Sun Comes Up Its Tuesday Morning Lyrics

    Sun comes up, it's Tuesday morning
    hits me straight in the eye
    guess you forgot to close the blind last night
    Oh, that's right, I forgot, it was me

    I sure do miss the smell of black coffee in the morning,
    the sound of water splashing all over the bathroom,
    the kiss that you would give me even though I was sleeping,
    but I kind of like the feel of this extra few feet in my bed
    Telephone's ringing, but I don't answer it
    'cause everybody knows that good news always sleeps till noon

    Guess it's tea and toast for breakfast again
    maybe I'll add a little T.V. too
    No milk! God, how I hate that
    Guess I'll go to the corner, get breakfast from Jenny
    She's got a black eye this morning, `Jen how'd ya get it?'
    she says, `Last night, Bobby got a little bit out of hand'

    Lunchtime. I start to dial your number
    then I remember so I reach for something to smoke
    and anyways I'd rather listen to Coltrane
    than go through all that shit again

    There's something about an afternoon spent doing nothing
    Just listening to records and watching the sun falling
    Thinking of things that don't have to add up to something
    and this spell won't be broken
    by the sound of keys scraping in the lock

    Maybe tonight it's a movie
    with plenty of room for elbows and knees
    a bag of popcorn all to myself,
    black and white with a strong female lead
    and if I don't like it, no debate, I'll leave

    Here comes that feeling that I'd forgotten
    how strange these streets feel
    when you're alone on them
    Each pair of eyes just filled with suggestion
    So I lower my head, make a beeline for home
    Seething inside

    Funny, I'd never noticed
    the sound the streetcars make as they pass my window
    Which reminds me that I forgot to close the blind again
    Yeah, sure I'll admit there are times when I miss you
    Especially like now when I need someone to hold me
    but there are some things that can never be forgiven
    and I just gotta tell you
    that I kinda like this extra few feet in my bed
