"Tea and Sympathy" by Janis Ian

A beautiful compilation
(from Phantom of the Opera)
and a beautiful song by one of my favorite
singers of the 70s, Janis Ian.




Tea and Sympathy
I don't want to ride
The milk train anymore
I'll go to bed at nine
And waken with the dawn
Have lunch at half past noon
Dinner prompt at five
The comfort of a few old friends
Long passed their prime.

Pass the tea and sympathy
For the good ol' days long gone
We'll drink a toast to those who most
Believe in what they want
It's a long, long time 'til mornin'
Lays wasted on the dawn
I'll not write another line
For my true love is gone.

When the guests have done
I'll tidy up the room
I'll turn the covers down
And gazing at the moon
I'll pray to go quite mad
And live in long ago
When you and I were once
So very long ago.

Pass the tea and sympathy
For the good ole'days long gone
Let's drink a toast
To those who most
Believe in
what they want
It's a long, long time 'til morning
Lays wasted on the dawn
I'll not write another line
For my true love is gone.

When I have no dreams
To give you anymore
I'll lite a blazing fire
And wait within the door
And throw my life away
"I wonder why?", they all will say
Now I lay me down to sleep
Forever and a day.

Pass the tea and sympathy
For the good ol' days are dead
Let's drink a toast to those who best
surrvived the life they've led
It's a long, long time 'til mornin'
So build your fires high
Now I lay me down to sleep
Forever by your side.

Gosh, no offense but that's a depressing song. I like the one the day before.
