Bread - Dismal Day Lyrics

I look into my morning mirror
And it reveals some things to me that I had not been able to see
I saw someone that I'm not sure I want to be
An empty lonely face was starin' back at me

All and all, I would have to say
It's been a rather dismal day

The afternoon was slow in coming
I drug myself outside the face that people that I knew would be there
And though they walked along pretending not to care
I knew behind my back they'd point and laugh and stare

All and all, I would have to say
It's been a rather dismal day

And now the evening shadow's falling
I guess it's best I lay my hopes to rest for noone's calling my name
I sit and wait behind a door that's never knocked on
I live in silence like my phone that's never talked on

All and all, I would have to say
It's been a rather dismal day
All and all, I would have to say
It's been a rather dismal day
All and all, I would have to say
It's been a rather dismal day...

  6. Chip Lovitt

    What a great song! One of Bread's first and best cuts. If anyone thinks David Gates was not a superb singer-songwriter -producerneeds to listen to this song till they do. I wonder who in the LA Wrecking Crew played on this one.

  38. Hans-Jørgen Jægergaard Nielsen

    Sangen "Dismal Day" er fra gruppen "The Bread" første LP fra 1969. Trommeslageren er en studiemusiker, gruppen fik stor succes og så måtte gruppen tage en trommeslager som fast mand

  39. supreme millipede

    That's my favorite part. Plus I looked at your profile pic and imagined a millipede saying "eeeeeeeeeee" and it made me laugh.

    Hi Ruthgee How ya keeping? W

  50. Time Traveling DJs

    There's a brand new book called "It Grew On The Vine 2" that is a total homage to David Gates and Bread. Highly recommended, and at times emotionally hard to read.

  51. Jomar Machado
