Song Of The Day

Today's Selection is...

“Beautiful Day” from All That You Can‘t Leave Behind.

The sun is shining, the skies are blue, and, unbelievably, my favourite song ever is actually playing on the radio. Yep, Beautiful Day. This song just makes me ecstatic. First heard it on a beautiful day three years ago, on a class trip to North Carolina, and ever since, it’s been… my favourite song ever. I was so disappointed when I first saw the video to this song; I was expecting trees and blue sky and things like that, and instead, saw two random people making out in an airport. So disappointing. And yes, I did make an icon to fit my view of the song. Hee.

But man, this is a brilliant song.

The heart is a bloom, shoots up through stony ground
But there's no room, no space to rent in this town
You're out of luck and the reason that you had to care
The traffic is stuck and you're not moving anywhere
You thought you'd found a friend to take you out of this place / Always
Someone you could lend a hand in return for grace / Always

It's a beautiful day / (Day) Down
Sky falls, you feel like it's a beautiful day / (Day) Down
Don't let it get away / (Day)

You're on the road but you've got no destination
You're in the mud, in the maze of her imagination
You love this town even if that doesn't ring true
You've been all over and it's been all over you

It's a beautiful day / (Day) Down
Don't let it get away / (Day) Day
It's a beautiful day, woo hoo hoo / (Day) Down, (Day) Down

Touch me, take me to that other place
Teach me love, I know I'm not a hopeless case

See the world in green and blue
See China right in front of you
See the canyons broken by a cloud
See the tuna fleets clearing the sea out
See the bedouin fires at night
See the oil fields at first light
And, see the bird with a leaf in her mouth
After the flood all the colours came out
(Day) Down
(Day) Day

It was a beautiful day / (Day) Down
Don't let it get away / (Day) Day
Beautiful day / (Day) Down, (Day) Down

Touch me, take me to that other place
Reach me, I know I'm not a hopeless case

What you don't have you don't need it now
What you don't know you can feel it somehow
What you don't have you don't need it now
You don't need it now, don't need it now
Was a beautiful day
