That Day – Poe

She’s got a run in her stocking and she’s missing the heel of her shoe
Got up this morning rolled out of bed
I spilled a Diet Coke
Called my mother
Said, “;Hi.”; What I meant to say was:
“;Why is your life a joke?”;
Then I went down to that ugly bar and
I clicked my heels three times just like you said
And I climbed that road to your empty house
The anticipation was a turn-on…but you let me down
‘Cause I stood on that empty street alone
I said, “;I’m ready for my close-up now, Mr. Demille.”;
I waited for the light but it never shone
Well I wonder what you do with that expensive piece of land
That overlooks a billion years of history (I have a sneaking suspicion)
You will never understand
Hey maybe I’ll see you down by the Rocky & Bullwinkle
And we can talk to that charlatan psychic
And she can paint a prettier picture of your future.

‘Cause that day in my life…
That day in my life…
I dreamt tomorrow had a prettier face
I dreamt tomorrow would have better things to say
Than, “;You look like shit, what’s your problem, bitch?
