"July Morning" as written by Ken Hensley and David Garrick....
There I was on a July morning
Looking for love
With the strength
Of a new day dawning
And the beautiful sun

At the sound
Of the first bird singing
I was leaving for home
With the storm
And the night behind me
And a road of my own

With the day came the resolution
I'll be looking for you
La la la la, la la la la, la la la

I was looking for love
In the strangest places
Wasn't a stone
That I left unturned
Must have tried more
Than a thousand faces
But not one was aware
Of the fire that burned

In my heart, in my mind, in my soul
La la la la, la la la la, la la la

In my heart, in my mind, in my soul
La la la la, la la la la
La la la la, la la la la, la la la la
La la la la, (la la la la)

There I was on a July morning
I was looking for love
With the strength
Of a new day dawning
And the beautiful sun

And at the sound
Of the first bird singing
I was leaving for home
With the storm
And the night behind me
Yeah, and a road of my own

With the day came the resolution
I'll be looking for you
La la la la, la la la la, la la la

    General Commentlmao nobody commented this song? Well- this is a great song. It's like, 10 minutes long and I just forget myself in it and then wake up again in the middle of the guitar solo and then I think,
    THIS IS AN AWESOME SONG!

    Yes. But I think this song is about loneliness, and looking for love and not finding it, and just going through life alone.
    Kinda says itself. Unless there's a hidden meaning behind all that shit that I can't see? =)

    General CommentI don't really think it's about loneliness. Yeah, maybe it discusses this matter, but it isn't the most important topic in it. I think there is a big dose of hope into this song - "With the strength of a new day dawning, and the beautiful sun" - "With the storm and the night behind me". It's kind of like a new begining. I feel it as a quite optimistic song.

    General CommentSounds like the person in the song is searching for love, but keeps getting into messes and getting hurt. They keep leaving each bad relationship (With the storm and the night behind me) and searching, with even more hope that maybe the next time it'll be the right person.

    Excellent song, too. I love how the beginning just kicks straight into high-gear, then it quiets down as the lyrics start, then the last part...wow. Great song!

    General CommentLike Ludey said, the end of this song could be his torment. His suffering while he was searching

    General Commentlove this song play it loud!


    But not one was aware
    Of the fire that burned
    this line explains it all. he says he's "looking for love". the storm represents chaos, unsteadyness. he wants that burning desire for love but can't find the right one. well he says
    "In my heart, in my mind, in my soul" --- is he also searching there? within himself?
    now in the first verse he says "i was leaving for home with the storm behind me." maybe he search was chaotic, stormy. he needed something. what he found was in the storm. and now he leaves for home.
    "with the day came the resolution, i'll be looking for you." he realizes haveing a woman is like a home. he's in his storm of a search relizes what he needs. a new day begins, now he knows and journeys on his "road of his own" meaning he's still alone but travels in the road of life to find love. but with the resolution that love is his bright and new day that gives him happiness to try to find. he's not chaotic anymore.

    General CommentHe realizes how any girl he'd been with cannot be compared with the one he used to be with in his early life.
    He obviously left her. Now, he's sorry.
    She still loves him.
