   Em              Cm A
do do do do… do do do do…

   Em                                              Cm A
I am sitting in the morning, at the diner on the corner 
   Em                                              Cm A
I am waiting at the counter, for the man to pour the coffee
   G                                               Cm A
And he fills it only halfway, and before I even argue 
   Am                                        C
He is looking out the window, at somebody coming in

It is always nice to see you, says the man behind the counter
To the woman who has come in, she is shaking her umbrella
And I look the other way, as they are kissing their hellos 
I am pretending not to see them, and instead I pour the milk

do do do do…

I open up the paper, there’s a story of an actor 
He had died while he was drinking, it was no one I had heard of 
And I’m turning to the horoscope, and looking for the funnies 
I am feeling someone watching me, and so I raise my head

There’s a woman on the outside, looking inside does she see me
No she does not truly see me, she sees her own reflection
And I’m trying not to notice, that she’s hitching up her skirt and
while she’s straightening her stockings, her hair has gotten wet

do do do do…

Oh, this rain it will continue, through the morning as I’m listening
To the bells of the cathedral 

I am thinking of your voice

do do do do…
