one more day

On my way home, all along,
the stars in the moonless sky were crashing into my head
I heard what they said
The bottom kept falling all over again

One more day
Well, I suppose I can handle
Before my grip slips away
So I urge you stay and be merry

Half a world away
Still don’t know what to say
to get through to you
I do what I do and for that I will pay
but I hope that I first fade away

One more day
Well, I suppose I can handle
Before my grip slips away
So I urge you stay and be merry, be merry

All up and down
Or somewhere in between this little nowhere and town
I keep my head high
Move along with a sigh
For today I may die

One more day
Well, I suppose I can handle
Before my grip slips away
So I urge you stay and be merry, be merry, be merry

Now that I’ve found myself alone
with my head all spinning
I can picture you grinning
I back up down the roadway
where no witnesses can see me
No grace or god to free me
It is up to me alone to pick it up and move on
So I pick it up and move on

One more day
Well, I suppose I can handle
Before my grip slips away
So I urge you stay and be merry, be merry

On my way home, all along
the stars in the moonlit sky were crashing into my head
I heard what they said
The bottom kept falling all over again
