"24 Hours" as written by George Astasio, Jason Andrew Pebworth, James Morrison, Shingai Elizabeth Mari Shoniwa and Daniel John Montagu Smith....
I'm pulling my hair out
I can't get to sleep
The bed feels so empty
I can still smell you on me

A moment in space, the look on your face when I said "hello"
You stagger to mine, you're still on my mind, why do I feel so low?

It could have been forever but we'll never know
24 hours ago
The night was all we had and then I had to go
24 hours ago
We were lovers
24 hours ago

Where did the summer go?
Everybody's fallen in love
Hey, lover, I'm in limbo
I can still feel your touch

So look in my eyes and tell me you don't want to run away
I know I was bold, but life is too short to catch a heart so cold

It could have been forever but we'll never know
24 hours ago
The night was all we had and then I had to go
24 hours ago
We were lovers
Just 24 hours ago

How do we conceal when life is not what it should be?
Life is not what it seems
If you're fraying at the seams
Don't let your heart fray

24 hours ago
The night was all we had and then I had to go
24 hours ago
We were lovers
Just 24 hours ago
I tell you we were lovers
24 hours ago
24 hours ago

    General CommentThe chorus spills the song's core meaning right away. Due to lyrics, this can be easily be seen as a one night stand and she's reminiscing, romanticizing the time together. The way I hear it, this can be thought of as an ode to an exceptionally good time with someone you parted ways with just the day before. I like to think, it was a connection of two people, beginning as a friendly gesture and as they continued on, they felt a romantic chemistry neither of them would confirm or deny. They acted on physical impulse, quite clearly enjoyed themselves and moved on the next day. The song's perspective is one half of the pair looking back to think, wow, that was great. Instead of letting that be just a memory, maybe I should pursue this.
