"One Day" as written by and Tom Norris....
Absence make her heart grow fonder
While I’m conquering the last frontier
Lately I’ve found myself wonderin’ out loud
Wonderin’ what I was doin’ here

[Chorus]
One day you’ll understand how much you have me
One day you’ll realise we have it easy
I can’t offer you the future - I don’t know it myself
All I can offer you is me
I’m all I can offer you right now

Patience make her heart grow stronger
Reassure her she’s where I want to be
Never was the grass ever greener
I’m about ready as I’ll ever be

And one day you’ll understand how much you have me
One day you’ll realise we have it easy
If an expression of love is what you need to believe
All I can offer you is me
I’m all I can offer you right now

[Music]

I’m all I am
All I am, yeah

One day you’ll understand how much you have me
One day you’ll realise we have it easy
I can’t offer you the future - I don’t know it myself
All I can offer you is me

One day you’ll understand how much you have me
One day you’ll realise we have it easy
If an expression of love is what you need to believe
All I can offer you is me
I’m all I can offer you right now

[Pause]

Absence make her heart grow fonder
While I’m conquering the last frontier

    General CommentThis song is on the ad for New Zealand Post, it's really nice, but kind of has a dead end meaning.

    General CommentYou can't help but sing along to this when you hear it on the radio or TV. It's a cute song, even if it does have a 'dead end meaning'.

    General CommentWhat do you mean by a dead end meaning? I think I heard somewhere that the song was about Jason's partner having to be alone waiting for him to return when he was away on tour and the tension that caused between Jason wanting to 'conquer the last frontier' with the band but also wanting to be where she is.. Could be getting confused with another band though as the band Emery has a song called 'In a win win situation' which has a similar meaning. But it still fits with this song either way =P

    General CommentThis song was released when my daughter was a newborn baby and it pretty much summed up how I felt at the time, not being able to make any promises about being a great mother but being there for her always.
