Tom's Diner

"Iam sitting the morning
at the diner on the corner
Iam waiting at the counter

for the man to pour the coffee
An the fills it only half way
and before I even argue

He's looking out the window
at somebody coming in
"It's always nice to see you"

Says the man behind the counter
To the woman who has come in.
She's is shaking her umbrella

And I look the other way
As they are kissing their hellos

I'm pretending not to see them
and instead I pour the milk
I open up the paper

There's a story of an actor
Who has died while he was drinking
he was no one I had heard of

I'm turning to the horoscope
and looking for the funnies
When I'm feeling someone watching me
and so, I raise my head

There's a woman on the outside
Does she see me?
No she does not
Cause she sees her own reflection

And I'm trying not to notice
That's she's hitching up her skirt
And while she's straightening her stockings
Her hair is getting wet.

Oh, this rain.It will continue through the morning
As I'm listening to the bells of the cathedral
I am thinking of your voice... and of the midnight picnic
Once upon a time

Before the rain began
I finish up my coffee
It's time to catch the train."

by Suzanne Vega- "Tom's diner"
