Going back in the morning time
To see if my love has changed her mind, yeah.
I know what i will find
That she is wasting time,
She could be picking roses.

Going back in the morning time
To see if my love has seen the light, yeah.
Oh, i told her last night
She should improve her sight,
She could be painting the roof.

Going back in the morning time
To see if my love has come around, yeah.
She offered me no sound,
Her head is in the ground,
She could be calling for winter.

    General CommentThe protagonist of this song sounds like an exasperated guy in a relationship with an immature, time-wasting, lazy but beautiful girl. While he works late (whether at a "straight" job or at night, like a musician), she sits around daydreaming, neglecting gardening and household tasks. His remonstrances are to no avail; she smiles sweetly at him and then, while he's away working his ass off, she's sitting on her ass doing nothing all day long.

    My InterpretationThey had an argument, she kicked him out/he left for the night to return in the morning. He knows what he's going to find - that she could not care less - she could be picking roses, or painting the roof for all he knows. He told her she needs to improve her sight - obviously she's not seeing his point of view. But not a peep out of her. She's close-minded, her head is in the ground. Or perhaps passive aggressive. It could be a long, cold winter before she changes her mind or sees the light.
