storybook children lyrics – bette midler

daybreak
how can i ever leave this place beside you?
you were the only one i ever cried to
the night is through

now it’s heartache
i got to get home before he sees it’s daybreak
light from the sky is shining through the curtain lace
i never really meant to stay

and now it’s daybreak
we were just sitting and talking
oh, who would have thought we’d be spending the night
dreading the light of daybreak?

how can i leave this place beside you?
how can i leave you baby, leave you?
i don’t want to go

and now it’s daybreak
we were like storybook children
hey, but like all good fairy tales, this one must end
here is the end

it’s daybreak
how can i ever leave this place beside you?
you were the only one i ever cried to
the night is through

lord knows it’s daybreak
and it feels like heartbreak
i don’t want to leave you
i don’t want to leave you, i need you!

looks like it’s daybreak
but it feels like it’s heartache
i don’t want to leave you
don’t make me leave you, i need you!

daybreak
sunlight shining through the lace
i need you
sun is smiling on your face
i need you
don’t make me leave you!
lord!
