Shitty Day (M3)

lyrics

My friend’s dog died
My kids moved town
I don’t have a truck, but I bet it’d break down
I’d like to have sex but my hip got hurt
I’d look on the bright side but my eyes don’t work
Times I wish I would rather be dead
If I had a hammer you could hit me on the head
Singing like crap
and my best friend’s crying
We can’t go on but we gotta keep trying

Welcome to your shitty day
Maybe it’s another shitty day
I’m sorry for your shitty day
If it helps, I’m thinking of you

You are not alone in this painful place
I am holding you so close in my heart
I know you wish you didn’t feel this way
But we can sing the music of the broken parts, hey

My husband’s sick, gassed in a war
Hope had feathers and it flew into a glass door
It’s tough, we’re on a weird diet
I can’t shuffle cards cause he needs the house quiet
His brain got broke so it don’t work straight
He thinks I’m a jerk when in fact I’m great
Complaining’s not fair and blaming’s not true
But I gotta tell someone so I’m gonna tell you

Welcome to your shitty day
Maybe it’s another shitty day
I’m sorry for your shitty day
If it helps, I’m thinking of you

You are not alone in this painful place
I am holding you so close in my heart
I know you wish you didn’t feel this way
But we can sing the music of the broken parts, hey

Welcome to your shitty day

You know I love you
