This is the day.

by The The.

This is one of those songs that if I hear on the radio I must listen to all the way through - even if that means sitting in the driveway (I stole that idea from National Public Radio) till it's over or driving around the block again.

Fortunately I only have a few of them. (Short list off the top of my head: Can't you hear me knocking? and Sympathy for the Devil by the Stones, Loan me a dime by Boz Skaggs with Duane Allman, Milky Way by The Church, Home of the Brave by The Nails, Come as you are by Nirvana and Ship of Fools by World Party.)

This is the day:

Well... you didn't wake up this morning
Because 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
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 bring 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 -- Your life will surely change.
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
