Good Morning Heartache Lyrics
You old gloomy sight
Good morning heartache
Thought we said goodbye last night
I turned and tossed until
It seems you we have gone
But here you are with the dawn
Wish I forget you
But you're here to stay

Billie could be singing about of number of things. Her heroin addiction, depression and her lover man that she could just as well be addicted to. Even though she loves him, he feels good to her (just like the heroin), but he's not good for her. In the end and none of it, the drugs, the heroin, or the lover want leave her alone--it's a heartache.

If Billie Holiday had writhen the song then it could be her heroin addiction she's singing about,but the song was written and composed for her so it most likely is about her battle with depression.

From the first time i read it i got the feeling it meant spirit or somthing that came into her that wouldnt leave then read comments about addiction then heard ole diry bastard cover it and he made statements like it meant somthing that possessed hik or took control of body life

My heart ache (my lover, my man) is not leaving me he stayed and watched over me protecting me. As he should...

I feel that "happiness" evades her, or maybe depression, not so much her addiction.
