Simon & Garfunkel: Wednesday Morning, 3 AM Meaning
Wednesday Morning, 3 AM Lyrics
Of the girl that I love,
As she lies here beside me
Asleep with the night,
And her hair, in a fine mist
Floats on my pillow,
Reflecting the glow
Of the winter moonlight.
She is soft, she is warm,
But my heart...

The song is about the last night he has with the woman that he loves. He is enjoying watching her sleeping next to him, but is sad because in the morning he will be leaving to pay for the crime he committed, the robbery. As he is looking at her, he is asking himself why he would commit a crime that would take him away from her and leave him with nothing but the memory of that night, their last together.

What is the third verse about? In the midst of a lovely love song, suddenly he despairs over robbing a liquor store??
