"I Live For The Day" as written by Desmond Child, Andreas Michael Carlsson, Ethan D. Mentzer and Benjamin Joseph Romans....
Iâ??ve got time to watch you spin around in circles
Falling through the cracks inside your mind
Thatâ??s fine
And Iâ??ve been through the darkest hour
Made it to the other side of you
I canâ??t live without you

I live for the day
I live for the night
That you will be desperate and I am inside
I live for the tears to fall down your face
I live for the words you finally say
I live for the day

You are high,
Thinking you're invincible so busy building castles in the sky
Youâ??re done, and you donâ??t even know it
But your eyes have started showing that itâ??s true
Trying to live without love

I live for the day
I live for the night
That you will be desperate and I am inside
I live for the tears to fall down your face
I live for the words you finally say
I live for the day
I live for the day

I canâ??t live without you

I live for the day
I live for the night
That you will be desperate and I am inside
I live for the tears to fall down your face
I live for the words you finally say
I live for the day
I live for the day

Oh I wanna see you crying
Oh I wanna see you crying
Oh I wanna see you crying

I live for the day

    General CommentHaving your ex want you and knowing he can't have you and just watching him be sad about it is a crap feeling... But I guess in the case of him hurting you, and then later realizing how wonderful you are, it's a sweet kind of pain.

    General CommentThis song is about a girl who likes a boy very much.
    she wants to be with him, but she feels like he wont let her or anyone else in.
    she feels that he is like a brickwall of emotion.
    The boy keeps to himself, and is vulnerable about opening up to anyone, because he worries he will just end up getting hurt.
    The girl really wants to help this closed off boy, and feel emotionally close to him.
    She thinks the boy is starting to like and trust her however, and is therefore starting to open up to her.
    This is demonstrated in the line
    "you don’t even know it
    But your eyes have started showing that it’s true
    Trying to live without love.."
    This means that although he's trying to live without love he is starting to weaken, and she can see this in his eyes.

    A very intersting song with strange but meaningful lyrics.

    General CommentThese are wrong.

    I've got time,
    To watch you spin around in circles
    Falling through the cracks inside your mind,
    Thats fine,
    I've been through the darkest hour
    Made it to the other side of you,
    I can live without you

    Chorus
    I live for the day
    I live for the night
    That you will be desperate
    And I am in sight
    I live for the tears
    To fall down your face,
    I live for the words
    You finally say,
    I live for the day

    You are high,
    Thinking you're invincible
    So busy building castles in the sky
    Your done,
    And you don't even know it
    But your eyes have started showing
    That it's true,
    trying to live without love

    Chorus

    I live for the day![2x]
    Oh Oh Oh day!
    Oh Oh Oh

    I can't live without you!

    Chorus

    Oh wanna see you crawlin' [3x]

    I live for the day...
