"Mourning Morning" as written by Jack Christopher Allsopp and Jules Porreca....
Morning light don't scratch my eyes
Just let me wash up on a shore
I used to have the strangest dreams
But they don't come here anymore

My duvet's laid out like an atlas
With stains to mark the borderlines
Indentations in my pillow
I hope won't fade with time

Smoke the roach left in the ashtray
On which I choked the night before
Stubbed my toes on dirty clothes
Like mountain ranges on a floor

I pick my way through crusty dishes
And their greasy chemistry
I washed two cups and then remember
That you've left already

I let you go so reluctantly
And I can still hear your lazy symphony
And just when I think I found my calling
It's another mourning morning

They say the devil's in the detail
I'm gonna blind my eyes instead
I put my memories in a landscape
Where only reckless angels tread

And watch the fingerprints you left
Like a secret code upon my skin
And I remember when you told me
A gilded crown won't make a king

I really want you to stay
But I know you have to go
I really want you to stay
But sometimes it doesn't show

I really want you to stay
But I know you have to go
I really want you to stay
Let the conversation flow

I really want you to stay
But I know you have to go
I really want you to stay
But sometimes it doesn't show

I really want you to stay
But I know you have to go
Have to go again

I let you go so reluctantly
And I can still hear your lazy symphony
And just when I think I found my calling
It's another mourning morning

I really want you to stay
But I know you have to go
I really want you to stay
But I know you have to go

I really want you to stay
But I know you have to go
I really want you to stay
But I know you have to go

I really want you to stay
But I know you have to go
I really want you to stay
But I know you have to go

I really want you to stay
But I know you have to go
Have to go again
