Monday Morning Stretch - Gina Forsyth

It's a Monday morning and I'm stretching
My imagination to write this song
This is what I'd rather do
Why else would I stay at home
All morning long

And I don't wanna go to work
I never do
And all those other people in the news
Who are out of work
Can trade places with me
Cause when you found that you
Have something better to do
With your life
I guarantee
You'd feel the same way too

My friend and I we spent the weekend
Running from responsibilities
Just like kids we played with crayons
Drawing pictures of our families

I was supposed to be somewhere else
I didn't show
Oh there I go
And all I wanted was to go
So far away
Where no one knows my name
And no one will ever ask
Why I ran away
And where I'm going and how
And where I want to be
Five years or so from now

But just for once I'd like to do
What I feel is right
All because that's how I feel
And with some practice and some time
To follow my heart
Would be no big deal

Oh it's been too many years
Of chasing after a career
And in my bitter tears
I call on my soul and hear
This number has been disconnected
For years

It's a Monday morning and I'm stretching
My imagination to write this song
Oh maybe it's the stretch
That I've been needing my whole life long

And I don't wanna go to work
I never do
But I'll go anyway
Today tomorrow too
Although I know that I have
Better things to do
I'll use this morning
As a step to take me to

Another morning someday
When I will be whole
And I won't hesitate at the door
Of my own soul
And when people ask
Why don't you just grow up
I'll say I tried that
And I had more than enough

And when I'm calling on my soul
I'll hear my own voice say
Yeah, I'm home
Would ya like to come over and play

It's a Monday morning and I'm stretching
My imagination to write this song
