"A Day" as written by Inara George and Michael Andrews....
Give me something to laugh about
All this tenderness will wind me up.
You won't come Independence Day
To watch the arrows fly so aimlessly

What has come to me?
When I have watched the universe
The discovery
That everyone
Gets common
So strange
And perfect again

A life is full, a perfect form
Still we carry it hard in our arms
I've memorized the way of things
I'll keep you around with remembering

Everyone has moments like these
I don't want to talk about it
What can I say to you
When there's nothing to say
I will find all the reasons
And kill all the good ones
But time, after it all
It will be fine.

With every rush of blood that comes
When the sum of you could hide the sun
I'll put it all away today
To watch the arrows fly so aimlessly

    General CommentThere's a story in this song.
    Our speaker (a very thoughtful one, from the looks of "when I have watched the universe") lives a "perfect" life, one where she cannot "watch the arrows fly so aimlessly." They also have a person near and dear to them, but can only keep them around "with remembering."

    A turning point comes with the lines "every one has moments like these." The instrumentation takes a different turn.
    A male voice starts to join in with "What can I say to you when there's nothing to say?" and ends at "it will be fine."
    Then a short, beautiful instrumental with piano~

    We then go back to the more laid-back tune as before, but our speaker has changed for the better: "I’ll put it all away today, to watch the arrows fly so aimlessly." Finally, they've loosened up! =D
