Sad New Day
by Wilfred Kozub

You tried to let misunderstanding fade,
But she remembers everything you said over a year ago
You wish that she would let you in her head
You never thought you?d never get her back

Another morning nothing has been said
Nothing on the telephone to write no one at home about
You wonder, then, must everyone be dead?
You remember how at first she fell for you (just like a moonie)

She said she?s got a better brand new life
She said she?s doing everything she wants whenever she gets a call
She always said that life with me was trite
I guess that life must be perfect after all

Oh, what a sad new day
Oh, what a sad new day
Oh, what a sad new day
Sad new day

She missed the subtle signals I?d disguise
The clever things I always said for her, she never could realize
She?d second guess the pleasure in my eyes
She even missed the shuttle landing (twice)

Oh, what a sad new day
Oh, what a sad new day
Oh, what a sad new day
Oh, what a sad new day
