The Avett Brothers - Morning Song

 
I was just now lying on the couch channel-surfing, trying to go to sleep, when I stopped on "Austin City Limits" and thought, "Well, another boring jam band, whoever they are, will certainly do the trick." Instead, I first got goosebumps and then started bawling at this song! It's beautiful! I'd never even heard of these guys before...
 

 
Hurts so bad, you don't come around here anymore
Worse than that, nothing's really helping
I've been thinking about drinking again
 
It's all right if you've finally stopped caring
Just don't go and tell someone that does
'Cause even though I know there's hope in
every morning song,
I have to find that melody alone
 
Her name became the flame unto the fire
A magpie on a wire warned of those
dead unto the high, shamelessly alive unto the low
 
It's all right if you've finally stopped caring
Just don't go and tell someone that does
'Cause even though I know there's hope in
every morning song,
I have to find that melody alone
 
We can go ahead if no one notices,
what's the point of it? I have to ask
how you learn to see the hope eternally
when you're sure to be leaving last?
 
Hurts so bad, more than I expected that it would
Worse than that, it seems to be lasting
just a little longer than it should
 
It's all right if you've finally stopped caring
Just don't go and tell someone that does
'Cause even though I know there's hope in
every morning song,
I have to find that melody alone
 
I have to sing the melody alone
