"Thank You" as written by Paul Herman and Dido Armstrong....
My tea's gone cold, I wondering why I got out of bed at all
The morning rain clouds up my window, and I can't see at all
And even if I could it'd all be grey, but your picture on my wall
It reminds me that it's not so bad, it's not so bad

I drank too much last night, got bills to pay, my head just feels in pain
I missed the bus and there'll be hell today, I'm late for work again
And even if I'm there, they'll all imply that I might not last the day
And then you call me and it's not so bad, it's not so bad and

I want to thank you for giving me the best day of my life
Oh just to be with you is having the best day of my life
Push the door, I'm home at last and I'm soaking through and through
Then you handed me a towel and all I see is you
And even if my house falls down now, I wouldn't have a clue
Because you're near me and

I want to thank you for giving me the best day of my life
Oh just to be with you is having the best day of my life

I want to thank you for giving me the best day of my life
Oh just to be with you is having the best day of my life.

    My InterpretationI've always loved this song and thought of it in terms of a romantic relationship. But listening to it for the first time since graduating from college, it's taken on this new personal meaning. There were so many times, especially in the last year of school, when I got through hard days by knowing that at the end I would be able to go back to my dorm with my roommate and my friends. There were so many times when my friends showed up unexpectedly and completely turned around my day. Even when everything felt like it was crashing around me, having them by my side through it all made it seem bearable. That's what this song now calls to mind for me.

    General Commentthis song now makes me cry like a bitch since my first serious boyfriend and i had this song. now we are not together anymore. i still remember those days though. i still think he has it for me since one day (after us breaking up) when him and i were chillin in the back of our friends car while our friend was driving and controling the radio...that song was just startin but she swiched the station cause its a slow song, but my ex was like "whoa...turn that back on" and i cuddled next to him as it played...and he didnt push me away...weird. i will forever love this song...this is the first song that opened the gates of love for me.
