Song Description

A simple, heartfelt narrative about resolving feelings of invalidation following a breakup. Beginning at 6 AM, and concluding at 10 PM, the lyrics follow the thoughts and feelings of the speaker as he comes to grips with the course of a recent relationship in a realistic and honest fashion. Although the feelings of pain and invalidation are ponderous, he remarks, "Still I know, it wasn't always pain. It wasn't always rain -- sometimes the skies were blue. And looking back at all the times we had, I know it wasn't bad to be in love with you."

Story Behind the Song

A heart-to-paper snapshot of a real-life experience.

Lyrics

Every morning, 6 AM
I wake to my alarm again
I wipe my eyes, but dreams don't wipe away.

Your photograph beside my bed
Rewinds the story in my head.
I play it back as I begin my day.

Still I know, it wasn't always pain.
It didn't always rain.
Sometimes the skies were blue.

Looking back, at all the times we had,
I know it wasn't bad
To be in love with you.

Every evening 10 PM,
I find my way to bed again.
I close my eyes, but you don't disappear.

I do my best to leave behind
The memories that haunt my mind,
I try to sleep, but I always find you here.

[chorus]
