Lyrics

Sunday Afternoon

Yesterday was just like any other day
it came and it was gone to the left, corner of my eye
And I felt so unusual, having never stayed up
To see the dawn going down, west coast eyes
And I don’t want you in the morning
And I won’t see you on your Sunday afternoon

Have you ever seen a Midwest sky late at night?
When the rain starts coming down, it takes away your sight
And you can run for cover as you try to run and hide
You might scramble through the bushes to try and find some light
But I don’t want you in the morning
And I won’t see you on your Sunday afternoon

Hey now, do you really want to be?
Hey now could you really forsake me?
No I don’t want you in the morning
I won’t see you on your Sunday afternoon

Well I ran into nothing Thursday afternoon
He came up through the basement, came into my room
So you’re the one that says he only takes what he can get
And leaves us on the sidewalk, a fading cigarette
No I don’t want you in the morning
And I won’t see you on your Sunday afternoon

So yesterday was just like any other day
It came and it was gone to the left, corner of my eye
And I felt so unusual, it was almost inconceivable
I’d stayed up through the moonlight, west coast thighs
But I don’t want you in the morning
And I won’t see you on your Sunday afternoon

Hey now, do you really want to be?
Hey now could you really forsake me?
No I don’t want you in the morning
I won’t see you on your Sunday afternoon
