Not A Day Goes By

Last night PBS showed the (80th) birthday concert Broadway put on for Stephen Sondheim. What a treat to hear many of his songs from different musicals.

Here's a song sung by Bernadette Peters (not from the concert but a version I found on YouTube) Not a Day Goes By from the musical "Merrily We Roll Around."

What a genius. I am utterly speechless, crying crying crying like a baby.
Not a day goes by
Not a single day
But you're somewhere a part of my life
And it looks like you'll stay
As the days go by
I keep thinking when does it end
Where's the day I'll have started forgetting
But I just go on thinking and sweating

And cursing and crying
And turning and reaching
And waking and dying
And no, not a day goes by
Not a blessed day

But you're still somehow part of my life
And you won't go away
So there's hell to pay
And until I die
I'll die day after day after day
After day
After day after day after day
Til the days go by
Til the days go by
Til the days go by
