Lady Day Lyrics

by Frank Sinatra

Her day was born in shades of blue
Her song was sad, the words were true
Her morning came too fast, too soon
And died before the afternoon

Poor lady day could use some love, some sunshine
Lady day has too much rain
Poor lady day could use some spring, some breezes
Lady day has too much pain

It's such a lonely face, such a cloudy sky
So many shadows in her eye, so many empty dreams
So many bitter times, just a handful of broken rhymes

Poor lady day could use a smile, some kindness
Lady day has too much rain
Poor lady day could use some dreams, some flowers
Lady day has too much pain

Just too much to say, just to much to know
Too little time to say hello, and then the evening comes
And now she doesn't cry, and it's too late to say
Good-bye
