Another Tricky Day for You~

…Only one Townshend tune makes this message convincing, and it’s the LP’s best. In “Another Tricky Day,” the constant shifts of melodic focus – a rhythm guitar unraveling here; a rumble of bass, a quick harmony or swatch of rippling keyboards there – express the song’s life-goes-on theme. The changes of mood from line to line – rebellious, fatalistic, confident, worried – are all held together by the chorus: “This is no social crisis. . . Just gotta get used to it.” With its carefully modulated dynamics and Daltrey’s finest singing, “Another Tricky Day” approaches perfection, effortlessly achieving the calm within the storm that most of the record strains for. ~ ROLLING STONE (By  May 14, 1981)

dievca is navigating, negotiating, wiggling her way through Life.
she’s putting up with baloney which is supposed to change, but it doesn’t~
The WHO is stating her Life experiences…
(In a nutshell: watch out for that minefield)

You can’t always get it
When you really want it
You can’t always get it at all
Just because there’s space
In your life it’s a waste
To spend your time why don’t you wait for the call

We all get it in the end
(Just gotta get used to it)
We go down and we come up again
(Just gotta get used to it)
You irritate me my friend
(This is no social crisis)
This is you having fun
(No crisis)
Getting burned by the sun
(This is true)
This is no social crisis
Just another tricky day for you

You can always get higher
Just because you aspire
You could expire even knowing.
Don’t push the hands
Just hang on to the band
You can dance while your knowledge is growing

You can’t expect to never cry
(Patience is priceless)
Not when you try to fly so high
(Just stay on that line)
Rock and roll will never die
(This is no social crisis)

Another tricky day
Another gently nagging pain
What the papers say
Just seems to bring down heavier rain
The world seems in a spiral
Life seems such a worthless title
But break out and start a fire y’all
It’s all here on the vinyl
(No crisis)

You can’t always get it
When you really want it
You can’t always get it at all
Just because there’s space
In your life it’s a waste
To spend your time why don’t you wait for the call

Gotta get used to waiting
(Just gotta get used to it)
You know how the ice is
(Just gotta get used to it)
It’s thin where you’re skating
(This is no social crisis)
Just another tricky day for you fella
