Liner Notes: 

I woke up with the first line in my head and this quickly emerged... not sure what i dreamed about but I don’t think it had a happy ending Smile

Lyrics: 

The Morning After

V1
sips of lukewarm regrets
wash down stale dialogue
a breakfast of remorse
served in morning after fog

heads pound with scrambled thoughts
that might be better to forget
but fried broken hearts suggest
they’ll pay recurring debts

PC/L
the intimate indiscreet strangers
that only recently met

C
fulfilled fantasies that first time
can be wonderfully intense
with passion and desire
so incredibly immense
but sometimes urgent lust
of a high binge filled night
can lose it’s luster
in the morning light

V2
leftover memories
scattered crumbs and messy spills
eye openers of delusions
see hard to swallow bitter pills

sharp bites of reality
drop from mouthfuls of little lies
while sorrowful shadows
grow wide in guilt ridden eyes

PC/L
as intimate Indiscreet strangers
now sober wonder why

C
fulfilled fantasies that first time
can be wonderfully intense
with passion and desire
so incredibly immense
but sometimes urgent lust
of a high binge filled night
can lose it’s luster
in the morning light

B
conflicted goodbyes
now exchanged
for former lives
now rearranged
to love once there
now forever changed...
by feasts of fantasy
tempting morsels
of infidelity

OUTRO
yeah sometimes urgent lust
of a high binge filled night
losses it’s luster
in the morning light

What an opening, and what a great piece came from that.

It’s so true that you can do things on the spur of the moment for short-lived highs, and then regret them, and I suppose that would be the same for dalliances, and this perfectly captures that!

With that opening line and your talent it had to be awesome!
