The house is still at midnight
By one, we'll be a wreck
Alcohol and bandages
Will soon follow this mess

Sleeping's overrated
We lie awake and cry
If this is love
Then kill me now
And save me from my life

The house is dead by morning
As good as new again
The morning-after funeral
Is coming to its end

Smiles aren't too tempting
And hope's as good as lies
Memories are pain
That lost their meaning over time

Just close your eyes
Everything will be okay
Just close your eyes
Everything will be okay
(Just let us sleep)
Just close your eyes
Everything will be okay
(Remembering us for the best)
Just close your eyes
Just close your eyes (x2)

    General Commenti think that the "morning after funeral" is the morning after pill his girlfriend takes the morning after because they had sex the previous night

    the song expresses Jamison's feelings about this

    he tells his girlfriend to "Just close your eyes", because, "everything will be okay," and take the pill

    he tells himself that everything will be ok, that he needs to just go ahead and follow through

    he tells the possible baby that everything will be ok
    to just close its eyes and fade away

    thats why "alcohol and bandages will soon follow this mess"

    because he needs to heal after the mess he made

    General CommentI think its about how life is such a mess and its crazy but you try to do anything to fix it. Hence the Alcohol or bandages.
    And you try to tell yourself that ok just breathe

    General Commenti think this song is just about knowing what damage you've done and remembering why it happened in the first place, then letting go if it.

    every song that jamison has ever wrote is the anthem to my life.

    General Commentfor some reason i've always had in my head that someone close to them died, they went to their funeral, then to escape the pain went home and got wasted. this song is about waking up the next morning. "morning after funeral" idk..not very meaningful, that's just the first impression i got from the song.
    lovely song, mesmerizing. love jamison parker.
