I don't recall What I was drinking, But after the third one I was gone Seventeen And not really thinking Just wanted something Real strong
Room spinnin' round faster and faster Drownin' in the midnight laughter But nothin' hits, nothin' hurts Like the morning after
I gave in To him completely. We made plans And we made love. But this world Can cut a heart so deeply. And we both gave 'Til we both gave up.
An that night I lost everything that mattered And I thought I couldn't get any sadder But nothin' hits, nothin' hurts, Like the morning after.
The morning after the storm The morning after all the rain When you wake up and you realize That you'll never be the same.
Oh I don't care What I'm drinking. Just give me something Real strong.
Room spinnin' round faster and faster Drownin' in the midnight laughter But nothin' hits, nothin' hurts, Oh nothin' hits, nothin' hurts, Like the morning after.

"The Way" by Fastball was inspired by the story of an elderly couple from Texas who drove to a nearby family reunion and kept going. Fastball's bass player imagined them taking off and having fun like they were young. The story didn't end well: the couple was later found dead after they crashed in a canyon.
The Prince-penned "Manic Monday" was the first song The Bangles heard coming from a car radio, but "Eternal Flame" is closest to Susanna's heart, perhaps because she sang it in "various states of undress."
