"Elevenses" as written by and Neil Halstead....
You're drinking on your own
Running for the coast
Running from those ghosts
Running away, girl
With one eye to your past

I see you took the stance
That now you've got the chance
You might as well just dance
Go skies and thrones and wings
And poetry and things

I think you're doing fine
Don't offer me a line
I only want a cup of tea
Go on then, just one
But I really can't stay long

I love the way you shake
But you've lost a little weight
Yeah, you've lost a little weight
See you tomorrow, same time, same place

Mother's little helper is running for her shelter
And no one wants to know
Love dead as doornail, patient unstirred

At least that's what they said
She's gone away for good
She's really made a meal
And blown the record deal
She's blown the record deal
What are we to do?

See you tomorrow, same time, same place
I?ll see you tomorrow, same time, same place
I?ll see you tomorrow, same time, same place
I?ll see you tomorrow, same time, same place

    General CommentIt's a lot more than just drugs. I think it might have something to do with his love going to a mental hospital or rehab of some sort (weither or, she's sent away in a place). He said she's on her own now and he'll see her tomorrow same time and same place. Usually in places like in a hospital or rehab they have scheduled meetings for the people staying there to see their loved ones.
    The song states "She's gone away for good, at least that's what they said." Obviously "they" are the workers that help her in the place she's staying. People usually tend to lose weight because of drugs or sickness: " love the way you shake but you've lost a little weight"
    and such and such and such.
    But that's basically the main summary of the song in my opinion.
