Morning Sun – This is another I wrote half in Holland and half in Ireland. I started this with the loop which is played throughout the song, it has a bit of the Who feeling to it.  I then added the piano and the drum beat, then gradually I added more instruments. It was later that I wrote the lyrics to this. Its about a man waiting in line at the Dole (social welfare) office. I got the idea for it when I was signing on myself so I guess its kind of half autobiographical. There was a time when the queue to the social welfare office was so long that you would have to wait a few hours before you even could step inside the office. While I was waiting I thought about how everyone around me must be feeling and what they must be thinking. So I wrote most of the song there and then.
