Day off - Kurt Nilsen

I see the morning sun from a window
Not a cloud from a mile or two
Wearing now my slippers when I walk
That's what I'm supposed to do
What is the purpose
What am I doing here
When I ought to be out work
Go around and around in circles of legs
I'm thinking about what hurts

Look ahead
Is this what I wanna do for the rest of my life?
Well that's not right
Look ahead
Does it mean I'm afraid to give it a try
Yeah just a try

I'm taking a sick leave
Forgot to make the call
Just let them know that this is too hard
I can't figure out what I'm gonna say
Cause telling them a lie when I'm in bed anyway
I'm a little scared to ask her to dial the phone
Saying that the fever has got into my bone
I'm swinging like pain when you return my phone
Now it will soon take the day off

Look ahead
Is this what I wanna do for the rest of my life?
Well that's not right
Look ahead
Does it mean I'm afraid to give it a try
Yeah just a try
(day off, day off...)

Keeping a straight face, trying to see real
Enjoy myself, here's the deal
I'm never ever going back again
No no, no way at all
I'm never ever going back again
I gotta be honest with myself
Yeah, I gotta be honest with myself

Look ahead
Is this what I wanna do for the rest of my life?
Well that's not right
Look ahead
Does it mean I'm afraid to give it a try
Yeah just a try
