Just Another Day Lyrics

 

Just Another Day Song Lyrics


DIANA
They're the perfect loving family, so adoring
And I love them every day of every week
So my son's a little sh*t, my husband's boring
And my daughter, though a genius, is a freak
Still I help them love each other
Father mother sister brother
Cheek to cheek
(spoken)
DIANA
Natalie, it's 4 in the morning, is everything ok?
NATALIE
Everything's great, why wouldn't it be great? It's great!
DIANA
Honey you need to slow down. Take some time for yourself.
I'm going to have sex with your father.
NATALIE
Great, thanks, I'm so glad I know that.
(sung)
NATALIE
So it's times like these I wonder how I take it,
And if other families live the way we do.
If they love each other or if they just fake it,
And if other daughters feel like I feel too.
Cause some days I think I'm dying,
But I'm really only trying to get through
GABE
For just another day, for another stolen hour
When the world will feel my power and obey
BOTH
It's just another day
GABE
Feeling like I'll live forever
NATALIE
Feeling like this feeling never goes away
BOTH
For just another day.
DAN
When it's up to you to hold your house together
A house you built with patience and with care
But you're grappling with that gray and rainy weather
And you're living on a latte and a prayer
DIANA
Prayer
BOTH
Can you keep the cup from tipping
Can you keep your grip from slipping in despair,
For just another day
DAN and GABE
In the hustle and the hurry
DAN
You want to wipe you worry clean away
ALL
For just another day.
DIANA
I will keep the plates all spinning
DIANA and NATALIE
With a smile so white and winning all the way
ALL
Cause what doesn't kill me doesn't kill me
So fill me up for just another day.
DIANA
It only hurts when I breathe.
DAN
It only hurts when I try.
GABE
It only hurts when I think.
NATALIE
It only hurts when I cry.
DAN
It only hurts when I work.
GABE
It only hurts when I play.
NATALIE
It only hurts when I move.
ALL
It only hurts when I say,
It's just another day
(overlapping)
DIANA
A dizzy, dizzy day
GABE
When the morning sun is showing
DIANA
I will hold it all together
ALL
And you wish that you were running far away
DIANA
I will hide the nest away
ALL
It's just another day
DIANA
I will survive another day
GABE
Birds are singing, figs are falling
DIANA
And I will pray to hold on just this day
ALL
And you wish you would be gone
But you'll stay
You'll stay
DIANA
For my family's sake
ALL
For you know it's now or never
DIANA
I'll reap what I can take
ALL
And you know they're gone forever
DAN
Stay
DIANA
I'm only just awake
Every day is just another and another and another
I will hold it all together
We're the perfect loving family
If they say we're not then f**k 'em
The perfect loving family
I will keep the plates all spinning
And the world just keeps on spinning
(spoken)
DIANA
I think the house is spinning.
