"Any day now" as written by and Missy Higgins....
How long, how long, how long will we take to come undone?
If you know the answer tell me now and I'll write up a calendar for our count down.
'Cause what if what we see is all, is all we've got?

Say you've kept some fire aside to set light to me some surprising night.
And say you've locked some fire away to set light to me some surprising day.
To me some surprising day, any day now

How come, how come, how come I'm now on a road holding out my thumb?
If you know my destination please buy me the fastest car and throw me the keys.
'Cause what if what we see is all, is all we've got?

Say you've kept some fire aside to set light to me some surprising night.
And say you've locked some fire away to set light to me some surprising day.

'Cause finger by finger we're losing grasp and
I'm questioning the reason why nothing beautiful does last

Say you've kept some fire aside to set light to me some surprising night.
And say you've locked some fire away to set light to me some surprising day,
To me some surprising dayany day now.

    General CommentThis is about being in a relationship that you know you really shouldnt be in. She's aiting for the guy to blow her away and for things to be great and exciting...maybe the relationship was once fantastic and now it has fizzled out, but she's still waiting for something to happen to get back to that.

    General CommentThese lyrics are dreadfully wrong.
    Missy's most amazing song.
    About wishing and hoping that your significant other has something new to offer to make your relationship how it used to be... to bring something to the table.
    So sad...

    General CommentI heard from someone that knows missy that this song is about being in a realationship with a guy that she thought was too good for her, and all the insecurities that come along with that.

    General Commenti think that this song means that she is in a relationship and she knows that it isnt working out but she doesnt want to belive that. She is waiting for the guy to break up with her "any day now"

    General Commentits the saddest song for me... totally.
    i think its about falling out of love. like suddenly the magic is gone and you get tired of it..
    then ending it soon is the best option.

    General Commenti feel its about realising your just not in the same place in a relationship. and just hoping maybe, there is something more.

    i mean, its pretty straight forward really. i cant imagine there will be many other interperations than that.

    General CommentI think it's about waiting and waiting for the one you love to finally see you, finally treat you the way you want them to. The line "coz what if what we see is all, is all we've got" always makes me shiver. It's so easy to just stay in a relationship waiting for it to get better, not leaving because any day now it will work out. But that line, it's saying that life is so short and if I died today, would it have been enough.
