"Gone In The Morning" as written by Newton Faulkner and Toby William Battenberg Faulkner....
Off to the land where no one's been before.
I'm gonna take my shoes of at the door.
I'm gonna go with dreams that will explode. (oowooh)
When the alarm goes off, I just won't know.

Wont you come with me?
Wont you, come with me
Wont you, before they're

Gone in the morning, I wanna know why
Their gone in the morning, I feel alone when they're
Gone in the morning, I wanna know why they're
Gone in the morning and I

I don't mind, what's in store
Make it in my own sweet time
When I go,

I'm gonna master all kinds of kung-fu
I'm gonna live inside a tiny zoo.
I'm gonna grow myself a giant Afro (incredible fro)
When the alarm goes off I just won't know.

Wont you come with me?
Wont you, come with me
Wont you, before they're

Gone in the morning, I wanna know why
They're gone in the morning, I feel alone when they're
Gone in the morning, I wanna know why they're
Gone in the morning and I

I don't mind, what's in store
Make it in my own sweet time
When I go, oh I don't want to go

Wont you come with me?
Wont you, come with me
Wont you, before they're

Gone in the morning, I wanna know why
They're gone in the morning, I feel alone when they're
Gone in the morning, I wanna know why they're
Gone in the morning and I

Gone in the morning, I wanna know why
They're gone in the morning, I feel alone when they're
Gone in the morning, I wanna know why they're
Gone in the morning and I

    General CommentI agree that it's about dreams.. but maybe it's about the fact that he wishes that his dreams were not dreams, but that they were truth.

    General CommentI can imagine this song being used for a cereal advert. I can just picture a family sitting round the breakfast table, smiling, eating cheerios together.

    My InterpretationI think this song is about feelings basically. He doesn't want his feelings to go away for this particular person, he wants to go 'where dreams like rivers flow' and he is gonna 'take off his shoes' in this beautiful dreamland. Then he comes back to a world where alarm needs needs to go off for warnings. When he will realise that the alarm has gone off, that his feelings or her feelings are dwindling and the excitement is going away from their relationship, he 'just won't go'. Now he is asking 'won't you come with me' and won't you have fun before our relationship or friendship ends in other words 'before they are gone in the morning'. He wants to understand the nature of love why 'they are gone in the morning', why they are transitory. He feels a bit paranoid and alien, that is why he will 'learn all kinds of kung foo' so that he can ward off the forces which will try to take away his feelings, he is even 'gonna to live inside a tiny zoo' to protect his feelings. He understands the futility of it all. So he asks again "Won't you come with me' now while it lasts, before a day when I wake up in the morning and all my feelings for you are gone or your feeling for me are gone for that matter. He kinda accepts the fact now and says 'I don't mind what's in store' for us, I don't mind if we'll be together or not in the future. Let's just make this time, a 'sweet time'. If I am alone sometime in the future, it's okay. In my opinion these lyrics comes of out a thorough awareness of the ultimate fate of his relationship and relationships in general, the fickle nature of our hearts and a deep emotional attachment to the person at that moment in time.
