"How the Day Sounds" as written by and Greg Laswell....
Oh who would have ever known this?
Could be this easy
I was a long, long way off
Then just like that it was over
Everything I knew of love
I was a long, long way off

And I think I like how the day sounds
Like how the day sounds through this new song

Thank you for opening the window
The sky is clear as my mind is now
I was a long, long way off
Join me in welcoming the sun in
It's much brighter than the night I hid in
I was a long, long way off

And I think I like how the day sounds
Like how the day sounds through this new song
And I think I like how the day sounds
Like how the day sounds through this new song

From a long way down.

Yeah, it's well worth the time that its taken to get here now
Yeah, it's well worth the time that its taken to get here now

Ba da dum

So go ahead and bang a gong
Nothing can drown out the sound and the whisper of my love

And I think I like how the day sounds
Like how the day sounds through this new song
And I think I like how the day sounds
Like how the day sounds through this new song
Through this new song
Through this new song

And the lines have all been drawn
I know where I belong, where I belong,
Where I belong
And the lines have all been drawn
I know where I belong
Where I belong

And I think I like how the day sounds
Like how the day sounds through this new song
And I think I like how the day sounds
Like how the day sounds through this new song

Oh, won't you sing along
Oh, my love won't you sing along
Oh, won't you sing along
Oh, my love won't you sing along
Oh, won't you sing along
Oh, my love won't you sing along
Oh, won't you sing along
Oh, my love won't you sing along

    General CommentI don't find it uninspired at all.

    I think it has everything to do with a new relationship and realizing what you thought was "love" in the past was completely off base.

    General Commenti think it's his way of coming alive after being left stale by love and life for so long. realizing, as katie said that what he knew of life and love was not "real". another fantastic song by greg. and the video is just spot-on!

    Song MeaningThe music video for this song is terrific. The simple but amazing camera work is simply breathtaking.

    So far I've interpreted:

    He realizes what love means to him. What every day means to him through this new perspective in life. He thanks his girlfriend for opening the window. He can see clearly now and sees he was hiding in the dark, in essence hiding from love.

    Nothing can change how he feels about her. ( the reference of banging a gong )
    He then asks her to sing with him at the end of the song. Asking her to spend the rest of her life with him.

    I Love This Long.

    General Commenti love greg laswell. all his songs are just absolutely brilliant. I love the song
    high and low. Its one of those songs that make you want to cry. It's funny because
    there are many songs that do that when you listen to the lyrics, but the first
    time i heard that song i was sooo fascinated by the comination of his voice and
    the music i wanted to cry regardless. Amazing artist!

    General CommentThe meaning of the song is pretty obvious (rebirth from a failure of sorts at something/everything), but the song is very beautiful, if a bit uninspired.
