"Tell Me in the Morning" as written by and Matthew Aveiro Nathan Willet....
Speak about Greenly
Now that she's gone
Take my time when I go to bed
And I sleep, Lord
I'm getting over
Rolling over
I said can you just wait
To tell me in the morning?

Slow it down
Slow it down
Lay it low
Save it for the morning

I know that you would like
Like to change me
Make me softer
Tune your voice like a baby
I'm using caution
Bet you wanted
I wish you could wait
To tell me in the morning

Slow it down
Slow it down
Lay it low
Save it for the morning

I shouted questions
Like a fierce fire
You tried to take me by the arm
Into the light
I'm almost over
Rolling over
I said could you just wait
To tell me in the morning?

Slow it down
Slow it down
Lay it low
Save it for the morning

And I'll tell you one more thing
I confess to self deception
Pull the lock and pry it open
They're pretending to be stolen
I am my own thief in the night

Struck up for mnay years
Just to get here
Between the humility
And be my own teacher
I guess it backfired
'cause my motive
Was just to take and
Never kept that way I guess

Slow it down
Slow it down
Lay it low
Save it for the morning

I shouted questions
Like a fierce fire
You tried to take me into your arms and lead me to the light
I'm almost over
Rolling over
I said could you just wait
To tell me in the morning?

Slow it down
Slow it down
Lay it low
Save it for the morning

And I'll tell you one more thing
I confess to self deception
Pull the lock and pry it open
They're pretending to be stolen
And I am my own thief in the night

    General CommentThis song is clearly a break up song. "Tell me in the morning" comes from the common advice "sleep on it" or "it will all be better in the morning". She brings up problems in their relationship that they both recognize (And I'll tell you one more thing; I confess to self deception; Broke the lock and pried it open; Then pretend to be stolen; I am my own thief in the night; Struggled for many years, just to get here; To learn humility, and be my own teacher
    I guess it backfired, 'cause my motive was just to take and never care 'bout what I give) but they just fight & yell at each other and end of breaking up. He still cares about her though and wishes that she could have waited to talk about things in the morning, operating under the belief that things would have turned out differently.

    I think it's the normal signs of regret and the desire to change the outcome of prior events that one feels after a break up.

    General CommentI'm having a hard time figuring this one out. But I do believe he's "shouting questions like a FIST FIGHT", not a "fierce fire".

    General CommentYeah these lyrics are wrong in many other places as well. I'll work on a meaning and maybe some better lyrics when i can figure them out.

    General CommentI think it's "stick around" rather than "speak about" an "turn on your melody" and not "between the humility"

    General Commentstick around Greenly(?)
    now that she's gone
    take my time when I go to bed
    and I sleep long
    I'm getting over
    mullin' over
    I said could you just wait
    to tell me in the morning?

    slow it down
    slow it down
    and lay it low
    save it for the morning

    I know that you would like
    like to change me
    make me softer
    to your voice like a baby
    I'm using caution
    but you want it
    I wish you could wait
    to tell me in the morning

    slow it down
    slow it down
    and lay it low
    save it for the morning

    I shouted questions
    like a fist fight
    you tried to take me by the arms
    lead me to the light
    I'm almost over
    worrying over
    I wish that you could wait
    to tell me in the morning

    slow it down
    slow it down
    lay it low
    save it for the morning

    and I'll tell you one more thing
    I confess to self deception
    and ill pull the lock and pry I'll it open(?)
    they're pretending to be stolen
    I am my own thief in the night

    struggled for many years
    just to get here
    to learn humility
    and be my own teacher
    i guess it backfired
    cause my motive
    was just to take
    and never care 'bout what i give

    slow it down
    slow it down
    lay it low
    save it for the morning

    I shouted questions
    like a fist fight
    you tried to take me by the arms
    lead me to the light
    I'm almost over
    worrying over
    I wish that you could wait
    to tell me in the morning

    slow it down
    slow it down
    and lay it low
    save it for the morning

    and I'll tell you one more thing
    I confess to self deception
    and i broke the lock and i pried it open
    they're pretending to be stolen
    and I am my own thief in the night

    General CommentStick around Greenleaf, now that she's gone
    Take my time when I go to bed, and I sleep long
    I'm getting over, mulling over
    I said "can't you just wait to tell me in the morning?"

    Slow it down
    Slow it down
    Laying low
    Save it for the morning

    I know that you would like, like to change me
    Make me softer to your voice like a baby
    I'm using caution, bet you're warning
    I wish you could wait to tell me in the morning

    Slow it down
    Slow it down
    Lay it low
    Save it for the morning

    I'm shouting questions, like a fist fight
    You tried to take me by the arm into the light
    I'm almost over, warring over
    I said "could you just wait
    to tell me in the morning?"

    Slow it down
    Slow it down
    Lay it low
    Save it for the morning

    And I'll tell you one more thing
    I confess to self deception
    Broke the lock and pried it open
    Then pretend to be stolen
    I am my own thief in the night

    Struggled for many years, just to get here
    To learn humility, and be my own teacher
    I guess it backfired, 'cause my motive was just to take and never care 'bout what I give

    Slow it down
    Slow it down
    Lay it low
    Save it for the morning

    I'm shouting questions
    like a fist fight
    you tried to take me by the arm
    into the light
    I'm almost over
    warring over
    I said "could you just wait
    to tell me in the morning?"

    Slow it down
    Slow it down
    Lay it low
    Save it for the moring

    And I'll tell you one more thing
    I confess to self deception
    Broke the lock and pried it open
    Then pretend to be stolen
    I am my own thief in the night

    General CommentI really think this is a song being sung to God. CWK are a band with Christian roots, and the lyrics really seem to be coming from someone young in their faith. For many of us (myself included), we feel the impact of God's Word (all of it - the scary stuff along with the pleasant stuff) and feel we need time (or sleep) to process it. Sometimes it's laziness, sometimes we just want His patience.

    Fantastic song.
