CHER lyrics - This God-Forsaken Day

CHER
"This God-Forsaken Day"

Read your note this morning
Bye-bye girl that's all it said
Glad I found it first
Before the kids got out of bed
Baked a tray of muffins
Hung some wet wash out to dry
By the time the kids got up
I could look them in the eyes

[Chorus:]
You've gone away
You've gone away
How will I get through the day
This God-forsaken day

Drank some bitter coffee
Read your note ten times or more
When I had washed the dishes twice
I got down and scrubbed the floor
Empty chair at supper
Everybody's acting strange
All the food just getting cold
The kids real quite for a change

[Chorus]

Rain was falling hard
As I walked slowly up the stairs
Pushed my tears back down
As I stood listening to their prayers
There's you empty pillow
Your side's flat right to the wall
Now's the time for cry, but crying
Now it hurts me most of all

You've gone away
I turn off the light
How will I get through the night
This God-forsaken night
This long and lonesome
God-forsaken night
