lyrics

I dreamed I woke beside you, ten years after high school
You had just moved back to town
We had made amends, once again, we were more than friends
Laying tangled like our clothes upon the ground

And it was finally clear, what I'd been missing all those years
Lay sleeping there between my arms
But when I turned to kiss your face, I found that you had been replaced
By my pillow and the sound of my alarm

Because the morning always lets me down
Yeah the morning always lets me down
The morning always lets me down
Yeah the morning always lets me down

Ten o'clock each night, when all my neighbors dim their lights
That's when I reinvent my master plan
I break out all my lists and maps and old vacation photographs
Try and get my world to spin around again

And with every passing drink, I grow more confident and think
Maybe tomorrow I could really make a change
But when the daylight spills into my house and I'm still passed out on the couch
I know tomorrow will have to wait another day

Because the morning always lets me down
Yeah the morning always lets me down
The morning always lets me down
Yeah the morning always lets me down

I once lived in the light of day
But I lost my heart so I pulled the shade
I'd love to wake now but I’m afraid
The sunrise is just another empty promise waiting to break

Because the morning always lets me down
Yeah the morning always lets me down
The morning always lets me down
Yeah the morning always lets me down

Every night I pray, my dreams might see the light of day, but the morning always lets me down
