This Is The Day

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

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

It's strange how most people don't understand that this is not a "happy" song. The phrase ...your life will "surely" change... Means something deeper. It's about regret. Matt Johnson's lyrics are amazing! He sings about things that most people feel, but never talk about.

This Is The Day has such a positive vibe to it. I love it! That accordion sounds great too.

Definitely a pretty in pink song. If it's not on the soundtrack, it should be!

For some reason this song always reminds me of John Hughes' Pretty in Pink movie. I think there was a similar sounding song on the soundtrack.

Easily one of the best songs to come out of the entire 80's decade.
