Once Blue — I Haven't Been Me lyrics

Another sunny Sunday morning
Finds me inside
The shadows and light
Pass through the empty hallway
I gave my best Mahalia Jackson
But nobody cared
No round of applause acknowledging I was there
{It's been a while since painting a smile
I welcome them in and sing
"It Don't Mean a Thing"
I haven't come clean
I haven't been me}
I closed my eyes and tried to find the song
Where did it go?
Somewhere below the cloud of cigarette smoke
But after all it's only time
I think I would begin from here
If once in the mirror
I felt there was someone there
{chorus} . . .
