"Morning Song" as written by and Jewel Kilcher....
Let the phone ring, let's go back to sleep
Let the world spin outside our door,
You're the only one that I want to see
Tell your boss you're sick, hurry, get back in I'm getting cold
Get over here and warm my hands up, boy, it's you they love to hold
And stop thinking about what your sister said
Stop worrying about it, yes the cat's already been fed
Come on darlin', let's go back to bed

Put the phone machine on hold
Leave the dishes in the sink
Do not answer the door
It's you that I adore,
I'm gonna give you some more

We'll sit on the front porch, the sun can warm my feet
You can drink your coffee with sugar and cream
I'll drink my decaf herbal tea
Pretend we're perfect strangers and that we never met,
My, you remind me of a man I used to sleep with
That's a face I'd never forget
And you can be Henry Miller and I'll be Anais Nin
Except this time it'll be even better,
We'll stay together in the end
Come on darlin', let's go back to bed

Put the phone machine on hold
Leave the dishes in the sink
Do not answer the door
For you, I'd be a poor man's wife
I'm gonna give you some more

Let the phone ring, let's go back to sleep

    General Commenthave you ever thought of the title implying "mourning song" instead of "morning song"?

    It changes the meaning for me.

    General CommentThis song to me along with many others of jewel explains that lifes too short-enjoy every moment of life while you can and dont take it for granted

    There is no hope for a civilization which starts each day to the sound of an alarm clock. ~Author Unknown

    General CommentI love Jewel the way she used to be. Real. I'm up at 6:45am on my first weekend off in 5 months. The boss called to see if I could come in. As I was lying there beside the wife, this song came to my head. I should have put the phone machine on hold and left the dishes in the sink. I won't answer the door. Screw the world outside... I'm taking two days off in a row! lol It's a beautiful song.

    The way she used to be.
