This Is The Day
The The Lyrics


Well you didn't wake up this morning 'cause you didn't go to bed
You were watching the whites of your eyes turn red
The calendar on your wall was ticking the days off
You've been reading some old letters
You smile and think how much you've changed
All the money in the world couldn't buy back those days

You pull back the curtain
And the sun burns into your eyes
You watch a plane flying
Across a clear blue sky
This is the day, your life will surely change
This is the day, when things fall into place

You could have done anything, if you wanted
And all your friends and family think that you're lucky
But the side of you they'll never see
Is when you're left alone with your memories
That hold your life together, like glue

I think that this song is just sad. From the lyrics it seems to be about a very depressed person living in the past and because of this isn't moving forward with their life. "The calender on your wall is ticking the days off" it's not mentioning that the subject of the song is waiting for a particular day I think that the song is just illustrating that the days are going past with not much changing each day.

"But the side of you they'll never see
Is when you're left alone with your memories
That hold your life together, like glue"

I think this really shows how much the person is stuck in the past. The best days are behind them and the happiness that they gain from those memories is the only thing that keeps them going.


The chorus for me is the most depressing part. "This is the day your life will surely change" doesn't give me the impression of upbeat optimism, or a command over their life. There's no decision that they've made to change their life, the "surely" part of the lyrics says to me that they're hoping that some external force will change their life, but it never does and so they're doomed to repeat that hope everyday. Every chorus, every line that says "this is the day your life will surely change" is another day that passed where everything has stayed the same.

I think that the whole song is very depressing and tells us the story of someone who's life will never change because they're too busy thinking about the past and what could have been, "You could have done anything, if you wanted, And all your friends and family think that you're lucky". "This is the day" repeated ad infinitum for the rest of their life because it'll never change, because nothings going to come along and change it for them despite their desperate hopes.

Well, you didn't wake up this morning 'cause you didn't go to bed
You were watching the whites of your eyes turn red
The calendar on your wall
Is ticking the days off

You've been reading some old letters
You smile and think how much you've changed
All the money in the world
Couldn't buy back those days

You pull back the curtains
And the sun burns into your eyes
You watch a plane flying
Across the clear blue sky

This is the day
Your life will surely change
This is the day
When things fall into place

You could've done anything
If you'd wanted
And all your friends and family
Think that your lucky

But the side of you they'll never see
Is when you're left alone with the memories?
That hold your life
Together like glue

You pull back the curtains
And the sun burns into your eyes
You watch a plane flying
Across the clear blue sky

This is the day
Your life will surely change
This is the day
When things fall into place

This is the day (this is the day)
Your life will surely change

I cannot believe it... I finally found this f**king song!

Ever since I was 5 years old, I’ve been trying to search this song... but I literally mean this, I’ve spent over 5.5 thousand days looking for this song. No f**king joke, i’ve spent every single day of my entire childhood and teenage years i’ve been trying to search for this tune. It sounds like i’m over exaggerating, but this is honesty something that has been pounding in the back of my head for over a decade.

Ironically, last month I heard this song played at a pizza shop, and tried to Shazam it, but it was too low to pick it up. Then it played a month later at a coffee roaster shop, and it was loud enough to pick it up on my phone, and I FINALLY FOUND!

My 15 years of searching for this song has finally come to an end, my stress is honestly, and literally no more! I kid you not, i’ve tried remaking the instrumentals, spent years looking up accordion like tunes just to find this song. I’m so relieve... that’s is honestly all I can say. Thank you :,)

I found it dad, the song that came on the radio the neighbor was listening to that time we were sitting on the front porch. I couldn't remember any lyrics until I heard it in a dream about you. It was the first time I felt a real connection with you and it was for some weird random song we accidentally heard. It was also the first time we had a beer together and the first time you put your arm around me and told me you were proud of me. It was all I ever wanted to hear my whole life. It was also the last time I talked to you in person and you were awake. I don't know if you know about me posting this or can read it but it feels good to say it. I miss you.

Great song to remember your dad!
