Rain Parade – This Can’t Be Today

Don’t know if it’s nice today,
I don’t go out much any more these days.
Didn’t care for the things you said
but they just don’t seem to leave my head.
Last night I saw a little girl fly,
but she couldn’t look me in the eye.
Strained to laugh but I had to cry.
I never thought I could ask her, “Why?”
If this is all a dream, well,
it won’t go away.
I only want to sleep.
This can’t be today.

An old favorite.
