Jill Johnson – Angel Of The Morning (Live)

Jill Johnson verzorgde vorig jaar het voorprogramma van Toby Keith in Paradiso. Helaas was ik zelf te laat in de poptempel om Jill te kunnen zien en ben ik nog steeds benieuwd hoe haar optreden was. Angel Of The Morning is een track van haar album Music Row uit 2007. Het album is compleet gevuld met covers. Zo is Angel Of The Morning oorspronkelijk van Chip Taylor en onder meer vertolkt door Dusty Springfield, ABBA, Olivia Newton-John en Guys ‘n’ Dolls.

Songtekst:

There’ll be no strings to bind your hands
Not if my love can find your heart
And there’s no need to take a stand
For it was I who choose to start
I see no need to take me home
I’m old enough to face the dawn

Just call me angel of the morning, angel
Just touch my cheek before you leave me
Oh my baby
Just call me angel of the morning, angel
Then slowly turn away from me

Maybe the sunlight will be dim
But it won’t matter anyhow
If morning’s echoes say we’ve sinned
Then it was what I wanted now
And if we’re victims of the night
I won’t be blinded by the light

Oh my baby
Just call me angel of the morning, angel
Just touch my cheek before you leave me, baby
Just call me angel of the morning
Then slowly turn away from me

Baby baby baby

Just call me angel of the morning, angel
Just touch my cheek before you leave me
Oh my baby
Just call me angel of the morning, angel
Just touch my cheek before you leave me, baby
Just call me angel of the morning, angel
Just touch my cheek before you leave me
Oh my baby
Just call me angel of the morning, angel
