"Tomorrow Morning" as written by and Jack Johnson....
Well that's alright
If that's alright
Two thousand miles were still
That's alright
And that's alright
If that's alright
I'll see you in the morning
If that's alright

And what would you do if I wrote you a song
Would you give me some lovin' when I get home
Or would you be mad at me if I had a hard time
Gettin' a hold of you
I try all the time

And I'll bet that
You don't know anybody that could be so bad
But if you did you'd be wonderin' where I'm at
Well I'll be home when tomorrow morning comes

What would you do if I sang you this song
The connection is bad but that's only the phone
'Cause when my words kiss your ear
I'll be right there
The message is long
'Cause baby this is your song

I'll bet that
You don't know anybody that could be so bad
But if you did you'd be wonderin' where I'm at
Well I'll be home when tomorrow morning

I'll bet that
You don't know anybody that could be so bad
But if you did you'd be wonderin' where I'm at
Well I'll be home when tomorrow morning

And that's alright
'Cause I'll be home when tomorrow morning
And that's alright
'Cause I'll be home when tomorrow morning comes

    General CommentA few people have commented on this song under the wrong name of "Haleiwa," but I must say this is a favorite from "On and On." The first verse "what would you do..." reminds be of the Beatles "With A Little Help From My Friends." Does anyone else hear that?

    General CommentThis Song Is a portrayal of love. JJ Really loves his wife, and you can see how much this is true based on this song. Even though he is away from her he wants her to know how much he loves her.
    Love The Song.

    General CommentThe song was actually written by jack for his wife while he was away surfing for the september sessions movie iirc. He couldn't get a hold of her and he left a message on the answering machine with the "what would you do ..."

    His wife loved the message (which girl wouldn't ?) and she asked him to make a complete song out of it .. and he did, and it rocks :)

    -the part that is wrong is:

    well that's alright
    yes that's alright
    2,000 miles well
    still that's alright

    and that's alright
    if that's alright
    I'll see you in the morning
    if that's alright

    General CommentWell I guess I'm extremely cynical. Am I the only one that thought someone was cheating on someone in this song? Either way it makes the lyrics more fun for me this way.

    "Two thousand miles but that's all right
    I'll see you in the morning if that's all right"

    He's far away, so she has opportunity. He is checking to make sure he can come in the morning. Either he feels guilty, or he doesn't want her to be with someone else in the morning.


    "What would you do if I wrote you a song
    would you give me some loving when I get home
    or would you be mad at me if I had a hard time
    getting a hold of you, I try all the time"

    He's trying to get some sex, but he doesn't know if she's mad at him or if he should be at her, since she's never home to answer the phone.


    "I'll bet that you don't know anybody that could be so bad
    but if you did you'd be wondering where I'm at
    I'll be home when tomorrow morning comes"

    There it is. Why is he so bad? Or is she bad? And if either of them are "so bad" then someone is cheating. And if you're cheating, you might not be coming back.

    "What would you do if I sang you this song
    the connection is bad but that's only the phone
    when my words kiss your ear, I'll be right there
    the message is long because baby this is your song"

    An obviously smooth rock 'n roller make up line.

    Like I said, it's way more fun this way. Sure it's not as innocent and sweet, but I prefer the snarky interpretation. Anyone with me on this?

    General CommentI love this song, especially the intro. I've always had this story in my head of the wife being half asleep at the beginning, which is why the voice sounds fuzzy and far away. The husband's like, "I'm going two thousand miles away, is that okay?" and she's like, "sure whatever." and goes back to sleep. Then he goes far away and parties with a bunch of his friends, and she's pretty mad, but of course all is forgiven because they are so in love... Idk, that's just the story that's always been in my head!
