Touch me in the morning Then just walk away We don't have tomorrow But we had yesterday
(Hey!) Wasn't it me who said that Nothing good's gonna last forever? And wasn't it me who said, Let's just be glad for the time together? It must've been hard to tell me That you've given all you had to give I can understand you're feeling that way Everybody's got their life to live
Well, I can say goodbye in the cold morning light But I can't watch love die in the warmth of the night If I've got to be strong Don't you know I need to have tonight when you're gone? Till you go I need to lie here and think about The last time that you'll touch me in the morning Then just close the door Leave me as you found me, empty like before
(Hey!) Wasn't it yesterday We used to laugh at the wind behind us? Didn't we run away and hope that time wouldn't try to find us (Didn't we run) Didn't we take each other to a place where no one's ever been? Yeah, I really need you near me tonight 'Cause you'll never take me there again
Let me watch you go with the sun in my eyes We've seen how love can grow Now we'll see how it dies If I've got to be strong Don't you know I need to have tonight when you're gone? Till you go I need to hold you until the time Your hands reach out and touch me In the morning (Mornings where blue and gold and we could feel one another living) Then just walk away (We walked with a dream to hold and we could take what the world was giving) We don't have tomorrow (There's no tomorrow here, there's only love and the time to chase it) But we had yesterday (But yesterday's gone my love, there's only now and it's time to face it) touch me in the morning

Seventhmist from 7th HeavenTo add to what Barry said, this song was recorded in the early morning hours, as was Ross's custom as she raised her children. One of her daughters said Diana would put them to bed and record all night, in order to wake and “touch" them the next morning.
Tony from San DiegoAbsolutely love this song. Diana is so sexy and vulnerable on this one.
Barry from Sauquoit, NyOne morning song bumps another out of the top spot; Diana Ross' "Touch Me in the Morning" replaced Maureen McGovern's "The Morning After" as the No. 1 record on 08-18-1973!!!
David Bowie's "Space Oddity" tells the story of an astronaut who cuts off communication and floats into space. The BBC used it extensively in their coverage of the 1969 moon landing - an odd choice considering the lyrics.
In The Beatles "When I'm 64," Paul McCartney asks a woman if she'll still be there for him when he's 64. In 2006, he got his answer when shortly before his 64th birthday, he and Heather Mills separated.
