Saturday sun came early one morning
In a sky so clear and blue
Saturday sun came without warning
So no-one knew what to do.
Saturday sun brought people and faces
That didn't seem much in their day
But when I remember those people and places
They were really too good in their way.
In their way
In their way
Saturday sun won't come and see me today.

Think about stories with reason and rhyme
Circling through your brain.
And think about people in their season and time
Returning again and again
And again
And again
And Saturday's sun has turned to Sunday's rain.

So Sunday sat in the Saturday sun
And wept for a day gone by.

    General CommentTo me, Saturday Sun is about the good and bad times of life, and how the good times can sometimes pass unnoticed and unappreciated until the bad times are upon you.

    General CommentGreat Song! Well done Nick.
    It feels almost more like a Sunday song to me. This I think is one song that was closest to being well recognised - I remember this was part of the Radio 2 (UK) staple songlist for quite a while.

    General CommentAnother song about living in the moment and not letting life pass you by. Let your family and friends know how much they mean to you. Go after the girl. Pursue meaningful passionate work. Sunday is the period of late years in a regretful person's life that is wishing they would have lived differently.

    General Commentit seems like he had a chance to do something and he didn't pursue it, so the chance was gone.
    you often regret the things you choose not to do rather than the things you do.

    General CommentI absolutely love the xylophone in this. It's so underutilized. The swaying vibe of this song just gets to me. So lovely.
