"One More Day" as written by Steven Dale Jones and Bobby Tomberlin....
Spent the last years
In denial of my grief
Because you hated me
Anyone could see
I'll always wonder
What I meant to you
And why you hated me
What I did to you

I can't get anywhere
Pretending I don't care
Lying to everyone I see
When the only thing I needed was

One more day like yesterday
I'd pick you up, you'd put me down
Wish you were still around
For one more day like yesterday
With you

And in the end
We didn't have a thing to say
Still those games you play
Then you passed away
I'll always wonder
Why you had to leave
Why you hated me
Then laid the blame on me

Cold antiseptic stares
The smell of the sickroom air
Yeah, I let you go down there
The only child
Who never cared about

I'll always wonder
If I could have meant more to you
I'll always wonder
If I could have done more for you
How I could just turn my back
How I could just walk away
How I could just close my eyes
And watch you die

We never got along
We never got a chance
To sing our song of love

I loved my daddy boy
Did you love your boy?
Oh, you feel so warm to me now
But it's cold in this room
Tomorrow they'll put you in the ground
Then there's nothing I can
Ever do to have

    General CommentI think This song is about loving someone and leaving on bad terms. Then finding out the one person who meant the most to you you'll never be able to see again.

    General CommentBill Stevenson says the song was written about his father, who he took in when he was dying and the complicated relationship they had. His dad apparently didn't like Bill or his career choices but by the end they made peace with each other - and then the father passed away and there was never another day to mend their relationships. As someone who lost his father February 2016, the lyrics really hit home. So if your parents are still around, try to make your peace with them because tomorrow they may be dead and you'll be able to do or say anything with them again.
