  • Lyrics: She sat right down with a look in her eyes that said?“I’m not getting up till I finish,?‘it’s only a puzzle in the Sunday paper but there’s something different about this one”??Now what is the feeling that will mess up your mind whenever it appears?It’s got four letters and an “e” in it, too. Is it Love or is it Fear???Three across intersecting that – five letters and a dipthong?It’s the feeling that you get when you go to church and they sing those old, old songs?With all the “hallelujah” and “to thee I pray”?Well is it doubt we feel? Or is it faith??I don’t want to get it wrong…??Chorus:?“it’s so complicated,” she said?“trying to figure this all out on a Sunday”?“what kind of mind created,”she said?“a Sunday crossword puzzle with no right answers?”??Now number four down is only one letter – it’s the third in three across?Same problem here that I had before. I might as well just toss?A coin?Is it “I” or is it “U”??The clue just says,?“someone you should love more than you do??rpt chorus??well, she finished the puzzle and nothing changed?she still had to feed her goldfish?and Monday morning the alarm woke her up, and that did not stop her wishing?for another ten, ?but opened up her eyes and then the crossword puzzle that she tacked to the mirror?reminded her of that song she’d never sing again:?
