Not Today


No one's there for me

I vent, I cry out, I try to explain

But the only response I receive

Is the augmented fourth in the cricket's eerie song


Nothing seems all right

You don't even try, try, try to explain

For the only response I receive

Is okay


Tell me something encouraging

Don't tell me I was overreacting

I was not out of line tonight

I wouldn't take back a single word I said


On any other day, you would've cared

At any other moment, you would've helped

Stood up for me just when I needed it

But no, not today

Just not today


Oh I'm so sorry

Did I do something to make you distant?

Make the only response I receive

A nervous silence


Tell me I was perfectly right

To stand up and fight for something I

Believe in with all of my heart

I wouldn't take back a single word I said


On any other day, you would've cared

At any other moment, you would've helped

Stood up for me just when I needed it

But no, not today

Just not today


Tell me something encouraging

Don't tell me I was overreacting

I was not out of line tonight

I wouldn't take back a single word I said


On any other day, you would've cared

At any other moment, you would've helped

Stood up for me just when I needed it

But no, not today

Just not today
