Testo della canzone That Day Is Done di Elvis Costello
I feel such sorrow, i feel such shame
I know i won’t arrive on time
Before whatever out there is gone
What can i do, that day is done

It’s just a promise that i made
I said i’d walk in her parade
Hot scalding tears i thought would flow
Still in my heart they’ll never show

That day is done
That day is done
You know where i’ve gone i won’t be coming back
That day is done

Well i recall the time and place
When they announced her precious face
I thought at once my heart would burst
Still every time is like the first

There was applause when she stepped up
I wished that i could interrupt
I made no sign, i made no sound
I know i must stay underground


That’s why she walks, or so they say
She always knew just what i needed
Now if she would just look my way
One time before they proceed

She sprinkles flowers in the dirt
That’s when a thrill becomes a hurt
I know i’ll never see her face
She walks away from my resting place
