the velvet moon
Shares your pillow and watches while you sleep
Its light arrives on tiptoe
Gently taking you in its embrace

Oh, how I dream
I could be like the velvet moon to you

I could be like the morning sun
I could be like a lover to you

As much as I love Will's voice and he does a good job covering this beautiful tune; I have to say with all honesty that I love Natalie Cole's version so much better. If you haven't heard it, it's worth a listen. You may agree or disagree with me, but if you love the song, it's worth hearing other versions.
