  • Morning is the Long Way Home
  • by Leo Kottke
  • Copyright 1973 Overdrive Music/ASCAP
  • recorded by Leo Kottke on:
  • 1973 "Ice Water" (Capitol)
  • 1987 "The Best of Leo Kottke" (Capitol)
  • I heard your voice at midnight
  • By the river shore
  • I saw your child sleeping
  • Behind an open door
  • The moon was in the river
  • Shining up from the floor
  • And the fish swam like moonlight
  • Through your child's closing door
  • And morning is the long way home
  • The fisherman was drowning
  • By his broken heel
  • His screams were tiny bubbles
  • And his tongue made of steel
  • When he died his teeth made stones
  • For your lonely child to feel
  • And his eyes like prayers were quiet
  • When you heard his tongues of steel
  • And morning is the long way home
  • The ghost of ghosts was passing
  • And the grasses waved like hair
  • I Knew I'd die forgotten
  • I'm the whisper of your care
  • The water would surround me
  • And my body would despair
  • But my heart would understand
  • The door that's closing there
  • And morning is the long way home
