Another Day by Jonathan Larson

Who do you think you are?
Barging in on me and my guitar
Little girl, hey, the door is that way
You better go you know the fire’s out anyway

Take your powder, take your candle
Your sweet whisper, I just can’t handle
Well take your hair in the moonlight
Your brown eyes, goodbye, goodnight

I should tell you, I should tell you
I should tell you, I should, no!

Another time, another place
Our temperature would climb, there’d be a long embrace
We’d do another dance, it’d be another play
Looking for romance? Come back another day
Another day

The heart may freeze
Or it can burn
The pain will ease
If I can learn

There is no future
There is no past
I live this moment
As my last

There’s only us
There’s only this
Forget regret
Or life is yours to miss

No other road
No other way
No day but today

Excuse me if I’m off track
But if you’re so wise
Then tell me, why do you need smack?

Take your needle, take your fancy prayer
And don’t forget, get the moonlight out of your hair
Long ago, you might’ve lit up my heart
But the fire’s dead, ain’t never ever gonna start

Another time, another place
The words would only rhyme, we’d be in outer space
It’d be another song, we’d sing another way
You wanna prove me wrong? Come back another day
Another day

There’s only yes
Only tonight
We must let go
To know what’s right

No other course
No other way
No day but today

I can’t control
Control your temper
My destiny
She doesn’t see
I trust my soul
Who says that there’s a soul?
(My only goal is just to be)
Just let me be

There’s only now, there’s only here
(Who do you think you are)
(Barging in on me and my guitar?)
Give in to love or live in fear

No other path
(Little girl, hey)
No other way
(The door is that way)

No day but today
(The fire’s out anyway)
No day but today
(Take your powder, take your candle)
No day but today
(Take your brown eyes, your pretty smile, your silhouette)
No day but today
(Another time, another place, another rhyme, a warm embrace)
No day but today
(Another dance, another way, another chance, another day)
