It's just like any other day

I wake and wash and boil the kettle

And she is just so far away

Testing my resolve and my mettle

The sun is shining brightly

I make some toast and burn it

I have known this lesson before

But sadly I have never learned it

It's just like any other day

I have hardly slept a wink

I roll myself some weed to smoke

I think about a drink

The clouds are forming quickly

The skies are turning grey

I turn her name over in my mind

She's just so far away

It's just like any other day

Outside it starts to rain

No matter what I try to do

I'm still alone with my pain

So I think of other things to do

But it all turns out the same

I cannot stop thinking 'bout her

I cannot forget her name

It's just like any other day

I try to laugh and smile

Then reality hits home again

And happiness lasts a short while

Outside the skies are turning black

The sun has gone to bed

I want to sleep but can't face it alone

So I lay awake with thoughts of her in my head
