[Verse:]
The first piece of morning finds its way into my bed
And I ain’t quite ready yet to wake
I hear somebody breathin' so I know that I ain’t dead
Guess He ain’t ready yet my soul to take

[Verse:]
I sit myself up and let my feet fall on the floor
The little hand ain’t made it halfway 'round
I’m too tired to be inspired, I’ve been here before
But I’m glad to see that you’re still sleeping sound

[Chorus:]
I want the last thing I see to be your face
Kissing you the last thing that I do
And when I die, let me die in your embrace
But until then I want to love my life away with you

[Verse:]
The colors through my window all are filled with afternoon
Prayers I hear are blending with the din
It starts to make a melody but I can’t place the tune
You must be wond'rin' where my mind has been

[Chorus:]
I want the last thing I see to be your face
Kissing you the last thing that I do
And when I die let me die in your embrace
But until then I want to love my life away with you

[Bridge:]
I can’t borrow another tomorrow
I can’t even guarantee today
But God willing, we’ll still be fulfilling
Ev'ry dream we dreamed along the way

[Verse:]
The end of my day is circling ‘bove me like a bird
That ain’t quite ready yet to land
If I wake before I die I still won’t be deterred
I’ll think about the day you took my hand

[Chorus:]
I want the last thing I see to be your face
Kissing you the last thing that I do
And when I die let me die in your embrace
But until then I want to love my life away with you
