Vincent Messica


Day Off


A black crow on a post
Gives me the evil eye
As if I am kind of ghost
Or of no use

A blond girl
She looks at me
And in her eyes I see surprise
In another lifetime
I could have been Howard Hughes

Chorus

I took a day off
I need a month off, or even two
I want a year off, but I took a day off
Without you

I walk slowly down the block
Pass the point where someone
Shot down John
In this world
We are born and die alone

You and me we’re doing fine
We work hard
We make some money, but
We don’t have time

You and me we’re doing fine
We work hard
We make some money but
We don’t have …….. time
