and 6 am in morningside
the first car rushes by
we walk down to the garden
and the sunlight fills your eyes

and stops me for a moment
'till i turn and look the other way
the windows are all open
and it's saturday

and where i ride the evening turns to blue
and fades away
a silence hangs enchanted
through sunset and the lane

the air is charged with sunlight
and your name is ringing through my mind
cathedral bells and sunlit is the night

    General CommentThis is one of my absolute favorite Clientele songs because it's so incredibly evocative of the perfect place and time.

    This song paints a perfect picture of a couple strolling through an older, rural part of town in the very early morning. When the sunlight fills the woman's eyes, it stops him for a moment because he realizes that they've been walking around for hours. They've had the perfect night strolling in the cool summer evening, talking and growing close.

    At the end of the song, he's driving home, likely to sleep. The mix of dawn and cool air is comfortably overwhelming as this night's memories run through his head.
