One Day Like This
Elbow Lyrics


Drinking in the morning sun
Blinking in the morning sun
Shaking off the heavy one
Heavy like a loaded gun

What made me behave that way?
Using words I never say
I can only think it must be love
Oh, anyway, it's looking like a beautiful day

Someone tell me how I feel
It's silly wrong but vivid right
Oh, kiss me like the final meal
Yeah, kiss me like we die tonight

Cause holy cow, I love your eyes
And only now I see the light
Yeah, lying with me half awake
Oh, anyway, it's looking like a beautiful day

When my face is chamois-creased
If you think I'll wink, I did
Laugh politely at repeats
Yeah, kiss me when my lips are thin

Cause holy cow, I love your eyes
And only now I see you like
Yeah, lying with me half awake
Stumbling over what to say
Well, anyway, it's looking like a beautiful day

Throw those curtains wide!
One day like this a year would see me right
Throw those curtains wide!
One day like this a year would see me right

Lyrics

Drinking in the morning sun
Blinking in the morning sun
Shaking off a heavy one
Heavy like a loaded gun

What made me behave that way?
Using words I never say
I can only think it must be love
Oh, anyway, it's looking like a beautiful day

Someone tell me how I feel
In silly wrong, but vivid right
Oh, kiss me like a final meal
Yeah, kiss me like we die tonight

'Cause holy cow, I love your eyes
And only now I see the light
Yeah, lying with you half awake
Oh, anyway, it's looking like a beautiful day

When my face is chamois creased
If you think I wink, I did
Laugh politely at repeats
Yeah, kiss me when my lips are thin

'Cause holy cow, I love your eyes
And only now I see the light
Yeah, lying with you half awake
Stumbling over what to say
Well, anyway, it's looking like a beautiful day

So, throw those curtains wide
One Day Like This a year would see me right
Throw those curtains wide
One Day Like This a year would see me right
Throw those curtains wide
One Day Like This a year would see me right, for life
Throw those curtains wide
One Day Like This a year would see me right for life

'Cause holy cow, I love your eyes
(One Day Like This a year would see me right) And only now I see the light
(Throw those curtains wide) 'Cause holy cow, I love your eyes
(One Day Like This a year would see me right) And only now I see the light

Throw those curtains wide
One Day Like This a year would see me right
Throw those curtains wide
One Day Like This a year would see me right
Throw those curtains wide
One Day Like This a year would see me right (For life)
Throw those curtains wide
One Day Like This a year would see me right (For life)
Throw those curtains wide
One Day Like This a year would see me right (For life)
Throw those curtains wide
One Day Like Thiss a year would see me right (For life)

Throw those curtains wide
One Day Like This a year would see me right
So, throw those curtains wide
One Day Like This a year would see me right
Throw those curtains wide
One Day Like This a year would see me right

I suffer from depression and anxiety and listening to this song makes me feel uplifted and a bit of optimism.

Clive Lee

Great Joann!
It is a very uplifting song! Just watched Elbow at Glastonbury sing this great song!
Take care!

Charlotte Harrison

Me too.. there’s something about this song that makes me feel so happy. Can’t explain it.

SgtM0le

Everyone has that one power song that can lift them out of the dark. Grab hold of whatever you can to keep afloat as things always get better

Thomas Rigbye

What does optimism mean

2013, I found out I was pregnant, started bleeding. Waited for 4 agonising days for the scan. It showed a healthy heartbeat. I cried so hard, couldn't wait to see my mum to tell her the good news.
As I crossed the road from the hospital, she happened to drive by. She pulled over, as I got in, "one day like this a year would see me right" just played, I cried so hard with joy. That moment, this song, means the world to me. 6 years on. Mum had dementia, but still remembers that day.
