~ This Is The Day ~

I have always loved THE THE, since the 80's. I have most of their stuff, love it all. Such a unique voice and song arrangements/structure.

I was shocked when I heard THE THE on (of all things) a recent Docker's commercial!

This song pretty much sums up how I feel right now. Aunt Flow is in town and I am not happy. She hurts me.


~ THIS IS THE DAY ~


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 a 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 you're 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 a 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 -- Your life will surely change.
(repeat to fade)
