"Ruin My Day" as written by Jon Brion and Jeff Mcgregor....
I know it's today so I guess you could say one recovers
Thought you should call me but then after all we were lovers
I don't wait by the phone like I used to
I don't hope for kind words you might say
You don't prey on my mind like you used to
But you can still ruin my day
You can still ruin my day

You're telling me now you regret how we never connected
Oh as if you forget that it's me you regret you rejected
I don't easily forgive like I used to
And I seldom get carried away
No you don't have the pull that you used to
But you can still ruin my day
Oh you can still ruin my day

Love, it was nothing
It hardly hurt a bit

Sounds good to me but unfortunately I remember it
Now I don't lose my place like I used to
I'm not moved by your ? display
No you can't draw me in like you used to
But you can still ruin my day
You can still ruin my day
You can still ruin my day

You can still ruin my day
I said you can still ruin my day

    and the line is: I'm not moved by your artful display

    General Commenti don't think this song is "morbid"... just straightforward. that point after a breakup when you're getting over it, they call, and you fall apart.

    General Commentline 2 is actually "it's odd you should call me but then after all we were lovers."

    General CommentMiki's got it right, & man o man, do I ever feel this tune in my stomach.

    Heart-wrenching and beautifully honest...and o what a voice.

    General CommentDefinitely a song about a past love who comes out of nowhere one day, years after having last spoken, when he's moved on, and she tears his world back down a little bit, because it throws him back into thoughts of things he thought he'd buried for good. A feeling of confusion that ruins his day, wondering why the hell she decided to contact him after all this time. Wondering what the point is, etc. It's like she doesn't -want- him to move on.
