A Jeff Buckley Kind Of Day

lyrics

Because you know that it was really a Jeff Buckley kind of day
The sky covered the city in that pretty kind of gray
I saw you on the corner and I thought I heard you say,
“Hey, don’t I know your silly face from somewhere?”
I said, “Yes, I do believe indeed that I remember you
With the pebble on your shoulder and the devil in your shoes.
Tell me, are they still dancing up a storm down at Kanga Roo’s?”
You said, “I’ll be there tonight, why don’t you come there?”

And I knew right away that you would break my heart
All the minutes of the day that you would break my heart
Yes I knew right away that you would break my heart
And I stayed anyway

Because you know that it was really a Jeff Buckley kind of day
As we walked along, I said, “I wish I’d seen him at Sine.
And I know it might sound strange but I’ll say it anyway -
Almost every day at some point I think of him.”
You said, “It’s awesome when someone like that gets inside your soul -
And I know he’s only human and it’s only rock and roll.
But to hear that voice and stare into those lonely eyes of coal…
How could you do anything but love him?”

And I knew then and there that you would break my heart
Completely fair and square that you would break my heart
Yes I knew then and there that you would break my heart
And I stayed anyway

When I got to Kanga Roo’s, there was an air about the place
I had to catch my breath the moment that I saw your face
We slow danced as the DJ played the third song from Grace
And when it ended, you kissed me like you meant it
Now a month has passed, there's been no sign of you in my life
“So Real” inside my head, this crazy dream you’d be my wife
The pain is somewhere in between a safety pin and butter knife
But there’s no way I ever could resent it

‘Cause I knew all along you would break my heart
No matter right or wrong that you would break my heart
Yes I knew all along that you would break my heart
And I stayed anyway

Because you know that it was really a Jeff Buckley kind of day
