"In The Morning" as written by and Adam Stuart Levy....
I can't stop myself from calling
calling out your name
I can't stop myself from falling
falling back again
in the morning,
Baby, in the afternoon

Dark like the shady corner
inside a violin
Hot like to burn my lips
I know I can't win
in the morning
Baby, in the afternoon

I try to quit you but I'm too weak
waking up without you
I can hardly speak at all

My girlfriend tried to help me
get you off my mind
She tried a little tea and sympathy
to help me to unwind
in the morning
Baby, in the afternoon

Funny how my favorite shirt
smells more like you than me
Bitter traces left behind
in stains no one can see
in the morning
Baby, in the afternoon

You're gonna put me in an early grave
I know I'm your slave whenever you call

I can't stop myself from calling
calling out your name
I can't stop myself from falling
falling back again
falling back again
in the morning
Baby, in the afternoon

    General CommentOn the most basic level, this song is about the singer's addiction... most people would assume to a lover. But from the first time I popped this into my stereo, I thought there might be a joke/double entendre going on here.
    My theory is that the song is about.... coffee.
    Call me crazy, but look at the lyrics: "Dark like the shady corners," "hot like to burn my lips," "bitter traces," "stains."
    It's all very clever, speaking about it in terms we usually associate with a relationship. But if you read the words, they can all be related to someone trying to quit coffee.
    "...get you off my mind, tried a little TEA and sympathy to help me to unwind," "Wakin' up without you I can hardly speak," etc. etc.
    Any other thoughts? -Annie

    General CommentI honestly can't believe nobody's commented on this song yet. I love it to death ^.^ I suppose it's because it reminds me of my ex. We had an on again, off again sort of relationship, but it was always so passionate... "Hot like to burn my lips"... That describes it pretty well. It was kind of a tryst that probably should have ended not even a week in, but we both got caught up... First love, that's what this song reminds me of, the kind that's so strong and powerful that you can't help but get caught up in the whirlwind of passion, the raw heat of it all. The kind that almost always leaves somebody burnt and hurting...

    General CommentAhahah VERY good point annie. I like it. I suppose it can either be directly ABOUT coffee or it could just be a metaphor for a relationship or the other way around.
