ONE DAY

On the one day that you were happy
You were beautiful, your hair blew in the breeze
And love shone from your eyes
And joyous laughter danced through perfect teeth

On the one day you finally made it
You hadn't a care in the world
Except that this may be the top of the mountain
And all the time before
You were looking forward
All the time since
You've been looking back

On the one day you finally got there
Your life, it was so complete
And you had the nerve to even question
If this was where you should be

And you didn't once think about the moment
You lived in fear of what was coming next
And you couldn't understand why no one was clapping
And all the time before
You were looking forward
All the time since
You've been looking back

Think I'm gonna take a long vacation
Think I'm gonna ride out underneath the stars
Find a place so dark I can't even see my hand
Despite the light from Jupiter and Mars
And maybe when I get there I'll be able to let it be
And be happy with the way things are
But I know myself, and I ain't holding my breath
Waiting for the best day of my life
Maybe this is the best day of my life

And all the time before
I was looking forward
All every minute from here on after
I'l be looking back
