"Sunday Afternoon" as written by and Gitelman/martinez....
Sunday afternoon
You won't be perfect
You won't be pure
And Monday asking you
Why did you, how could you play me for the fool

Oh, there's no simple answer
Oh, there's no reason at all

Must have been a beautiful daydream
You didn't come home till three
Must've been a hell of a joyride
You didn't once think of me
Must have been a lot of people
Saying you took more then you gave
But what do you take to take the pain away

I turned to find the truth
The closer I got the farther I got from you
Cause I burned myself on you
How could you, why did you play me for a fool

Oh, there's no simple answer
Hey there's no reason at all

Must have been a beautiful daydream
You didn't come home till three
Must've been a hell of a joyride
You didn't once think of me
Must have been a lot of people
Saying you took more then you gave
But what do you take to take the pain away
And what do you take to make it all go away

You tore every stich
You bait and you switch
You told me you'd change
You'd change everything
Everything

Come chase away the blues
Of the gloom of my room

Oh, there's no simple answer
Oh, there's no reason at all
And I know I got no simple answer
Hey, I'm not blaming you all

Must have been a beautiful daydream
You didn't come home till three
Must've been a hell of a joyride
You didn't once think of me
Must have been a lot of people
Saying you took more then you gave
But what do you take to take the pain away
And what do you take to make it all go away
And what do you take to take the pain away
And what do you take to make it all go away

I've heard your having the time of your life
Wish you were here
Having it with me tonight
Everything would be alright
Come on, come on help me make it through the time
Oh, the time of your life
