  • I'm waiting for the morning light
    Then every night I wonder why
    I always try to play it cool
    I mean hello, but say goodbye
    And I can't help myself
    I'm wide awake all through the night
    Keep waiting for the morning light

    And here I'm all alone
    Sitting by the telephone
    And I wonder why, I wonder why, I wonder why
    I keep laughing when I wanna cry
    And I wonder why

    Every day seems like there's no tomorrow
    And every night I wonder why
    Do I always seem to say it too
    When things don't always turn out right
    And there you sit inside my picture frame
    But it's not the same
    Ever since you said good bye

    And here I'm all alone
    Sitting by the telephone
    And I'm wide awake, still wide awake, all through the night
    Keep waiting for the morning light

    I always try to play it so cool
    And I don't know why
    Gotta keep on smiling
    Gotta keep on laughing
    When I want to cry
    I do believe it

    And here I'm all alone
    Sitting by the telephone
    And I wonder why, I wonder why, I wonder why
    I keep laughing when I wanna cry
    Ooh, sing it
