I am tired, and let's face it,
We have not much to talk about.
This isn't what I hoped for but,
I guess you can stay over.

Go ahead, you can sleep in my bed,
But be gone in the morning.
Be gone in the morning.
'Cause I am desperate for something affectionate.
But please be gone in the morning.

Guess I shouldn't expect
Anything truly intimate,
When you can't even make me laugh.
So what do you want me to say?
I guess you can stay.
I guess you can stay..

Go ahead, you can sleep in my bed,
But be gone in the morning.
Be gone in the morning.
'Cause I am desperate for something affectionate.
But please be gone in the morning.

I remember the mornings
When the sunrise wasn't half as beautiful
As the body laying next to me
Who would sit at the edge of the bed
Light a cigarette and look into me
Say my eyes were like staring at
The changes of the sea.

So I guess go ahead,
You can sleep in my bed
But if you're not her
Please be gone in the morning.
'Cause I am desperate for something affectionate.
But if you're not her, please be gone in the morning.
If you're not her, please be gone.

If you're not her, please be gone in the morning...

    General CommentPretty self-explanatory, I guess.

    She had this amazing girlfriend. Then they broke up. Now she misses her like crazy. Every little thing about her, and the way they were...

    So in order to heal, she tries to have a lot of noncommittal sex. Meaningless one night encounters with people who don't mean anything to her whatsoever. ("But if you're not HER, please be gone in the morning..")

    It only makes her feel emptier inside, and the song reflects that. Especially if you listen to it. There's some sort of beautiful vulnerability which makes you want to cry your eyes out. Hard to describe.

    She is longing for the past. Even though she knows it's gone forever.
