Another friend is worried that she'll lose her job.  The economic news just keeps getting worse. These songs come to mind.

"Pouring Water on a Drowning Man"  James Carr  
Dave Marsh wrote that Carr "makes you feel every drop of the inundation metaphor."  I can't describe it any better than that.

"I'm A-Tellin' You"  Jerry Butler
The lyrics say it all: 
                                I got up, I go to work
                                I try real hard to do my job
                                But before the day is done
                                I find out I done something wrong

                                Days are getting longer 
                                And my nights are getting shorter
                                And my way gets softer
                                And my work gets harder 
                                
                                Now in everything I do
                                I'm trying hard to make one dream come true
                                And maybe someday, Lord, I'll find 
                                Satisfaction and peace of mind  
 

I hope that we all can find some satifaction and peace of mind.
