"Then Came the Morning" as written by and Kanene Pipkin Brian Elmquist....
Yeah
Then came the morning
It was bright, like a light that you kept from your smile
Then came the morning
Like a flood from the storm that you kept from my heart

Take the dog with you when you leave
Wash my hands of all this broken heave
Never forget what you thought you’d never be
If you ever let me
Break the spell and try and
Leave it when we couldn’t find it

Then came the morning
It was bright, like a light that you kept from your smile
Then came the morning
Like a flood from the storm that you kept from my heart

Take my words, breathe them out like smoke
Burn every single letter that I wrote
Let the pages turn to ash, I don’t want them back
Everything you always said to me
Starts to sound like broken glass on streets
Spreaded out all over places where I sleep

Now you finally left me
Done with all your lying
Joy comes in the morning
You won’t see me crying

Then came the morning
It was bright, like the light that you kept from your smile
Then came the morning
Like a flood from the storm that you kept from my heart

Then came the morning
It was lost when you left when you took what I felt
Then came the morning

Then came the morning
Then came the morning
Then came the morning
When the storm breaks the cold
Not towards the line I thought you stole
Start to feel what I felt way before
You broke down my front door
Popped my heart up off the wooden floor
Now I don’t need your smile anymore

Then came the morning
It was bright, like a light that you kept from your smile
Then came the morning
Like a flood from the storm that you kept from my heart (then came the morning)
Then came the morning
Then came the morning
Then came the morning
Then came the morning
Then came the morning

    My InterpretationFirst and foremost - this band is the real deal. They're even better live than CD. I've seen them in little hole in the wall bars and at a festival - and BOTH times the blend of their voices hit somewhere deep inside you. You get the instant chills. The musicianship is on point every time. They love what they do and it makes you love watching them.

    On to song interpretation. They're that good of a band that this song could mean multiple things to multiple people. The most common thing is love - a broken relationship that ended. It could be just a relationship in general - parent, friend, or love.

    The singer went through a relationship or a period of time that was obviously rough. The person on the other end of the relationship took a lot out of him. This is his way of saying that when that person left - everything got better. 'Then came the morning' is the perfect title.

    Without talking in circles I think this song is a poetic way of giving a big ol' middle finger to the other person in a relationship that ended. In the beginning, it's everything they robbed him/her of and by the end it's that they're fine and better off without them.

    "When the sun breaks the cold, run towards the light I thought you stole.
    Start to feel what I felt way before you broke down my front door, wiped my heart up off the wooden floor. Now I don't need your smile anymore"

    That's a giant I don't need you anymore and despite all the crap you put me through - because with the morning, comes a new days - a day without you, a better day.
