Not Today

Alessia Cara

29 Nov 2018


Someday I won't be afraid of my head

Someday I will not be chained to my bed

Someday I’ll forget the day he left

But surely not today

One day I won't need a PhD

To sit me down and tell me what it all means

Maybe one day it'll be a breeze, ah

But surely not today, but surely not today

Oh, you don’t know what sadness means

'Til you're too sad to fall asleep

One day I'll be snoozing peacefully

But surely not today, surely not today

One day I'll swear the pain will be a blip

I'll have the hardest time recalling it

I'll be the king of misery management

But surely not today

One day that song won't make me cry anymore (Oh no no)

One day I’ll get up off the bathroom floor (Hey, yeah)

Oh, piece by piece I’ll be restored

But surely not today, surely not

Eh, not today

Oh, you don't know what happy means

If it’s only in your dreams

I'll be acquainted with my jollities

But surely not today, yeah, surely not today

Surely not-, surely, surely not-

Surely not-, surely not today

One day the thought of him won't hurt the same

Won't need distractions to get through the day

I guess I hope I’m gonna be okay

'Cause I'm not today
