All you'd show is love
Yet all I'd see is hate
You know that something's wrong
I know I can't relate

Wind is blowing pleasure by
And I don't feel a thing
Emotion fills the sky
Erosion clouds my brain

I can't seem to breathe in
I can't seem to see then
Through the deafening silence of pain
- Left all alone again
Imprisoned by this selfish reign
- with no more rules to bend
I think I'm breaking down

And if I had just one more day
I'd tell you everything
Everything I had to say
I miss you
And if I had just one more day
I'd show you one last thing
Honesty believes in fate
'cause fate is what I've gained

Strength has come and gone
So now I lie in wait
The void is never long
The core belief in fate

I've been down this lonely road
Before I know the way
As situations change
The answers will remain

Now I've got a reason
As time has brought new seasons
To carry me from this pain
- Left all alone again
Living proof of selfless gain
- With no more rules to bend
I think I'm breaking down

And if I had just one more day
I'd tell you everything
Everything I had to say
I miss you
And if I had just one more day
I'd show you one last thing
Honesty believes in fate
'cause fate is what I've gained

Fate is what I've gained!

I've been down this road
The answer's still the same

And if I had just one more day
I'd tell you everything
Everything I had to say
I miss you
And if I had just one more day
I'd show you one last thing
Honesty believes in fate
'cause fate is what I've gained

- and if I had just one more day
Fate is what I've gained
- and if I had just one more day
Fate is what I've gained

And if I had just one more day

    General CommentThis is my favorite Blue-Sky Research song. This is about regret...he's lonely, but he's been down depression before. If he was given another day, he'd give someone else advice to help them avoid what he's fallen into. Fate is what he's gained..I guess it's his fate to be this way. This song is BEAUTIFUL, like myeyesarered said.

    General Commenti think this song is about a loss in some form about a loved one, and when he sings about this he knows he has made a mistake and not told the person exactly how he feels.

    just a great song
