"In the Morning, Before Work" as written by and Michael Kinsella....
I eat with these crooked teeth
Tomato soup and grilled cheese
But you already know that because you used to dine with me
Do you remember?

I listen to my same old cds
New Order & Morrissey
But you already know that because you used to ride with me

I thought I'd be singing a different tune by now
But the song about you keeps coming out

I sleep in these dirty sheets
A blanket between my bony knees
But you already know that because you used to crawl in bed with me the morning before work

Put your hands on my back
Kiss the back of my neck

I thought I'd be singing a different tune by now
But the song about you keeps coming out
I'd hoped to be singing to someone new by now
But the songs about you keep coming out

    General CommentGREAT SONG!!!

    I thought I'd be singing a different tune by now
    But the song about you keeps coming out

    General CommentDefinitely my favorite Owen song. I'm not quite sure if this song is about a current or ex girlfriend.

    kind of how i feel about every song i listen to... i always tell myself that i wont listen to the same song that reminds me of the same person... but yeah, that just doesnt happen.

    General Commentsame actions and routine because he just can't escape from the feeling he'll never have again. fuck memories.

    best fucking line in the song:
    "Put your hands on my back
    Kiss the back of my neck"

    I think the last line changes to "But this song's about you."

    Wow, that's so me... It feels weird to think about, but I've like all of my favorite bands for like 4 or 5 years now. Morrissey is definitely one of those bands.

    This song is soooo good.
