"One Day" as written by Peter Gabriel, Anthony Banks, Anthony Edwin Phillips and Michael Rutherford....
Don't get me wrong
I think I'm in love
But the feeling in the word is more
That your crystal eyes will ever see in me
Don't get me wrong
Open your eyes
Although I cannot show my heart
I'll watch and hope
While you are near to me

One day I'll capture you
And call you to my side
One day I'll take you from
The boredom of our lives
One day we'll fly away
To the kingdom of my dreams
One day I'll find myself
And wrap it in my love for you

Birds of the sky
May I borrow your wings
Very soon I'll ask my love
To travel with me to the world outside
Cherry trees, may I borrow your bloom
Very soon I'll ask my love
To come inside the nest I'll build alone

One day I'll capture you
And call you to my side
One day I'll take you from
The boredom of our lives
One day we'll fly away
To the kingdom of my dreams
One day I'll find myself
And wrap it in my love for you

Animal friends
Help me decide
When should I ask my love to leave
I'll beg of you that she'll say yes to me
Breathe in deep
Now is the time
She looks at me and gently smiles
As if she new
I'd ask her all the time

One day I'll capture you
And call you to my side
One day I'll take you from
The boredom of our lives
One day we'll fly away
To the kingdom of my dreams
One day I'll find myself
And wrap it in my love for you

    General CommentThis song is full of such youthful vigour and optimism! I wonder if it could be said that Peter Gabriel has achieved the "Kingdom of his Dreams"? I always get the pictures in my head of a kind of Disney film, where cartoon or CGI Birds and Cherry Trees and fuzzy cute little animal friends are helping our hero decide whether or not to ask his love to come with him and build a nest. Does the singer of this one even have to be a human being? He could be some kind of fox or something...
