"Krafty" as written by and Bernard (gb 2)/hook Sumner....
Some people get up at the break of day
Gotta go to work before it gets too late
Sitting in a car and driving down the road
It ain't the way it has to be

But that's what you do to earn your daily wage
That's the kind of world that we live in today
Isn't where you want to be
And isn't what you want to be

Give me one more day (one more day)
Give me another night (just another night)
I need a second chance (second chance)
This time I'll get it right (This time I'll get it right)

I'll say one last time (one last time)
I've got to let you know (I've got to let you know)
I've got to change your mind (I've got to change your mind)
I'll never let you go (I'll never let you go)

You've got to look at life the way it oughta be
Looking at the stars from underneath the tree
There's a world inside and a world out there
With that TV you just don't care

They've got violence, wars and killing too
All shrunk down in a two-foot tube
But out there the world is a beautiful place
With mountains, lakes and the human race
This is where I want to be
And this is what I want to do

Give me one more day (one more day)
Give me another night (just another night)
I need a second chance (second chance)
This time I'll get it right (This time I'll get it right)

I'll say one last time (one last time)
I've got to let you know (I've got to let you know)
I've got to change your mind (I've got to change your mind)
I'll never let you go (I'll never let you go)

Just give me one more chance (one more chance)
Give me another night (just another night)
With just one more day (one more day)
You know I'll get it right (You know I'll get it right)

I'll say one last time (one last time)
I've got to let you know (I've got to let you know)
If I could change your mind (If I could change your mind)
I'll never let you go (I'll never let you go)

    General CommentI love this song,but I love its video even more. Have you ever seen it?It shows youth and love and friendship and sweet sex all at once and I think it's amazing. It leaves you a warm sensation of life flowing through you and it keeps you smiling and wanting to run,hand in hand with the one you love,among fields under a sunny sky.

    General CommentI adore this song. It's a great summation of the way it is right now.. I mean, I'm grateful for my house, but the American dream, paying a mortgage, working 40+ hours a week, all the propaganda on CNN & FOX.. This song is GOOD..

    General Commenti thinks this song is the happiest song I've heard for ages and ages, it's best listened to while you're drinking diet coke and staring at the sunshine

    General CommentI’m not so sure this song is about breaking up as much as it’s about just wanting to live, to enjoy life, and to set things right. I never saw it as pessimistic. I do think the guy is a bit desperate, but I don’t think his desperation is a bad thing. I agree with Jinxx that he’s trying to convey that life is meaningless without love—love for your partner, your family, life going on around you. I always saw the song as optimistic and full of hope. Maybe I just found it comforting that I could relate to it so easily and that’s where I found the optimism and hope. I don’t know, but this is my favorite song. I can’t ever feel completely down when I listen to it.

    General CommentAny song that makes me want to dance, or think that I can dance, has got to be great. This is seriously one of the most uplifting and genuinely joyus tunes that I have ever heard. The lyrics acknowledge and reinforce all that is bad and good in the world. This song makes me feel happy, and makes me feel united with mankind in this journey through life.

    General Commentalso I agree with "sweet jane" the video to this song is great. Makes me feel young again-reminds me of the days that have passed for me but leaves me with optimistic feelings for the future.
