"Watch The Sun Come Up" as written by Elliot Gleave and Alex James Smith....
Hey, good morning
Hey, it's calling
Hey, good morning
Watch the sun come up
It's calling
I want another day with you

How can I explain it scratchin my brain
How can 10 hours feel like 10 years?
I cry 10 men's tears as it disappears
With the passionate atmosphere
Took your glove as a souvenir
Left the other on the pillow as I stroked your ear
One last breathe of your hair, stared for a second
Then the doorway beckoned
I'm a lover not a fighter
So I didn't fight the fact that I more than liked ya
Didn't matter we were under influence
Made sense this was more than lust
I don't own you, you don't own me
One night only, if only
I could take you back and just show you off
But I guess if I did that, the magic is lost

Believe me I wanna stay
But I'm off and away

Hey, Good Morning
Watch the sun come up
It's calling
I want another day with you

You and that red dress - What a pairing
I kept staring, you couldn't have said less
Cant let my head rest, thinking about ya,
Really wanna look into your catwoman eyes
Turn back time, cause it flies by
You know, them Marty mcfly vibes
See, I can picture the bright lights
Sights and night skies and boats go by
I don't why it happened so fast
When I tried to speak your language I'm happy you laughed
Cause I'm hardly a linguist
Spoke through kisses you didn't speak English
And It was hard to distinguish
Love at first sight or holiday romance?
Don't care I was lost in the moment
I really shoulda missed that flight

Believe me I wanna stay
But I'm going away

Hey, Good Morning
Watch the sun come up
It's calling
I want another day with you
Hey, Good Morning
Watch the sun come up
It's calling
I want just one more day with you

I don't think I could be dreaming I felt your touch
No I remember you breathing when I woke up
Now all I have are these memories I can't trust
Just one day, wont be enough

Hey, Good Morning
Watch The Sun Come Up
It's calling
I want another day with you
Hey, Good Morning
Watch The Sun Come Up
It's calling
I want another day with you

    General Commentwoah. can't believe how much i love this!
    there's a remix of it thats being played quite a lot on the radio now.. no way as good as this one though. the remix version misses out all the verses, the best bits!

    as for what it means... i think its self-explanitory if you read it through.
    From what i understood from it, he met a girl on holiday, he's saying that he met this (sounds like) amazing girl on holiday, and although they didn't even speak the same language it didnt matter because he knew there was something there that just fitted. "When I tried to speak your language Im happy you laughed, Cos I'm hardly a linguist, spoke through kisses cos you didn't speak English"
    and he says he was quite drunk, so he's trying to recall as much of it as he can. from the sounds of it he wakes up, sees her next to him and wants to stay with her, have another day with her. He's remembering everything from the night before about this woman and knows there's something special between them, even though they hardly knew eachother. But he knows he has to go, and im assuming he goes back to wherever. He's almost regretting it, he says "I really shoulda missed that flight" as though he wishes he was still with her. But he knows that the fact that he had one night with her makes it so special, he knows that if he stayed with her it wouldnt be as good as the one night they had together - her says that it was a "one night only" and says "if only I could take you back and just show you off But I guess if I did that, the magic is lost". If he tried to make it last longer than it could th magic of that one night would be lost.

    it's beautiful :) sorry if i bored you! xx

    General Commentthere is another song just like this from example, 'one night', it makes the lyrics easier to analyse and uses jose gonzalez's song 'heartbeats', which is one of the best acoustic songs around.
