Liner Notes: 

A little treatment for another beauty of a lyric by @crisp1, whose stuff just sings itself. Thanks, Doug, for letting me take it on for 50/90.

Doug: That was a fast turnaround! This is another nice song, with a sweet, mellow vibe, great vocals, and beautiful guitar work. Thank you, Jeff!

Lyrics: 

Morning In My Heart

Lyrics: Doug Haberman
Music: Jeff Walker

Fog makes the trees of the roadside blend
The road doesn’t seem to have an end
I should be in a black mood
’Cause we’re so far apart
But the sunlight of your love
Makes it morning in my heart
The sunlight of your love
Makes it morning in my heart

Lying alone in a dark motel
It could almost be a prison cell
It’s lonely in the nighttime
And I should feel torn apart
But the sunlight of your love
Makes it morning in my heart
The sunlight of your love
Makes it morning in my heart

I’m counting down the days
Till I turn around
Just a few more days
And I’m homeward bound

(Instrumental)

The sunlight of your love
Makes it morning in my heart
The sunlight of your love
Makes it morning in my heart
The sunlight of your love
The sunlight of your love
The sunlight of your love
Makes it morning
In my heart

Love that guitar! Good vocal too. The cool, acoustic guitar solo really makes me smile. I love a good acoustic solo. Nice job on the harmonies. You have a great sound on this track. I like that hook too. "sunlight of your love" That's a winner!

Jeff, I'll add studio engineer to you list of talents along with songsmith and killer vocalist.

Doug, I like the lyric and wouldn't change a thing.

Another great collab from the two of you, I enjoyed that.

This is a truly beautiful song and a wonderful collaboration. Doug's lyrics are a thing of pure beauty and Jeff's arrangement fits them perfectly. The vocals are tender, sweet and they compliment the guitar very nicely. There are so many wonderful lines in the song but "The sunlight of your love / Makes it morning in my heart" feels magically.

Ah, what a lovely song. Especially moving is that the theme could easily have stayed 'oh woe is me, I'm so lonely without you', but it absolutely doesn't. The result is authentic, charming, and absolutely positive. Beautiful musical and vocal interpretation as well. Tremendous collaboration, you two. Smile

extremely professional, you guys make a great team! The title lines are simply awesome, so much depth in the performance, and it still has a touch of melancholy for me, I like that too. Bravos all round Smile

great sound production and a very nice collab. Sounds like you guys where playing next to each other. Not an easy thing to do..but you did it Jeff. Awesome!

This is beautiful. Love the performance and this is inspiring me to do more vocal harmonies (seeing as that's something I do all the time anyway, but I've been scared to do it with the DAW). The lyrics as always are great.

I like this lyric a lot, and I think Jeff's vocal and music made it shine. Favorite Line: The sunlight of your your love makes it morning in my heart. What a great concept for a song! Nice work, guys!
