The Fading Light “In the Morning”

This is a song I wrote about someone in my life who would constantly disparage themselves, they would always seek assurance that I thought they were pretty, always refer to themselves as ugly, and even give me push back when I said I thought they were beautiful.

It was frustrating, to say the least, to try to express to someone that you think they’re wonderful only to be met with a lack of
self-appreciation every time. I wrote this song to try to express that when I say “you’re beautiful”, I’m not talking about how you look today.

-Josh Doran

 

You’re far too hard on yourself

When you look in the mirror

Because every time your eyes meet mine

Everything is so much clearer

And I don’t understand what to do or say

To make you feel any better

So I sit here undecided

While I’m writing you this letter

And you’ll try to deny it but you’re wrong

Because I can’t take my eyes off your sleeping smile

In the morning

When I wake up

And the sun is shining on your face

Before the makeup

And the pretty clothes

Before your hair is done

I can see you sleeping soundly

You lay there just like you were made

And you don’t know

How beautiful you are

How beautiful you are to me

So maybe if I described it

In some poetic way

I could elicit some reaction

The summer blue sky and the green earth have nothing on you honey

But still I sense dissatisfaction

And I’ve never been so frustrated

Every day I tell you that you’ve made it

But you’re still unreceptive

So tell me what am I supposed to do?

I need to find a better way to get through to you

So I wrote this melody to give you some perspective

If there’s a doubt left in your head then you’re so wrong

Because I can’t take my eyes off your sleeping smile

In the morning

When I wake up

And the sun is shining on your face

Before the makeup

And the pretty clothes

Before your hair is done

I can see you sleeping soundly

You lay there just like you were made

And you don’t know

How beautiful you are

How beautiful you are to me

If only I could make you see

Everything you mean to me

If only I could open up your mind

And make you see yourself through my eyes

In the light of every sunrise

In the morning

When I wake up

And the sun is shining on your face

Before the makeup

And the pretty clothes

Before your hair is done

I can see you sleeping soundly

You lay there just like you were made

And you don’t know

How beautiful you are

How beautiful you are to me
