All in a Day's Work (Styx)

She wakes up from a dream, checks the mirror for reality She says "Come on girl, it's all in a day's work" Gets herself dressed just in time, disappears on the 8:05 Oh the whistle blows and it's all in a day's work 'Til she calls it a day Oh she smiles as he glances up from the swimsuit issue Oh she sighs as he walks away into the downtown day Day after day night after night Loneliness creeps in her window She locks the door, turns off the light Rehearsing a kiss on her pillow, she cries It's all in a day's work Turning pages while the memories pass Familiar faces from her senior class How the years go by when it's all in a day's work "Dearest Ruby, hope you reach your star Don't ever change, stay as sweet as you are" And when a teardrop falls she calls it a day's work She calls it a day Oh she waits by the telephone for the call he promised Oh it's late She puts her heart away for another day Day after day night after night Loneliness creeps in her window She locks the door, turns off the light Rehearsing a kiss on her pillow, she cries All in a day's work
