From the recording Look, Listen, & Feel
Leavin' on a Monday (R. Selvaggio)
Leavin' on a Monday, got to be losin' my mind
Leavin' on a Monday now, got to be going this time away
You took my heart from the very start girl, took my heart away
Overcome by your beauty, you left me with nothing to say
Take a look around you now, tell me now what do you see?
Take a look around you now and tell me now how can this be?
Everybody's different, red, yellow, white, black and brown
Don't understand why everybody's putting everybody down
But I truly believe this, well everything comes from within
See my face in the mirror and ask myself what am I doing here?
And I know about the things you gone and told me, but I'm strangled here with fear
And I know about the things you gone and taught me, but I'm too damn insecure
Running from the water now, before I get carried away
Running from the water now, before I go under to stay forever
Never thought about it now, never thought about nothing at all
Not paying attention, just having myself a ball
Well what will you do there with everything dead and gone
Tell me what does it feel like when you're standing there all alone
Leavin' on a Monday, got to be leavin' this town
Leavin' on a Monday now, got to stop hanging around here
Everything is easy, when everything stays the same
What do you think's going on here, this ain't some kind of game called life, called life
