I want to know the meaning of the 1st. 2 lines of Sugar Ray's "Every Morning", you know, the ones that go:

Every morning there's a halo hanging from the corner of my girlfriend's 4-post bed
I know it's not mine but I see if I can use it for the weekend or a 1-night stand


Thank you, guys!

Alex.-

wow... no one knows the exact meaning but the person who wrote it. But my interpretation is he's saying his girlfriend is an angel who never cheats or does anything wrong. And he wants to borrow her angelic status so he can be an angel, but just for the weekend or a one-night stand, because he doesn't want to be perfect permanently. That's how I've always thought of it, but I'm sure there are many, many more interpretations out there, much deeper than mine.

hmmmm, but the fact that the halo is hanging on the post, and she's not wearing it might mean that she's an angel by day, but a little devil by night....

Good interpretation...I was thinking along the same lines as Laurie.

Me too.

yeah, you guys are much deeper thinkers than me.

Taking the entire song into effect, I would say that the girlfriend isn't a very nice person - no angel, anyway.

i think it's about one of those relationships where you keep going back to each other even though you know it's not going to work. so she's causing him heartache because he doesn't know if he can trust her to always be an angel. but he still stays with her because she 'rights the wrong' for him. not sure why he wants to borrow her halo though? it's kind of confusing really!

"Every Morning"

Every morning there's a halo hangin
from the corner of my girlfriend's four post bed
I know it's not mine but I'll see if I can use it for the weekend or a one-night stand

Couldn't understand
How to work it out

Once again as predicted left my broken heart open
and you ripped it out
Something's got me reeling
Stopped me from believing
Turn me around again

Said that we can do it
You know I wanna do it again

(Sugar Ray say)
Oh...........
(Every Morning)
Oh................
(Every Morning when I wake up)
(Shut the door baby, don't say a word)
Oh.......
(She always rights the wrong, she always rights, she always rights)
(Shut the door baby, Shut the door baby)

Every Morning there's a heartache hanging
from the corner of my girlfriend's four-post bed
I know it's not mine and I know she thinks she loves me
but I never can believe what she said

Something so deceiving
When you stop believing
Turn me around again
Said we couldn't do it
You know I wanna do it again

Oh...........
(Every Morning)
Oh..................
(Every Morning when I wake up)
(Shut the door baby, don't say a word)
Oh...........
(Every Morning)
Oh..........
(Every Morning when I wake up)
(Shut the door baby, shut the door baby)

She always rights the wrong
For me
Baby
She always rights the wrong
For me

Every Morning there's a halo hanging
from the corner of my girlfriend's four-post bed
I know it's not mine but I'll see if I can use it for
the weekend or a one-night stand
(Shut the door baby, don't say a word)
Every Morning
Every Morning when I wake up
(Shut the door baby, shut the door baby)
Every Morning
Every Morning (Turn me around again)
(Shut the door baby, don't say a word)
Every Morning
Every Morning
a fountain of blood in the shape of a girl

Hey, people.

This is Alexious himself. Only I didn't remember my password and the system didn't wanna retrieve it to me... anyway, I think I'm starting getting this song now.
See, I used to listen to it when it came out a lot but I didn't speak much English back then but sure it reminds me of those good days when I play it 'cause its melody's just too catchy.
So he just wants to keep her though he knows she doesn't want him the way he wants her to want him.
I started to think "When It's Over" goes the same way, doesn't it?

Thank you, guys!
