"Bad Day" as written by and Steven Page....
I'm having a bad day
There's nothing you can do or say
To help me through this bad day
I think I'll just stay in my room

They didn't need to say
That they didn't want to play
I could have guessed ti anyway
And that's why I'm here in my room

Seems like I'm the only one
Who's not outside and having fun
I wish this day had never begun
I think I'll just stay in my room

Sometimes I want to run and hide
Today I want to stay inside
Tell my bike to take itself for a ride
I'm staying in today
See the toys lying on the floor
I don't want them anymore
Think I'll sell them back to the store
Or give them all away


I don't need hugs and I don't want food
I want to stay here in this lonely mood
I wish they would all go away
Dad come in and tells me with a kiss
That everyone has days like this
He brought my dinner
Said I was missed
I think I'll be OK

I know I'm not the only one
To stay inside and watch the fun
Thanks a lot, that helped a ton
Tomorrow's going to be a better day

    General CommentI think the last stanza is particularly telling.

    I know I'm not the only one
    to stay inside and watch the fun

    Leads me to believe that Dad himself has had (or is currently having in the course of the song) very similar reactions to similar experiences.

    General Commenti'll do the same when I have a son, I'll bring him dinner and a kiss, so he'll start to feel OK.

    I never had my dad doing that on me.

    we were never close.

    Such a wonderful song.
