dismal day lyrics – bread

i look into my morning mirror
and it reveals some things to me that i had not been able to see
i saw someone that i’m not sure i want to be
an empty lonely face was starin’ back at me

all and all, i would have to say, hey
it’s been a rather dismal day, hey

the afternoon was slow in coming
i drove myself outside the place the people that i knew would be there, there
and though they walked along pretending not to care
i knew behind my back they’d point and laugh and stare

all and all, i would have to say, hey
it’s been a rather dismal day, hey

and now the evening shadow’s falling
i guess it’s best i lay my hopes to rest for no one’s calling my name, name
i sit and wait behind a door that’s never knocked on
i live in silence like my phone that’s never talked on

all and all, i would have to say, hey
it’s been a rather dismal day, hey

all and all, i would have to say, hey
it’s been a rather dismal day, hey
hey hey hey hey hey

all and all, i would have to say, hey
it’s been a rather dismal day, hey
hey, hey
