Not a Good Day (to Have a Bad Day)by Jesse Daniel EdwardsASCAPyes I found your note lying on the bedside tablestating that you couldn’t stayand here I thought you just leftto pick up breakfastlooks like breakfast is going to have to waitand the rain pools under that leak in that windowas love evaporatesI close my eyes and let my dreams take me awayhow could tomorrow ever follow todayit’s only 8 AM I already know nothing’s going to go my wayI’m going back to bed come wake me up when my luck has changedit’s not a good dayit’s not a good dayit’s not a good dayto have a bad dayyes I got your traffic ticket in the mailI pulled out my checkbook to payafter all it was probably my faultthat you were rushing across townin the middle of the night to escapethat wine stain on that white shirtin that box under the stairsit’s the brightest colors that fadeI close my eyes and let my world fade away
