  • Hey
    Good morning

    How can I explain it? Scratchin' my brain
    How can ten hours feel like ten years?
    I cry ten men's tears as it disappears
    With the passionate atmosphere
    Took your glove as a souvenir
    Left the other on the pillow as I stroked your ear
    One last breath of your hair, stared for a second
    And then the doorway beckoned
    See, I'm a lover not a fighter
    So I didn't fight the fact that I more than liked ya
    Didn't matter we were under influence
    Made sense, this was more than lust
    I don't owe you, you don't owe me
    One night only, if only
    I could take you back and just show you off
    But I guess if I did that, the magic is lost

    Believe me, I wanna stay
    But I'm off and away

    Hey, good morning
    We watch the sun come up
    It's callin'
    I want another day with you

    You and that red dress, what a pairin'
    I kept staring, we couldn't have said less
    Can't let my head rest, thinking about ya
    Really wanna look into your catwoman eyes
    Turn back time, 'cause it flies by
    You know, them Marty McFly vibes
    See, I can picture the bright lights
    Sights, the night skies and boats go by
    I don't why it happened so fast
    When I tried to speak your language, I'm happy you laughed
    Ha, 'cause I'm hardly a linguist
    Spoke through kisses 'cause you didn't speak English
    And it was hard to distinguish
    Love at first sight or holiday romance?
    Don't care, I was lost in the moment
    I really should've missed that flight

    Believe me I wanna stay
    But I'm goin' away

    Hey, good morning
    We watch the sun come up
    It's callin'
    I want another day with you
    Hey, good morning
    We watch the sun come up
    It's callin'
    I want just one more day with you

    I don't think I could be dreamin', I felt your touch
    No, I remember you breathin' when I woke up
    Now all I have are these memories I can't trust
    Just one day, won't be enough

    Hey, good morning
    We watch the sun come up
    It's callin'
    I want another day with you
    Hey, good morning
    We watch the sun come up
    It's callin'
    I want just one more day with you Writer/s: Alex James Smith, Elliot Gleave
