Me and the Morning

This exquisite song about a child who is the first person awake in their house captures the quiet, mystical beauty and peace of early morning.  It can help children get in touch with that quiet, nurturing place in their hearts.  From Red's Parents' Choice Gold Award-winning "Down the Do RE Mi" CD.

Themes: experiencing beauty, calm, solitude and peace of heart

Me and the Morning

Me and the morning... the morning and me
Slip out of bed so quietly
The only sound is my feet on the floor
As I pitter patter to the bedroom door
It's just me and the morning... the morning and me
Everyone else is fast asleep
Even my little brother is not yet awake
He's always up first but... not today

Chorus
It's just me and the morning
The morning and me
Everything's quiet
And clear as can be

Me and the morning go up to the glass
And look out the window at the sparkling grass
Each and every blade has a dewdrop that shines
And no other eyes see this world but mine

Chorus

Me and the morning... the morning and me
Slip out of bed so quietly
The only sound is my feet on the floor
As I pitter patter to the bedroom door
It's just me and the morning... the morning and me
Everyone else is fast asleep
Even my little brother is not yet awake
He's always up first but... not today
