Paul McCartney That Day Is Done Lyrics

Last updated: 02/17/2014 10:56:27 AM

By Paul McCartney and Declan MacManus

I FEEL SUCH SORROW, I FEEL SUCH SHAME.
I KNOW I WON'T ARRIVE ON TIME
BEFORE WHATEVER OUT THERE IS GONE.
WHAT CAN I DO?
THAT DAY IS DONE.

IT'S JUST A PROMISE, THAT I MADE,
I SAID I'D WALK IN HER PARADE.
HOT SCALDING TEARS I THOUGHT WOULD FLOW,
STILL IN MY HEART, THEY'LL NEVER SHOW.

THAT DAY IS DONE, THAT DAY IS DONE,
YOU KNOW WHERE I'VE GONE,
I WON'T BE COMING BACK,
THAT DAY IS DONE.

WELL, I RECALL THE TIME AND PLACE
WHEN THEY ANNOUNCED HER PRECIOUS FACE.
I THOUGHT AT ONCE MY HEART WOULD BURST,
STILL, EV'RY TIME IS LIKE THE FIRST.

THERE WAS APPLAUSE WHEN SHE STEPPED UP,
I WISH THAT I COULD INTERRUPT.
I MADE NO SIGN, I MADE NO SOUND,
I KNOW I MUST STAY UNDERGROUND.

BUT THAT DAY IS DONE, THAT DAY IS DONE,
YOU KNOW WHERE I'VE GONE,
I WON'T BE COMING BACK,
THAT DAY IS DONE.

THAT'S WHY SHE WALKS, OR SO THEY SAY,
SHE ALWAYS KNEW JUST WHAT I NEEDED.
NOW IF SHE WOULD JUST LOOK MY WAY
ONE TIME BEFORE THEY PROCEED.

SHE SPRINKLES FLOWERS IN THE DIRT,
THAT'S WHEN A THRILL BECOMES A HURT.
I KNOW I'LL NEVER SEE HER FACE,
SHE WALKS AWAY FROM MY RESTING PLACE.

THAT DAY IS DONE, WELL, THAT DAY IS DONE,
YOU KNOW WHERE I'VE GONE,
I WON'T BE COMING BACK,
THAT DAY IS DONE.

WELL, YOU KNOW WHERE I'VE GONE,
I WON'T BE COMING BACK,
THAT DAY IS DONE.

UH -.

Paul McCartney is the Father of the Ballad. This is by far my favorite song from his 1989 Flowers in the Dirt album. It is raw McCartney, at the piano with his band, wistfully and soulfully singing about the "one who got away." At least, that's how I INTERPRET it.
And just like his Beatle years, Paul continues to write the soundtrack to our lives.
