Another Day - Lyrics
1. Come And Gone

(Words and Music by Chris Bergson / CB Band Music - ASCAP)

Well the afternoon’s come and gone
The afternoon’s come and gone
Look out your window
Little world on the ground
The afternoon’s come and gone

Let’s take a drive my baby
Let’s take a drive my baby
Roll down your window
Cast your troubles away
Let’s take a drive my baby

Come and gone
Come and gone

Well the evening’s come and gone
The evening’s come and gone
Spend your life thinkin’
Spinnin’ around
The evening’s come and gone

Come and gone
Come and gone

Well the leaves are falling from the trees
I said the leaves are falling from the trees
Those summer days
we hung our dreams on
Another season’s come and gone

Come and gone
Come and gone

2. High Above The Morning

(Words and Music by Chris Bergson / CB Band Music - ASCAP)

Tired of being pushed around
tired of being passed over
the life I was leading had me down
tired of getting high, but it sure beat being sober

Tired of spending my afternoons alone
just waiting for the phone to ring
if true happiness comes from within
why should I care what some other man thinks
I’ll sing my songs and you fix the drinks
and we’ll get by on love

CHORUS
How I wish I could take you away
High above the morning
I’ll sing my songs and you’ll take to the stage
and we’ll get by on love

We made it through even the longest winter
in our leaky one room flat
and when we get in bed together
nothing seems as bad

CHORUS

Five years since
since the night we met
and I can’t picture our life any other way
pitchers of McSorley’s and the conversation flowing
it was just before Valentine’s day

3. Sweet White Lie

(Lyrics by Chris Bergson and Kate Ross, Music by Chris Bergson)
(CB Band Music - ASCAP / More Mirth Music - BMI)

Thought it would’ve been easier to break through somehow
but the sky has turned a darker shade of blue
the lines of communication are slowly breaking down
and I’m feeling lost this winter afternoon

CHORUS
I would’ve picked a sweet white lie
To cling to by and by
Telling me I’d never part from you
I would’ve picked a sweet white lie
To cling to by and by
It would‘ve beat the truth, I already knew

Watching the gathering clouds from down here on the ground
It’s your voice I hear in the rolling of the wind
Your voice is pounding in my brain so loud
Oh please don’t leave me here when dusk is falling

CHORUS

Now dusk is coming on and I’m standing here alone
I’ve worried this thing through and through
the lonesome evening sounds are falling all around
reminding me I’ll always be without you

4. Greyhound Station

(Words and Music by Chris Bergson / CB Band Music - ASCAP)

Waiting at the Greyhound Station
in some strange town
the man sitting next to me
leathered and weathered brown
he’s spent the last five years
living in his jeans

I used to be something of a songster
the man he said to me
but I got wounded in love and messed up on drugs
now it’s hard to write a good melody

But I’ve been up all night
By the highway side
trying to make my way back home
I got a thermos of whiskey and a lucky wishin’ bon

CHORUS:
Say what you want to say
Do what you want to do with your life
I’m already on my way
But thank you kind people for all your advice
Thank you kind people for all your advice

Now if you’re looking for a window
to the other side
let me recommend Greyhound
as the best place to catch your ride
our coach pulls out of the station
off to some midnight destination
he says, hey man - when we get where we’re going
would ya buy me something to eat?
look at those people, we left them in the dust
stuck in the land of in between
stuck in the land of in between

But I’ve been up all night
by the highway side
trying to make my way back home
I got a thermos of whiskey  and a lucky wishin’ bon

CHORUS

5. Three Sisters

(Words and Music by Chris Bergson / CB Band Music - ASCAP)

The sun was shining
no one was crying
we have come to the burying ground

He left behind
three quarrelling daughters
fussing and fighting
as we laid him on down
I said they were fussing and fighting
as we laid him on down

This family runs deep
with grief and envy
three angry sisters
severed but bound
three angry sisters
severed but bound
I said there were three angry sisters
severed but bound

Bound to each other
in competition
who was the favorite
of this man in the ground?
I said who was the favorite
of this man in the ground?

In the ground
In the ground

7. Another Day

(Lyrics by Chris Bergson and Kate Ross, Music by Chris Bergson)
(CB Band Music - ASCAP / More Mirth Music - BMI)

Running past the South Brooklyn Casket Company
I felt triumphant
Pounding the pavement
Oh, to be in motion
Flying down the street

The doors opened
and I looked in
rows and rows of coffins
waiting there for me

CHORUS
I woke up
Feeling down today
Seeing the caskets gleaming green
Beckoning to me
I think I’ll choose to stay
Here another day
here another day

On that same day
Something in the air changed
the ache of longing
autumn brings

Things left upsopken
Not lost but broken
I wonder what part of me
will be the first to fade away

CHORUS
