"Snow Day" as written by and Lisa Loeb....
It's a bad day
It's a train ride
It's a bad day
You're my medicine

It's a snow day
It's a full moon
It's a snow day

When'd you get down to my bones?
Where'll I find that wishing stone?
The beads, the records
All the calls, and the drinks alone

First by mind, then by music
You'll make this all less confusing.
It's a slow dive down,
A fast distraction,
A strange fall forward-
My lame reaction.

It's a bad day.
It's a long ride.
It s a bad day.
You're my medicine

It's a sinking feeling,
Pulls me through the seat of chairs.
When will you come rescue me,
Find solace, and then take me there?

You'll say, "You re not too tired for this life,
And it's not gonna matter if you fall down twice.
You're not too tired for this life, and
It's not gonna matter if you fall down twice."

When'd you get down to my bones?
Where'll I find that wishing stone?
The beads, the records,
All the calls, and the drinks alone.

It's a bad day.
2 miles to go.
It's a bad day.
You're my medicine

You'll say, "You're not too tired for this life,
And it's not gonna matter if you fall down twice.
You're not too tired for this life,
And it's not gonna matter if you fall down twice."

You're my medicine.
You're my medicine.
You're my medicine.
You're my medicine.
It's a long ride

    General CommentQuote from Lisa Loeb:

    "I find it sad and uplifting at the same time. It's about having a bad day, but also having something there to make it better in the end. In the phrase "you're my medicine" I use the image of medicine because it's something you can take that will make you feel better. When I was a little girl in Texas, snow days were supposed to be bad things because the city would shut down, but of course we loved them. I especially like singing this because it says, "You're not too tired for this life. It's not gonna matter if you fall down twice." Sometimes you need someone to tell you that it's okay that you're depressed or that you messed up -- even if you've done it before. But you also need someone to shake you out of your weariness. "
