Day Blues

Well, it's Day Blues
Sunlight's  shining down on bad news
Makes you feel like everything you do is gonna lose
Sunlight frownin' down on me, cause you didn't sleep
Sunlight frownin' down on me

When my nights get so bad
That I'm hangin'out sad
And still the long hours of the morning
When the day folks arise
With the sleep in their eyes
To go follow the tracks they've been born in

That's the Day Blues
Stayin'away, girl, a little too long
Now I'm sittin'in the middle of a blue song
Same old right back thinkin'bout you, son
Sunlight frownin'down on me

When the dawn comes to leave
Why does light have to be?
Like the mirror that's showin' I'm older
And the sun don't feel good
And I ask how I could
When it feels like a crow on my shoulder

Well, it's Day Blues
Sunlight's  shining down on bad news
Makes you feel like everything you do is gonna lose
Sunlight frownin' down on me, cause you didn't sleep
Sunlight frownin' down on me
