"Woke Up This Morning" as written by and Chad/kroeger Kroeger....
I paid my last respects this mornin' on an early grave
Already said goodbye, nothin' left to say
A tiny church a tiny town and not a tear was spent
Not how I wanted it, I'm hating all of this

Well I'm hating, all of this
I'm hating, all of this
All of this, all of this
Now I know why, I hide my love from you some days
No I don't mind keeping this bottled inside me
You came along, and tore this world out around me
Looks like you found me
Now I know why
I felt like shit when I woke up this morning

I've been a loser all my life, I'm not about to change
If you don't like, there's the door, nobody made you stay
There ain't a woman on the planet who can deal with it
Just how I wanted it, I'm hating all of this

Well I'm hating, all of this
I'm hating, all of this
All of this, all of this
Now I know why, I hide my love from you some days
No I don't mind keeping this bottled inside me
You came along, and tore this world out around me
Looks like you found me
Now I know why
I felt like shit when I woke up this morning

All of this, all of this
Now I know why, I hide my love from you some days
No I don't mind keeping this bottled inside me
You came along, and tore this world out around me
Looks like you found me
Now I know why
I felt like shit when I woke up this morning

    General CommentI don't know about anyone else, but does this song remind you of September 11? As some of you hardcore Nickelback fans may know, their CD came out on that day. I bought it that day, brought it home and listened to it nonstop as I did my homework. Out of all the songs on the CD, I think the general mood 'Woke Up This Morning' created, best represented the anguish of that day. For me, it will always symbolize Terrible Tuesday.

    General CommentTo me it means that no matter who comes along that he'll never have any faith in himself. It's really sad.

    General CommentTo me, it's about someone who has always been hiding their feelings and anger and is basically all alone in the world. Always very depressed, but they meet someone who really tries to see who they really are. (Did that make sense?)

    General CommentI don't really seee this song as suicidal, because I can kind of relate to it. It sounds like he lost someone close to him and it hurts him everyday, but no one can understand his pain, not even those closest to him. It's lonely, but sometimes a person can seek solitute, without wanting to kill themselves.

    General CommentI'm a very big Nickelback fan, & this song is probably one of my favorites. I really like this song even though it is kinda depressing when you really sit & listen to it. "I paid my last respects this morning on an early grave/already said goodbye, nothing left to say". To me, that means that he's burying is former self w/ no goodbye's or regrets, but not really knowing where he's going next or how he's gonna be. Maybe it doesn't mean that, but that's how it fits into my life.
