When the sun goes up, you're searching for a love
So your heart won't lead you to anyone

from The Weeknd – Adaptation Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

There’s a couple things happening with this intro

When you’re actively looking for someone special, often you fail — maybe because you are trying too hard, you’re not being yourself, or maybe the environment isn’t really conducive to your style. But when the night hits, that’s when you hit your stride — you can get loose, kick game and generally be yourself, you find much more success.

But…

The fun and excitement of the night is fleeting, especially when it comes to love. Sure you had a threesome with a couple russian models, but that Sunday morning can be brutal, when you have to take them all out for breakfast. You’re hungover, they want to go somewhere expensive and god they won’t stop talking. You really just want to be back at home, waking up beside with a nice girl, she’ll make you bacon and eggs and say “honey, don’t you want to stay in and watch Tosh.0 reruns”. That’s where you want to be. And thus you go back to looking for love during the day.
