"A Perfect Day" lyrics - LOUDON WAINWRIGHT III

"A Perfect Day"

When you come to the end of a perfect day
And you sit alone with your thought
While the chimes ring out with a carol gay
For the joy that the day has brought

Do you think what the end of a perfect day
Can mean to a tired heart?
When the sun goes down with a flaming ray
And the dear friends have to part


Well this is the end of a prefect day
Near the end of a journey too
But it leaves a thought that is big and strong
With a wish that is kind and true

For memory has painted this perfect day
With colors that never fade
And we find that the end of our perfect day
The soul of a friend we've missed
