Gwen Stefani – 4 In The Morning Lyrics

Gwen Stefani - 4 In The Morning Lyrics

“4 in the Morning” is a song by American singer and songwriter Gwen Stefani from her second studio album The Sweet Escape (2006). It was written by Stefani and co-written and produced by Tony Kanal, with additional production by Mark “Spike” Stent. Interscope Records serviced the song to US mainstream radio on May 8, 2007, as the album’s third single; elsewhere it was released in June 2007. Described as one of her favorite songs on the album, Stefani began writing the song while pregnant and finished with Kanal, having Roberta Flack and Billy Idol hits as influences to built the track.

“4 in the Morning” was defined as a 1980s-inspired midtempo synthpop ballad, with its instrumentation of a light keyboard during its intro through its break, a guitar, synthetic strings and a slick sheen. Lyrically, the song talks about a relationship on the edge, with the protagonist trying to save her love. The song received generally positive reviews from music critics, who noted it as an improvement over her last singles, while praising its tempo and highlighting her vocals.

Commercially, it failed to replicate the commercial success of previous singles in the United States, peaking at number 54; it proved to be successful elsewhere, reaching the top-ten in New Zealand and Australia, while reaching the top 20 in several European countries. Its accompanying music video was directed by Stefani’s longtime collaborator Sophie Muller and features the singer lying in bed and walking around her apartment while performing the song in a melancholic mood. The song was performed during The Sweet Escape Tour and in some concerts Stefani made during 2015.

Gwen Stefani – 4 In The Morning Lyrics

Wakin’ up to find another day
The moon got lost again last night
But now the sun has finally had its say
I guess I feel alright

But it hurts when I think
When I let it sink in, its all over me
Im lyin’ here in the dark
I’m watchin’ you sleep, it hurts a lot

And all I know is
Youve got to give me everything
Nothing less ’cause
You know I give you all of me

I give you everything that I am
Im handin over everything that Ive got
‘Cause I wanna have a really true love
Dont ever wanna have to go and give you up

Stay up till four in the mornin’ and the tears are pourin’
And I want to make it worth the fight
What have we been doin’ for all this time?
Baby, if were gonna do it, come on do it right

All I wanted was to know Im safe
Dont want to lose the love Ive found
Remember when you said that you would change
Dont let me down

Its not fair how you are
I cant be complete, can you give me more?

And all I know is
Youve got to give me everything
Nothing less ’cause
You know I give you all of me

I give you everything that I am
Im handin’ over everything that Ive got
‘Cause I wanna have a really true love
Dont ever wanna have to go and give you up

Stay up till four in the mornin’ and the tears are pourin’
And I want to make it worth the fight
What have we been doin’ for all this time?
Baby if were gonna do it, come on do it right

Oh please, you know what I need
Save all your love up for me
We cant escape the love
Give me everything that you have

And all I know is
Youve got to give me everything
Nothing less ’cause
You know I give you all of me

I give you everything that I am
Im handin’ over everything that Ive got
‘Cause I wanna have a really true love
Dont ever wanna have to go and give you up

Stay up till four in the mornin’ and the tears are pourin’
And I want to make it worth the fight
What have we been doin’ for all this time?
Baby if were gonna do it, come on do it right

Give you all of me
Give you everything
Give you all of me
