Dan Bern - Live Another Day

Song Lyrics

Sometimes I walk and wish LA
Was some small town near Monterey
I close my eyes and ask the gods
To make those Cadillacs dusty dogs
I close my eyes and live
I close my eyes and live another day

Sometimes I think I'll melt away
And in the sidewalk cracks I'll stay
And who will notice, who will call
Whose life would change much if at all
I close my eyes and live
I close my eyes and live another day

Another day so far from the farms where I grew up
Another day, another day,
Another day so far from that single pair of eyes
That speak to me of home
Not another night alone

Another day is done
I lay my eyes to rest
There is food, I got a bed
There's a roof over my head

Sometimes I think that everyone
Really speaks a foreign tongue
Like I say X and you hear Y
But I push these thoughts from my mind
And close my eyes and live
I close my eyes and live another day

I close my eyes and live
I close my eyes and live another day
