"Glory" as written by Damon Emerson Miller, Cameron Giles, Victor Santiago and Kasseem Dean....
I was out stumblin' in the rain
Staring at your lips so red
You said, "Blah, blah, blah"
Got a pillow stuck in my head
How could I argue in the mirror?
She looked at me
Yes I hear her

[Chorus]
When I see the glory
I ain't gotta worry (2x)

Said there's a halo on that truck
Won't you please get it for me
I said, "Of course my little swan
If ever and ever you adore me"
She got mad, she said,
"You're too steep"
Puts on her boxing gloves
And went to sleep

[Chorus]


[Chorus]

    General CommentNot so sure about the rest of it, other than it's beauty, but the second verse is obviously about being "too steep"- the thing that hurts him the most is her going to sleep after he asked if she would ever and ever adore him (ignoring his undying love in trade for sleep- he feels something that might last a long time, she's only interested in sleep and halos). Hence the imagery of the boxing gloves.

    I think the first verse is describing a moment of epiphany- where he looks in a metaphorical mirror and makes himself say what he feels. Not sure about the pillow line..

    Beautifully descriptive...my fave television song.
