Because my followers and readers…

…are such wonderful human beings, I figured I’d try to say thank you, somehow.

But Stephen Sondheim is surely a better lyricist than I could ever be, and Bernadette Peters has a voice much better than mine (these days) and so much ‘staying-power’ on the Broadway stage (where I once wanted to be), I decided to present this…and the thanks is from my old heart:

 

Not A Day Goes By

(Stephen Sondheim)

Not a day goes by
Not a single day
But you’re somewhere a part of my life
And it looks like you’ll stay

As the days go by
I keep thinking when does it end
Where’s the day I’ll have started forgetting
But I just go on thinking and sweating

And cursing and crying
And turning and reaching
And waking and dying

And no, not a day goes by
Not a blessed day
But you’re still somehow part of my life
And you won’t go away

So there’s hell to pay
And until I die

I’ll die day after day after day
After day
After day after day after day

Til the days go by
Til the days go by
Til the days go by
