I'm in love with the world
through the eyes of a girl
who's still around the morning after.

We broke up a month ago
and I grew up, I didn't know
I'd be around the morning after.

It's always been, wait and see;
a happy day and then you pay
and feel like shit the morning after,

but now I feel changed around
and instead of falling down,
I'm standing up the morning after.

Situations get fucked up
and turned around sooner or later
and I could be another fool
or an exception to the rule.
You tell me the morning after.

Crooked spin can't come to rest.
I'm damaged bad at best.
She'll decide what she wants.
I'll probably be the last to know.
No one says until it shows
and you see how it is:
they want you or they don't.
Say yes.

I'm in love with the world
through the eyes of a girl
who's still around the morning after...

    General Commenti know this doesn't have to do with the meaning, but Elliott Smith is great and Ben did a really good cover. I'm sure Elliott would be proud.
