Lady Day

North winds have made my face a little older
And my back is bent through trying too hard
My vest is torn so I make no perfect picture
To place upon your white-washed wall

I'd like to stay but you have not asked me
Still I don't really expect you to
Dusty boots would shame you now, Lady Day
Are we really that far apart

I wish the world could see you now, Lady Day
Laughing down at your oldest friend
The one who shared just about all he had
In a one-sided love affair
I get scared when I remember too much

Wasted time I suppose you could say that
Strange it don't seem that way to me
But wait a minute
I don't even think you're listening

Just let me tell you how I really feel
I've seen the inside of your heart, Lady Day
When you wanted to be shown the way
I loved you then as I love ya now, girl
