Autumn, Emilie - I Remember Mornings Lyrics




I remember mornings
I remember stars
I remember sunlight
And moonlight and firelight and sky
I remember all these things, but why?

This is no place for memories
This is no place for tears
These long-forgotten memories
Must become forgotten years
Here no one has a past
Forget your memories fast
They'll haunt us if we let them last
But why do I remember mornings?
In mourning still am I

This is no place for pity
They're mad-this is the cost
Yet every girl reminds me of the child
The child I've lost
I'll look the other way
Endure another day
Embrace the part that I must play
But why do I remember mornings?
In mourning still am I

And so I'll leave them as I found them
My soul has turned to stone
But these cages that surround them
Just as well may be my own

Was I always grey?
Was I always cold?
When did I become so old?
Was I ever kind?
Did I ever laugh?
Did I ever love?
Did I ever live?

But I remember laughter
And joy before she fell
This life that followed after is no life
I live in Hell
God save me from my past
Let darkness follow fast
I've let her go and said my last goodbyes
But I remember mornings
Now I'm in mourning 'til I die

    Love the instrumental/melody from 4 o’clock.

    So beautiful. A prime example of Emilie being able to express so much within her music. I never felt any sympathy for Mournington in the book. Yes, i viewed her as tragic, but i couldn't feel true empathy for her until i heard this song and suddenly her whole life opened up before my eyes. This song completely added an entire other layer to this character for me. Just stunning. I will travel to america to see this show. I just have to, i can't risk it not catching on and travelling to the west end.

    This song is my top 2 after gutter to stars

    I remember mornings
    I remember stars
    I remember sunlight and moonlight and twilight and sky
    I remember all these things, but why

    This is no place for memories
    This is no place for tears
    These long-forgotten memories
    Must become forgotten years

    Here no one has a past
    Forget your memories fast
    They'll haunt us if we let them last
    But why do I remember mornings
    And so in mourning still am I

    This is no place for pity
    They're mad, this is the cost
    Yet every girl reminds me
    Of the child, the child I've lost

    I look the other way
    Endure another day
    Embrace the part that I must play
    But why do I remember mornings
    In mourning still am I

    And so I'll leave them as I found them
    My soul has turned to stone
    But these cages that surround them
    Just as well may be my own

    Was I always gray?
    Was I always cold?
    When did I become so old?
    Was I ever kind?
    Did I ever love?
    Did I ever love?
    Did I ever live?

    But I remember laughter
    And joy before she fell
    This life that followed after
    Is no life; I live in hell

    God save me from my past
    Let darkness follow fast
    I've let her go I've said my last goodbye
    But I remember mornings
    Now I'm in mourning 'til I die
