"A Plain Morning" as written by and Christopher Andrew Carrabba....
It's yet to be determined
But the air is thick
And my hope is feeling worn
I'm missing home

And I'm glad you're not a part of this
There's parts of me that will be missed

And the phone is always dead to me
So I can't tell you the temperature is dropping
And it feels like...

It's colder than it oughtta be in March
And I've still got a day or two ahead of me
Till I'll be heading home into your arms again
And the people here are asking after you
It doesn't make it easier
It doesn't make it easier to be away

I'd like to hire a plane
And see you in the morning
When the day is fresh I'm coming home again

Coming home again
Coming home again
When the day is fresh I'm coming home again

It's warmer where you're waiting
It feels more like July
There's pillows in their cases
And one of those is mine

She wrote the words I love you
And sprayed it with perfume
Its better than the fire is
To heat this lonely room

It's warmer where you're waiting
It feels more like July
It feels more like July

And it's yet to be determined
But the air is thick
And my hope is feeling worn
I'm missing home

And I'm glad you're not a part of this
There's parts of me that will be missed

And the phone is always dead to me
So I can't tell you the temperature is dropping
And it feels like...

It's colder than it oughtta be in March
And I've still got a day or two ahead of me
Till I'll be heading home into your arms again
And the people here are asking after you
It doesn't make it easier
It doesn't make it easier to be away

I'd like to hire a plane
And see you in the morning
When the day is fresh I'm coming home again

Coming home again
Coming home again
When the day is fresh I'm coming home again

    General Commentactually i was at a dc show a few weeks ago and chris himself explained that the song is about when he lived in florida he had to come up north bc one of his friends went missing and they commenced a search, in the end it didnt end well but one morning while they still had hope of finding his friend he wrote this lovely song:)

    General Commentconsidering no one has written about this song yet, i guess i should start out with something more meaningful than "omg! this song is great!!!"..

    this is the first dashboard song i ever downloaded/heard and it got me hooked ever since, thereafter. this shit is the root for me, its amazing.

    as for the song, its obviously about a guys trip or something of that nature that hes tired of and wants to be over so he can be back with his lady. who cant relate to this? even if the "Trip" is something as simple as going to work.

    all the stuff he sees where he is reminds him of home. "and the people here are asking after you, it dosnt make it easier".. perfect example.

    this is one of the few dashboard songs that make sense right off the bat. i think he uses some strange style of writing in his other songs because none of them seem to really flow together lyrically, i mean, everything works, but it seems like some lines are out of place, or in the wrong order at times. maybe hes telling more than one story per song..who knows.

    General Commentonce again... AMAZING :) Yea.. i'm with you guys, i have no idea how he does it.. but it does, and he's wonderful.

    Pretty much everyone can relate to this song if they want to, because it's one of those songs w/ lyrics that you can adjust to mean what you want them to mean.

    I know what he intended for it to mean.. but i consider it my theme song - for a situation a little different than what he's talking about.. i won't bore you w/ the details :), but basically he's great*

    General CommentI wish I could smile when I listen to this song, but I just can't. Don't get me wrong I love this song, but the person I went home to recently hadn't been waiting for me like Chris'. I hope one day I can come home from school, or something to see my girl just as happy to see me as I am her.
