This Is The Day Lyrics - The The

Review The Song (11)



Well... you didn't wake up this morning,
'cause 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 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 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 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 when things fall into place.

This is the day your life will surely change...
(repeat to fade)

Such An Amazing Song | Reviewer: Reviewing: Review | 3/11/11

This is one of those songs that make me wish that I was born 30 years earlier...then again, I wouldn't be able to enjoy songs by Beware of Safety and Otto Dix, either. I'll just have to try and enjoy it all at the same time.



This IS the DAY | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/13/11

I to lived in that era and can relate to the wasted days represented in the song and the DAY everything changed. The past can't be done over and for me that is good because I never want to forget where I've been as it has made me who I am today.



Flashes of my Life............. | Reviewer: Frank | 4/12/10

People sometimes say when you are dying, you have flashes of your life. Will sound kinda silly to say this but if it's true, I hope God plays this great 80's Classic for me as I re-live them one more time. It's such a happy melody yet makes me feel bad for all the bad decisions I've made throughout my 41 year old life. God bless my Soul!!!



This is the Day | Reviewer: love the the | 11/17/08

Agree w/ jacks... well said. I too am 40 and relied on the entire Soul Mining album to get thru high school and college. Now, at 40, the song evokes totally different memories but yes, i think johnson is speaking about those who, to the outside world, have achieved a level of success but on the inside, still feel they should strive for more. like the saying goes, youth is wasted on the young :)



This is the day | Reviewer: JACKS | 1/29/08

This is such a simple and honest song, I'm 40 years old and it makes me nostolgic for my days of youth when anything seemed possible....now I am still optimistic but also realistic...the lyrics are bitter sweet...on one hand the person knows he or she has to change their current life style (which can be anything and allows all listeners to relate to the song), and plegdes each morning "this is the day" but I get the feeling the person does not follow through and thus "this is the day" starts off their day...everyday.....sad but sweet.



different views | Reviewer: anon | 9/19/07

It is fascinating you are so quick to judge. As in life and art what the artist is saying is clear. Yet we should be free to see what we want.
I agree that he is singing about his abuses. But what I see is someone trying to escape from the confines of the cocoon he has created.
You may see gloom in and doom and yet, I see there is still a glimmer of hope. That you can press forward to a new and better tomorrow.



your other reviews sucks ! | Reviewer: frederick smith sedi | 6/16/07

this song is about telling its audience us, that all those nights of drinking and cocaine binging cannot be taken back , and that even though you may be making plenty money, no amount of money will pay or compensate in any way for those wasted days.

It is his own life experecince of being rock musicison & loaded on drugs that has then led him into a life of solitude and all he has left are his photos of old friends and glory days photos,which so like there gone to him.


but what he does have is this song hehas created from this sorrow for us and all the world to share and compare, with our own experiences !

How it fits into the m&m song is beyond me...

come on people learn rock n roll try the transplants for some rawness



I love the song and the M&Ms commercials | Reviewer: rainlily | 6/7/07

Great song! I love how the song and the M&Ms commecials go together. I was going to ask around about the song but I did a google search and found out the title and the band. I remember the band but not the song. :)



What the . . . | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/24/07

This song for some reason makes me want to eat massive amounts of M&M's!



The The - a band underrated. | Reviewer: Bwanna | 2/20/07

This, like SO many The The tunes, helps weave the image into the tapestry of our daily lives. It's a shame their name draws so many a blank look.
