"Sunday" as written by Dolores Mary O'riordan and Noel Hogan....
Heavy night it was a heavy night
Feels like we come back from the dead
Heavy night it was a heavy night
I cannot remember what I said to anyone

If we get up now we can catch the afternoon
Watch the under 15s playing football in the park
Let's sit in St. Leonard's in this alcoholic day
We're doing the best with what we've got

I love you in the morning ,
When you're still hung-over
I love you in the morning,
When you're still strung out,
I love you in the morning,

I would cry all week and so do you
We discern to let us sleep
Let all the droughts creep in to reach for this life
There might be white to smatter you in
That have the right answers
That we British forget
About those north eastern gaps

I love you in the morning ,
When you're still hung-over
I love you in the morning,
When you're still strung out,
I love you in the morning,

With you I am cut from a pearl in your oyster
Head on my chest a silent smile, a private kind of happiness
You see giant proclamations are all very well
But our love is louder than words

    MemoryI agree with everybody before me, it's a simple song about love.

    Sunday, the day itself, has such a distinct feeling to me. It's a lazy day, you wake up and the memories and drinks and feelings and city and lights and people of the night before hit you. The fun is behind you and it's pretty lonely."It was a heavy night."

    My favorite Sundays have been dragging myself out of bed for late lunch with friends, tons of greasy food and recounting stories from the night before, laughing, all of us in sweatpants and no makeup. Then doing something lazy, taking the day slow, like in the song, going to the park or just hanging out.

    But I heard this song on a Sunday once, and it hit me, how nice it would be to wake up on a Sunday next to someone you love, spending the whole slow lazy day with them, a simple small part of love we overlook. People, myself included, look back on love and remember anniversaries and valentines day but not the Sundays. Just waking up with someone, looking in their eyes, "head on my chest, a silent smile, a private kind of happiness " even if you aren't perfect, even if there are more beautiful girls, just doing your best together.

    Whoever wrote this song knows about love, past the stages of lust, but at the point when you just smile hearing their name, when you're totally comfortable with them, and open to them in the most intimate Sunday morning way..

    General Commentits about love isnt it?? when its all stripped down and pure and private, and it feels like there's just you two people in the whole wide world... the line "I'll love you in the morning" is so heart-wrenching, and i cant fully explain. Its NOT like "I'll only love you in the morning" it's like "I'll still love you in the morning"... and if a love lasts one night, it lasts a whole lifetime.

    General CommentThis song is probably my favourite Bloc Party Song. It fully describes my weekend life at the moment. Going out on a Saturday night, getting absolutely wasted and then describing the next day. It's how I feel every weekend and i always play it as soon as i wake up. Awesome song!

    General CommentFrom their website...

    Heavy night, it was a heavy night
    Feels like we've just, come back from the dead
    Heavy night, it was a heavy night
    I cannot remember what I said to anyone
    If we get up now, we can catch the afternoon
    Watch the under15's playing football in the park
    Let’s sit in St Leonard's on this alcoholic day
    We're doing the best, with what we've got

    I love you in the morning
    When you're still hung over
    I love you in the morning
    When you're still strung out

    I work hard all week and so do you
    We deserve to let off some steam
    Less orthodox creeping,
    We need to rage through all of this life
    There might be ones who are smarter than you
    That have the right answers that wear better shoes
    Forget about those melting ice caps
    We're doing the best, with what we've got

    I love you in the morning
    When you're still hung over
    I love you in the morning
    When you're still strung out

    When I'm with you, I am calm
    A pearl in your oyster
    Head on my chest a silent smile
    A private kind of happiness
    You see giant proclamations
    Are all very well
    But our love is louder than words

    I love you in the morning

    General Commentis it "i love you" or "i'll love you" i'm sure i'm hearing i'll, which would fit a tad better, but either is good.
    it's a good old bloc party ballard-style song. pretty (:

    General CommentSorry, but I think you misheard some of the lines. ;) I could tell it's "forget about those melting icecaps" and "that have the right answers, that wear better shoes".

    General Commentnot one of their best songs... a bit bloc-party-by-numbers. but I do like the premise of the lyrics. it's just... nice. and sometimes you just need to hear a nice song.

    General CommentSomeone's a Terry Pratchett fan. Or it's just a massive coincedence.
