"Morning Yearning" as written by and Ben Harper....
A finger's touch upon my lips
It's a morning yearning
Pull the curtains shut, try to keep it dark
But the sun is burning

The world awakens on the run
And will soon be earning
With hopes of better days to come
It's a morning yearning

Another day, another chance to get it right
Must I still be learning
Baby crying kept us up all night
With her morning yearning

Like a summer rose, I'm a victim of the fall
But am soon returning
Your love's the warmest place the sun ever shines
My morning yearning

    General Commentit is such a sweet song... In a peculiar way. Anyway: I love it. Especially 'Like a summer rose, i'm a victim of the fall But am soon returning'

    My morning yearns quite often.

    General CommentIt reminds me of life, reflecting on aspects of life "baby crying kept us up all night" simple but true incident that happens in the day of the life.. its beautiful.. I dont know what I mean, but easily one of the most beautiful songs by Ben... and theres lots of them.

    General CommentI think it's about wanting (yearning) to be something better, or someone in general. wanting to do more, wanting to be more, wanting to mean more.

    After having a dream of being something special or just one hell of a happy dream in general, you wake up to the same old sh*t. working 9 to 5, eating, sleeping, working, eating, sleeping. etc (live to eat, not eat to live and all that stuff).

    In short, this song (to me) is about waking up depressed with how standard your life is.

    General CommentI believe that the song is about waking up in the morning and wanting to improve your life. "Another day, another chance to get it right
    Must i still be learning." persistantly trying to get better.

    General Commentthis song i believe, is an extremely powerful song.


    I believe that it is about you yearn to wake up in the morning and everything to get better.
    our world in general is about as screwed as it can get and i believe that is what he is singing about.

    ben harper has definately regained himself.
