"The Day I See You Again" as written by and Steve Hillier....
Walking home from work tonight
Your letter warm, I'm holding tight
Said you want to see me soon
I phoned you late this afternoon

The bar we first met seems alive
I'll see you there at eight tonight
Shouldn't think like this
But is there something in us meeting now?

All this time, I've waited knowing
Though I've changed my heart's still showing

I'll wear a new dress, wash my clothes
I'll wear the earrings that you chose
If the man you've grown to be
Is more Morrison than Morrisey
I'll tell you straight as we undress
That things got better when you left
And though I've banned your name since then
I'll call it with my dying breath

No one else would have me
So I've made this day of all days
The day I see you again

Will you know me, will I cry
Will the years that passed decide that
Even we who loved and lied
Shouldn't meet again tonight

    General CommentPretty self explanatory. A girl get a letter from an old flame. She thinks there may be a chance of getting back together or at least a chance of sex with her ex.

    I love the line:

    "If the man you've grown to be
    Is more Morrison than Morrisey"

    It always makes me laugh. Does her ex look more like Van Morrison than Morrisey these days.

    Beautiful song.

    General CommentThink it's more likely that it's Jim Morrison myself! ;o)

    General CommentThis song is simply amazing!!! It explores a state of being termed "infatuation". It unintentionally exposes our unyielding pursuit of achieving happiness through the conflict of emotion and reason. This tune is purely original, in that it acknowledges the condition of unrealistic expectation of blissful passion without reciprocity. What makes this song truly meaningful is the lyricist's vocal expression and recognition of the unattainable desire, as brilliantly told in the chorus: "All this time, I've waited knowing". Ironic!! This admission unknowingly gifts the remarkable sense of self-realization thereby decompressing the significance of the infatuation.
