"Good Morning" as written by John Stephens, Shannon Sanders, Drew Ramsey and Britten Newbill....
Good morning silence
Good morning to myself
Good morning to the pain
In the center of my chest

It's crazy how much I miss
A simple good morning kiss

Good morning independence
Or is it loneliness?
I know I said I wanted this
But I have regrets

I pray for God's will will to be done
The very next day you were gone

And food morning to the harsh
Realities of life
And good mourning to the fact
We're not husband and wife

We made a promise to stay
Destiny got in the way

Good morning

Good morning acceptance
Good morning inner strength
I'm loving every moment
Even the strain

It's crazy how much I miss
A simple good morning kiss
It's crazy how much I've missed
Now it's time for me to live

Good morning

Good morning optimism
Good morning to my faith
Good morning to the beginning
Of a brand new day

I know that God's will will be done
So I lay down my pain and I'm moving on

I know that God's will will be done
It's a good morning after all

    General Commenthow has no one commented on this? one of the most beautiful songs i've ever heard!! i think its about her waking up to everything after her partner leaves. she is saying good morning because it is a new beginning and because she is only starting to feel these emotions now. i love the bit where she says:

    Good morning independence... or is it loneliness?

    General CommentIts meant to be spelled "good mourning" however i agree with the interpretation on this board. She was inspired to make this album from her difficult times during her breakup and how she found herself agen. This songs a perfect example of describing the pain she felt.

    General Commenti speaks out whatever pain i feel right now, i miss him so much, couldn't really put it in words, he left me, yeah, especially when she said "good morning to the fact we're not husband and wife" that really hits home for me

    My InterpretationGood mourning is one of the most beautifully written songs. So sad, yet so strong. Ready for love I believe is an amazing song. Feeling so ready when she wrote that son, but now having regrets. Praying for God will and having to accept it. Good mourning to the fact we are not husband and wife. We made a promise to stay, but destiny got in the way. She is going through different stages in this song, silence/pain, loneliness/regret, life/the fact she and he r not husband and wife, a kind of acceptance/strength, and last hope/faith. It's crazy how much I miss that simple good morning kiss. The simple things mean a lot don't they?

    I pray for God's will to be done, the very next day you are gone.

    Lyric CorrectionThe name of the song is Good "Mourning" I think that is an important factor and makes the song that much deeper. The "morning" up to "but destiny got in the way is spelled "mourning." The change in the morning shows the growth in the song and it's protagonist. They start accepting the changes in their life and everything is going to be oksy in the end.
