“This is the Day…”

You know that song by The The: “This is the Day”? They use it in the M&M commercials (there is an M&M in everyone — not sure I get the tag line, but I have to admit that I did go on the M&M website and make an M&M that had a vague resemblance)…

Anyway, I was riding home from work and the song came on my iPod. The song gives me hope. Even though I got my period today and my dreams were dashed yet again, for the FOURTEENTH month in a row, the song kicks my spirits into high gear. I got to hang on to something, people.

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
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 your 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 your 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
This is the day your life will surely change
This is the day your life will surely change
This is the day your life will surely change
