rise before the sun
we'll leave when it lifts
the show must go on
so we start on the run
buy us meal
or buy us some time
if we want to arrive there

look ahead at the road
you can't see a thing
but maybe we'll make it before it's too late
there is no time to wait

turn, turn on the lights
as they drive by
worked on the side
keep your eyes on the road
hands on the wheel
don't let us slip
this is almost a nightmare

turn, turn on the heat
they can't feel a thing
as i fall asleep
keep your eyes off the white
don't let us die tonight

white days like this i'll never miss
they only come once a year

feel the passing of day
where nothing has changed
night has determined to force us away
buy me a room
with bed and amuse this is almost resourceful
stop, don't hit the breaks
they don't do a thing
we made it to nowhere with no time to spare
no one said life was fair

white days like this i'll never miss
they only come once a year

    General CommentBrett explained at the last salt lake city concert that this song was written when they were on tour between salt lake city and denver....it was very snowy and they had to cancel the denver show because it was to dangerous to drive down in their bus...they barely made it to the SLC show...just 20 minutes before they were supposed to play!

    General CommentTaken literally, Brett's car veers off a cold icy road, possibly with someone else in the car. Look deeper and I think this song tells the story of a loved one who has passed away. The "white day" that comes once a year is the anniversary of that someone's death.
    Or flip it around and this could be a positive song about a couple's anniversary or something along those lines. This song is pretty free to interpretation and I like it that way. It makes your mind wander...

    General Commentfifissofun is completely right as far as i know. I believe they had a lot of chances of getting into a major accident, I think this emotional time of almost death inspired him to write a song about this experience, never the less It's an awesome song! Great vocals, especially live in the Bridge...

    General CommentMy favorite song off of LOVE. TJT is the best rock band out there nowadays. They have so much passion for their music. Thier live show kicks some a$$ too!
