John Ruskan – Day By Day lyrics

I wake up early all alone
I check the message on the phone.
Day by Day
I pull myself together and
Remind myself to call that friend.
I’m sort of edgy and insecure
I hear about things but I can’t be sure.
I can’t be certain if I’m right
But maybe something’s on your mind, tonight.

I decide to go for coffee now
To sit alone amongst the crowd.
Day by Day
I read a paper lying there
It’s full of news but I don’t care.
I watch the people as they meet
I know about things but I cannot speak.
I tell you that I’m feeling fine
You look at me like it’s just a lie.

The day goes by, I work till eight
I didn’t want to work so late.
Day by Day
Turn on the screen, the blues and greens
I watch until it’s time to sleep.
Fall down dead like some kind of fool
I see you there but I can’t be cool.
You want to talk, to understand
You tell me I’m the only man.
