"One Small Day" as written by Christopher Thomas Allen, Warren Reginald Cann, William Currie and Midge Ure....
If the stack is high against you
And the hammer's coming down
And the time that's yours lies heavy in your hands
Oh my sentimental friend
The fast much reach an end

Lying face down on the cold stone
And they give their all to you
But their all is slipping through your hands
Oh my sentimental friend
Your time will come again

Chorus:

One day where I didn't die a thousand times
Where I could satisfy this life of mine
One small day
One day where every hour could be a joy to me
And live a life the way it's meant to be
One small day

How many times has it turned against you
How many times will they walk away
How many times have you let depression win the fight
Oh my sentimental friend
We'll walk as one again

One day where I didn't die a thousand times
Where I could satisfy this life of mine
One small day
One day where every hour could be a joy to me
And live a life the way it's meant to be
One small day

How many times has it turned against you
How many times will they walk away

One day where I didn't die a thousand times
Where I could satisfy this life of mine
One day where every hour could be a joy to me
And live a life the way it's meant to be

One day where I wouldn't feel my senses die
Where nothing made me hang my head and cry
One day where I could see myself as others do
Where I could feel the strength of love at hand

One day where I didn't die a thousand times
Where I could satisfy this life of mine
One day where every hour could by a joy to me
And live a life the way it's meant to be

    General CommentMust confess I really identify with this song, maybe because Ure is Libra like me; it is about the hardness of life and the problems we are always facing; if there could be just a day where we all could live as life seemed to be lived, if we could all agree, obviously impossible, but it's also a chant of hope and oh my sentimental friend your time will come again!!!

    General CommentTo me this is a song about hope against adversity. Better times to come, perhaps in the next life.
    I hum it to myself when things are difficult.
