A free afternoon

An afternoon no working. So I had lunch with my colleagues in the canteen and went home. No hurry. It was not a nice day today: raining, cold and of course gray. This kind of weather makes people like me feel bored and sad easily. (Actually, I was sad and a bit bored.) Luckily, it is going to end soon. I tried to have a nap at 1.45 but failed. Some friends of my father-in-law's came and made a noise. It was 3 o'clock. Time to get out of the bed. I turned on the computer and listened to music. I can't stop that habit: listening to music while at the desk. Drinking coffee, checking email and reading blogs. One of my friends who thinks that I have a good knowledge of grammar asks me to read and make suggestions. No problem. It is also a good exercise for me: checking my own knowledge and learning something new about somebody else's life.
Now I am listening a song by Roxette. A nice song. It is from the music file my friend gave to me.

Spending my time

What's the time?
Seems it's already morning.
I see the sky, it's so beautiful and blue.
The tv's on but the only thing showing
Is a picture of you.

Oh I get up and make myself some coffee.
I try to read a bit but the story's too thin.
I thank the lord above
You're not here to see me in this shape I'm in.

Spending my time,
Watching the days go by.
Feeling so small,
I stare at the wall,
Hoping that you think of me too.
I'm spending my time.

I try to call but I don't know what to tell you.
I leave a kiss on your answering machine.
Oh help me please,
Is there someone who can make me
Wake up from this dream?

Spending my time,
Watching the days go by.
Feeling so small,
I stare at the wall,
Hoping that you are missing me too.
I'm spending my time,
Watching the sun go down.
I fall asleep to the sound
Of tears of a clown,
A prayer gone blind.
I'm spending my time

My friends keep telling me:
Hey, life will go on,
Time will make sure
I'll get over you.
This silly game of love
-You play, you win only to lose.

I'm spending my time,
Watching the days go by.
Feeling so small,
I stare at the wall,
Hoping that you think of me too.
I'm spending my time.

I'm spending my time,
Watching the sun go down.
I fall asleep to the sound
Of tears of a clown,
A prayer gone blind.
Im spending my time.
