Every morning there's a halo hangin
From the corner of my girlfriend's four post bed
I know it's not mine but I'll see if I can use it for
The weekend or a one-night stand

Couldn't understand
How to work it out
Once again as predicted left my broken heart open
And you ripped it out

Something's got me reeling
Stopped me from believing
Turn me around again
Said that we can do it
Why'know I want to do it again

(Sugar Ray say)
Oh
(Every Morning)
Oh
(Every Morning when I wake up)
(Shut the door baby, don't say a word)
Oh
(She always rights wrongs, she always rights)
(Shut the door baby, Shut the door baby)

Every Morning there's a heartache hanging
From the corner of my girlfriend's four-post bed
I know it's not mine and I know she thinks she loves me
But I never can believe what she said

Something so deceiving
When you stop believing
Turn me around again
Said we couldn't do it
Ya know I want to do it again

Oh
(Every Morning)
Oh
(Every Morning when I wake up)
(Shut the door baby, don't say a word)
Oh
(Every Morning)
Oh
(Every Morning when I wake up)
(Shut the door baby, shut the door baby)

She always rights the wrongs
For me
Baby
She always rights the wrongs
For me

Every Morning there's a halo hanging
From the corner of my girlfriends four-post bed
I know it's not mine but I'll see if I can use it for
The weekend or a one-night stand
(Shut the door baby, don't say a word)

Every Morning
Every Morning when I wake up
(Shut the door baby, shut the door Ray)
Every Morning
Every Morning (Turn me around again)
(Shut the door baby, don't say a word)
Every Morning
Every Morning

    General CommentWhenever he says "Shut the door" I believe it's a double entendre meant to sound like "Je t'adore," or I love you in French.

    Also, the condom idea makes sense, but I always thought of it as if the girlfriend is an angel when she chooses to be, but she takes off her halo in bed (the general consensus is cheating). When he says he wants to borrow the halo, he wants to use it to make him look like an angel, almost like making puppy-dog eyes, to get her to forgive him for cheating on her. That's my take on it.

    General Commentdefinitely reminds me of good times and summertime!

    i never thought of the halo as a condom. i always thought of it as the boyfriend admitting that the girl is so much better, nicer, and more angelic (the halo) than him. Basically, he's using her for sex and he sorta feels bad about it, but they both know it and don't care. I didn't think about it as referring to cheating at all.

    General CommentThe song is about his girl cheating on him. The "halo" is a reference to her cheating being validated somehow and how he wants to have that privilege. It's also talking about how everytime he goes to leave her, she sweet talks him back and he falls for it constantly.

    General Commenthhmm if the halo was a condom that he used.... why would he say "i know its not mine but ill SEE IF I CAN USE IT".... i dont think its been used yet. im guessing hes SUSPECTING shes cheating so he wants to get back... but whenever he brings up the issue... she just "always rights the wrongs" as in.. tells him everything is fine
    AWESOME song

    General Commentthis song is about a girl cheating on a bloke and sweet talking him into staying with her whenever he gets proof...also the last 'halo' in this song isnt actually halo...it says 'every morning there's a heatache hanging from my girlfriend's four post bed' saying that everytime he sees the halo it breaks his heart just a little bit more every morning when he walks in

    General CommentI don't believe the "halo" is a condom at all. The halo is strictly symbolic, there is nothing really hanging from her four post bed (just as later in the song there is no heartache hanging there).

    The halo hanging there refers to her being naughty, like an Angel has fallen from grace (her escapades in the bed). He understands what the halo symbolizes, so he thinks maybe he can use it to do to someone else what it has done to him.

    "something's got me reeling, stopped me from believing" He's stopped believing in her and what the halo represents. "Turn me around again" He wants her to convince him, to make him believe, to stop his head from spinning, because he wants to do it again.

    "She always right the wrongs for me" She always convinces him to believe, even if it is only while they are sleeping together.

    "Shut the door baby, don't say a word" He wants to continue with his fantasy that she loves and wants him. He wants to believe in her at least for the time being, and let her right the wrongs (convince him and prove it sexually), even though when they aren't doing it, his mind reels and he can't believe her.

    "Every Morning there's a heartache hanging from the corner of my girlfriend's four-post bed. I know it's not mine and I know she thinks she loves me but I never can believe what she said." As the halo was hers, the heartache is hers, too. She thinks she loves him so she feels heartache for how she's treated him. That's why she says they can't do it again.

    "Something so deceiving, when you STOP believing" (Big mistake in the lyrics posted on this site, it says "when you START believing.) This refers back to the earlier lyrics when he said "something's got me reeling, stopped me from believing." Here, he realizes how deceiving it is to pretend like he believes her, when he really doesn't anymore. He's deceiving himself and her.

