about

Every family has skeletons in the cupboard. 'Annie' was a distant relation, in service, who 'got into trouble' at a time when women were still being locked away for having children out of wedlock.

lyrics

Annie in the morning rain
With her future planned
Did he understand?
Annie in the morning rain
Suitcase in her hand
'Til the morning passes and the sun breaks through
The waiting's over and the future's new
For Annie in the morning rain
Suitcase in her hand

Annie in the morning rain
With her freedom won
Wonders what she's done
Annie in the morning rain
Wonders will he come
For the note she left them was a last goodbye
They won't believe her but she hopes they'll try
Annie in the morning rain
Wonders will he come

Picking up his coat and keys
Still he can't decide
Should he go to work,
Or drive with her by his side?

Annie in the morning rain
With her pages turned
Wonders what she's learned
Annie in the morning rain
With her bridges burned
In her heart she hears him as he says ‘I do’
With her belly swollen and her baby due
Annie in the morning rain
With her bridges burned
Annie in the morning rain
With her pages turned
