"Tuesday Morning" as written by and Joshua/castillo Blum....
Too many sad days
Too many Tuesday mornings
I thought of you today
I wished it was yesterday morning
I thought of you today
And I dreamt you were dressed in mourning
But I knew that you
With your heart beating and your eyes shining
Would be dreaming of me
Lying with you on a Tuesday morning
I fell through the window
And I found out I was still breathing
I thought of tomorrow
And the fear that you might leave me
I thought of tomorrow
And I wished it was Monday evening
But I knew that you
With your heart beating and your eyes shining
Would be dreaming of me
Lying with you on a Tuesday morning

Turn your face from me
I will cover myself with sorrow
Bring Hell down upon me
I will surrender my heart to sorrow
Bring Hell down upon me
And I will say goodbye tomorrow
'Cause I know that you
With your heart beating and your eyes shining
Would be dreaming of me
Lying with you on a Tuesday morning

I know that you
With your heart beating and your eyes shining
Would be dreaming of me
Lying with you on a Tuesday morning

    General CommentThis is a beautifully soft song, and reminds me always of summer mornings, and waking up next to the person you love. Amazing xxx

    General CommentTrue, although I think it's about sadness, about missing someone.

    General CommentI'm amazed this song has never been linked to 9/11, as if you imagine the lyrics come from a firefighter lost on that day, it's eerie. (Fell through the window/dressed in mourning/Wish it was Monday evening, etc.). Great song!

    General Comment@DougMash, it has been, but i think this song is far too cheerful to be linked to death

    General CommentThis guy loves his woman so much that, even though he knows she will be leaving him soon, he is willing to endure that pain in order to stay in the moment with her now. He knows it will be painful as hell when she leaves, but he is willing to endure that pain, just to experience the joyful feelings of being in love that they have now.
    Hence "Turn your face from me/I will cover myself with sorrow/Bring hell down upon me/I will surrender my heart to sorrow".
    He anticipates the pain and sadness that is coming. But he also knows that she loves him, and he loves her. And he doesn't feel like those feelings will fade.

    General CommentThis is one of my favourite Pogues songs, even despite the absence of Shane's input.

    I met a particular girl once and spent a lovely night with her. Woke up and it was Tuesday Morning.
