LYRICAL POETRY: Another Rainy Day

Hey bartender, pass the brew, I’ve been in this bar all night

The lady’s waiting, it’s half-past two, and I still ain’t seen the light

I say hello and there’s no answer, I’m afraid I might be lost

The inside’s in an uproar and the outside’s full of frost

It’s sure been a long time since I felt the warming sun

Brush against my aching eyes when the night is done.

Now my heart is full of flowers that withered in the hours

I had nothing left do and nothing more to say

Every day is cold and lonely; lifeless, plain, and homely

And every morning melts into another rainy day.

Now I feel like I am different and I feel like someone new

Are my eyes still open? Do I still look the same to you?

I guess it’s good to change a little, guess that we all should

If I could change how I was back then, you know that I still would.

Now my heart is full of flowers that withered in the hours

I had nothing left do and nothing more to say

Every day is cold and lonely; lifeless, plain, and homely

And every morning melts into another rainy day.

Sometimes now when I count the days I see what has gone by

All the things that mattered then have now become a sigh

Caught in the wind that’s in this night, blowing like a horn

Across the world like a funeral bell, now I lie down to mourn.

Now my heart is full of flowers that withered in the hours

I had nothing left do and nothing more to say

Every day is cold and lonely; lifeless, plain, and homely

And every morning melts into another rainy day.

Now the ghost of every evening comes streaming through my dreams

I now know that nothing here will ever be as it seems

I just have to take face value and hope it will be enough

There’s holes in the heart of me and my edges are pretty rough.

Now my heart is full of flowers that withered in the hours

I had nothing left do and nothing more to say

Every day is cold and lonely; lifeless, plain, and homely

And every morning melts into another rainy day.
