thirty-one: “in the morning, before work” by owen.

mercat de la boqueria. barcelona. march 2012.

I’ve loved this song since the first time I heard it. I have the lyrics scrawled on my bedroom wall… but it is not my handwriting. (But this song about you, keeps coming out…)

I eat with these crooked teeth
Tomato soup and grilled cheese
But you already know that because you used to dine with me
Do you remember?

I listen to my same old cd’s
New order & Morissey
But you already know that because you used to ride with me
I thought i’d be singing a different tune by now
But this song about you keeps coming out

I sleep in these dirty sheets
A blanket between my boney knees
But you already know that because you used to crawl in bed with me in the morning before work

Put your hands on my back
Kiss the back of my neck

I thought i’d be singing a different tune by now
But this song about you keeps coming out
I hoped to be singing to someone new by now
But the songs about you