    "Turn me around again. Said we couldn't do it, You know I wanna do it again" He wants her to take it all away, to turn back the clock, to turn him around again emotionally. And even though he recognizes she said they can't do it anymore, he still wants to. His passion for her is overriding his logic.

    That's my take on it.

    General CommentWell here's my idea:


    Every morning there's a halo hanging from the corner of my girlfriend's four post bed
    I know it's not mine but I'll see if I can use it for the weekend or a one night stand

    (The halo is her pretending to be innocent despite having cheated on him the night before, and he's considering cheating on her in her very own bed just to get revenge).

    Couldn't understand how to work it out
    Once again as predicted left my broken heart open
    And you ripped it out
    Something's got me reeling
    Stop me from believing
    Turn me around again
    Said that we can do it
    You know I want to do it again

    (He doesn't really know how to work it out so he just leaves himself open to get hurt. Something's got him reeling is his GF continuing to somehow bring him back to him even through all the hurt she causes him. Do it could mean get back together work things out or just last, but maybe he's just referring to having sex.)

    Every morning
    Every morning when I wake up
    Shut the door baby, don't say a word
    She always rights the wrong
    She always rights
    She always rights
    Shut the door baby
    Shut the door baby

    (Again every morning meaning just all the time. She's writing how he's doing something that's wrong yet she's controlling it, and the shut the door baby is the guy she's cheating on him with.)

    Every morning there's a heartache hanging from the corner of my girlfriend's four post bed
    I know it's not mine and I know she thinks she loves me but I can never believe what she's said

    (The heartache could be just she's always going with other guys or she feels guilty about cheating on him. She thinks she loves him, but he knows she doesn't and can't believe it 'cause she can't love one guy.)

    Something so deceiving when you start believing
    Turn me around again
    Said we couldn't do it
    You know I want to do it again

    (It's deceiving that he's convinced into believing her and the more he does, the more deceiving it gets. Again the do it part).


    Every morning
    Every morning when I wake up
    Shut the door baby, don't say a word
    Every morning
    Every morning
    every morning shut the door baby
    Shut the door baby

    (Same thing, always happens, another guy who she's cheating on him with is talking).

    She always rights the wrong
    For me, baby
    She always rights the wrong
    For me

    (She puts thoughts into his mind that rationalizes staying with him yet it's wrong).

    Every morning there's a halo hanging from the corner of my girlfriend's four post bed
    I know it's not mine but I'll see if I can use it for the weekend or a one night stand

    (Same as before).

    Shut the door baby don't say a word
    Every morning
    Every morning when I wake up
    Shut the door baby, don't say a word
    Every morning

    (Again same as before).

    (repeat to fade)

    My InterpretationI watched the video that gbxdl recommended, and although it is making fun of the song... it makes sense. His interpretation, at least. He's saying that there's a halo hanging on the girl's bed every morning because she DIDN'T cheat on her boyfriend, but the guy wants to borrow the halo (which is not his because he is not so angelic) to get away with cheating on her. Basically a song about being a jerk. I think this makes just as much sense as the other interpretation that the girl is cheating... either way, great song!

    General CommentI think it means he wants to have sex with her, and she let him go that far once, but now she doesn't want to do it anymore. Kind of understand? Like
    Every morning there's a halo hanging from the corner of my girlfriend's four post bed - every morning when he wakes up and she's got her second virginity again, the halo being her innocence and goodness.
    I know it's not mine but I'll see if I can use it for the weekend or a one night stand-He wants to have it, but it's hers and he cant have sex with her if she doesnt want to.

    Couldn't understand how to work it out-how to get her to do it again
    Once again as predicted left my broken heart open
    And you ripped it out-she did it, but doesn't want to.
    Something's got me reeling
    Stop me from believing-he thinks he can get her to do it.
    Turn me around again
    Said that we can do it
    You know I want to do it again- self explanatory

    Shut the door baby, don't say a word- sexual reference
    She always rights the wrong- makes him "be good" and not have sex.
    She always rights
    She always rights
    Shut the door baby
    Shut the door baby

    Every morning there's a heartache hanging from the corner of my girlfriend's four post bed-it hurts her that they did it.
    I know it's not mine and I know she thinks she loves me but I can never believe what she's said-told him they couldnt do it anymore.

    Something so deceiving when you start believing- gets it, and cant have it anymore
    Turn me around again
    Said we couldn't do it-she said no.
    You know I want to do it again
