"Today Is The Day" as written by and Ira David Kaplan Georgia Mia Hubley....
I followed you foolishly
You were at a smoky bar, you were out til three
Sat alone inside my car, it was nearly four
We were gonna wait for you all night
So I locked the door

I was gonna spend the night, coulda been okay
We were gonna talk all night, till I went away
Remember how you used to say, can't stay up late
A minute later we're older now, I can't stay awake
I'm driving by your parent's farm, in the Chevrolet
I remember that rusty car, like it was yesterday

Saw my brother driving by, the other day
I wished that I'd go out to him, but he drove away
Saw my sister standing there, standing in rain
Then I thought about nothing, that it feels the same

Another day, come and gone
Don't think I can ever sing that song
Little secrets we bring along
I'm taking my time, trailing behind, I thought of you
Today is the day I think of you

    General CommentOne morning I woke up and I heard a voice whisper into my mind, "you're going to meet him today" so I put on this song. Sure enough I met someone later that day and we exchanged numbers. We dated for two months (my first time dating) but it didn't work but we ended up being really good friends (he's one of my best friends now actually). However, when I look at the lyrics I think it's about a breakup and one of the people in the relationship always remembers that person on a specific day...maybe their anniversary or maybe their break up date...or another important day of theirs...
