  1. Rainy Monday

From the album The Juggler

Lyrics

It was dark in the kitchen
As he walked down the stairs
He ran his thick fingers through his greasy hair
The milk cooled his coffee
As he stared at the floor
Just couldn't take it no more

It’s a rainy Monday again
The leaves are falling from the trees
The wind doesn’t feel like a breeze anymore
Sure could use a friend

The first words she said
Were the last words he heard
He sat at the table feeling the burn
The door slammed behind him
He put his head down
The air turning gray as he started to drown

It’s a rainy Monday again
The leaves are falling from the trees
The wind doesn’t feel like a breeze anymore
Sure could use a friend

Yeah, he hit some hard luck lately
But she was the one begging him for the baby
who’s growing up now
Oh please tell me how to keep anyone happy these days

The fire was dying
The wood wet and cold
Smoke billowed out
He kicked the woodstove

The clock ticked behind him
It never let up
The days became weeks
And the weeks became months

It’s a rainy Monday again
The leaves are falling from the trees
The wind doesn’t feel like a breeze anymore
Sure could use a friend
