"One Fine Day" as written by and Robbie Williams....
I like to reminisce about a time I've never had
A book that no-one read
A film that never made me sad
And you remind of a place I've never been

And something no-one said
When I was 17
One fine day
In the middle of the night

You'll wake up in it
One fine day
In the middle of the night
But you probably won't admit it

Remember when we never struggled through?
A bad time we never had
A love we never fell into
Please don't remind me to forget

'Cause forgiveness is a place
I ain't got used to yet
One fine day
In the middle of the night

You'll wake up in it
One fine day
In the middle of the night
But you probably won't admit it

All I ever wanted
Was to radiate your home
But I guess it doesn't matter
So come reminisce about a time we didn't have

I hear there's a sequel to that film that never made you sad
Don't rewrite my history
'Cause you never really know
How much you didn't mean to me

One fine day
In the middle of the night
You'll wake up in it
One fine day

In the middle of the night
But you probably won't admit it

    General CommentThis is a special song - really clever lyrics and it's exactly how I feel about a certain time in my life too. It's about times you could have had but didn't, quite sad. I love the line "don't rewrite my history cos you'll never really know how much you didn't mean to me" - genius, I know exactly what he means. In his book Feel, Robbie says he thought bits of this song were about how he felt about his parents divorcing. It also says that the song was based on a poem he had to learn at school and I think it must be the same poem I knew when I was younger. It goes like this:

    One fine day in the middle of the night
    Two dead men got up to fight
    Back to back, they faced each other
    Drew their swords and shot each other
