"Morning Song" as written by and Robert William Crawford Scott Yancey Avett....
Hurt so bad
You don't come around here anymore
Worse than that
Nothing's really helping I've been thinking
'bout drinking again

It's alright
If you finally stop caring
Just don't go and tell someone that does
'Cause even though I know there's hope in
Every morning song
I have to find that melody alone

Her name became
The flame unto the fire
A magpie on the wire warned of those
Dead until the high
Shamelessly alive until the low

It's alright
If you finally stop caring
Just don't go and tell someone that does
'Cause even though I know there's hope in
Every morning song
I have to find that melody alone

But we can go ahead
If no one notices
What's the point of it?
I have to ask

How you learn to see
The hope eternally
When you're sure to leave
Oh, leave at last

Hurt so bad
More than I expected that it would
Worse than that
It seems to be lasting just a little
Longer than it should

It's alright
If you finally stop caring
Just don't go and tell someone that does
'Cause even though I know there's hope in
Every morning song
I have to find that melody alone (I have to find that melody alone)
I have to find that melody alone (I have to find that melody alone)
I have to find that melody alone (I have to find that melody alone)
I have to find that melody alone (I have to find that melody alone)
I have to sing the melody alone

    My InterpretationMy interpretation of this song is a young man who set out on a conquest to fulfill himself and by trying to do that he went about it the wrong way. He found someone of a significant other to try to complete him and the results of it were she wasn't what his heart truly desired but a temporary fix to soothe him and comfort him in times of trials and tribulations. Due to this he wasn't able to direct his attention on satisfying her needs because the relationship was in vain to fulfill his own selfish needs. Now that she has grown tired and left him he is missing the affection and comfort she gave him as he states "Even though I know there is hope in every morning song, I'll have to find that melody all alone" The melody symbolizes happiness, completeness, and comfort which only comes from submitting himself before God to find his true purpose and plan. He has now found that he will have to deal with his own emptiness and try his best to find the melody on his own. The girl he sings about was his "Morning Song" because there is hope in EVERY morning song, she gave him hope but it wasn't the right kind and wasn't enough to endure and suffice the hardships of him being lost and without his true identity he couldn't keep the relationship together which was a band aid or a "Morning song" rather. It hurt him greatly and more than he expected that it should because he knew he didn't feel as genuinely toward his significant other as they did he which caught him completely off guard which only added insult to his preexisting emptiness and confusion of dealing with the turmoils and troubles of his life and it has no dawned on him that no other person can help him find the melody which symbolizes God but by himself , all alone.

    General CommentThere is no indication that this song has anything to do with God.

    I think there are some details in this song that are pretty tough to decipher without hearing from the man that wrote it. But I think simply it means you have to find your own hope and happiness. And that can only be done alone. As for the details, obviously someone has left him or he has left someone and he's depressed about it. He's come to terms with it and recognizes that it's over, but it still hurts. He still thinks about her and doesn't like the thought of her finding someone else.
