"One Day" as written by and Bjork Gudmundsdottir....
One day
It will happen
One day, one day
It will all come true

One day
When you're ready
One day, one day
When you're up to it

The atmosphere
Will get lighter
And two suns ready
To shine just for you

I can feel it
I can feel it

One day
It will happen
One day, one day
It will all make sense

One day
It will blossom
One day, one day
When you're ready

An aeroplane
Will curve gracefully
Around the volcano
With the eruption
That never lets you down

I can feel it
I can feel it

And the beautifulness
Fireworks will burn in
In the sky
Oh just for you

I can feel it
I can feel it

One day
One day
One day
One day

    General CommentI think this song is her saying to someone: "Don't worry, one day it will happen, and it'll be worth the wait." To me, it's about finding your true love: "One day it will happen...when you're ready", and it'll be better than ever: "Two suns ready to shine just for you."

    General CommentI always wondered if it was about losing your virginity as in the line 'an aeroplane will curve gracefully around the volcano with the eruption that never lets you down' - surely some metaphors there?!

    General CommentI believe this song is about two eggs colliding making a child in Bjork's etheral mind. It's really a romantic way to believe that that is how we are all born. It's better than thinking a stork dropped you off in front of someone's door!!

    General CommentI agree with Missme.

    To me this song is all about waiting for the "One". They say it happens when you least expect it, when you're confident, your happy and not actively looking.

    For me it's a beautiful song about hope.

    General CommentTo me, this is a song dedicated to an unborn child that hasn't even been procreated yet. She's singing it to a being that, one day, will "blossom", once the soul/Life energy/call-it-whatever-you-want is ready.
    The two suns symbolize the parents. The aeroplane could be seen as something that "delivers" the baby (like the stork is said to do in some cultures), the volcano could be the earth/this world, and the eruption life/passion/love itself.

    That child will be something very special, she (Björk) can feel it.

    My InterpretationOur interpretations are relative based on our lives...

    Mine has to do with how I feel about my overwhelmed, depressed, anxious teenage daughter. "One day, when you're ready... " I actually wrote the lyrics on my daughter's bathroom mirror for her to read whe she's in there. I signed it "Love, Mom & Björk"

    She's left it on there for over a year. It must mean something to her.
