This Is Monday Morning

from PURPLE HEARTS by Stephen Bard



This is Monday morning
This is Tuesday night
This is Wednesday afternoon
We’re all just trying to get it right
This is Thursday evening
Friday dusk, this much is true
Saturday and Sunday I just want to be with you

But this is Monday morning and you’re headed off to work
Still trying to understand why your boss is such a jerk
But who knows what he’s been through?
Who knows what he’s lost?
I’m guessing something heavy
‘Cause every Tuesday night he’s sauced down at the corner bar
In the gap between what we want to be
And what we really are
The joke is every day if we got out of our way
We could shine just like a star


But this is Wednesday afternoon and you’re headed for the gym
My grandpa Jerome’s in the nursing home
And Thursday evenings I go see him
Friday it's a movie, maybe a ballgame or a show
Whatever you got in mind, sweetheart
You know I'm down to go
'Cause I don’t give a damn
In the gap between what I want to be
And what I really am
The joke is every night if I stepped into the light
I just might be the jam
But this is Monday morning

You know I’m just trying to live my life and enjoy it while I’m here
Every day of every week, every month of every year
