"Oh What a Day" as written by and Ingrid Michaelson....
Oh what a day is today
Nothing can stand in my way
Now that you've shipped out from under my skin
I think I'm ready to win

Oh what a night is tonight
I think I'm ready to fight
Now that my broken bones all have been healed
I think I'm starting to feel

Something good
Something good
Now that you're gone I can roll on to something good

Oh what a way that we die
Plenty of tears were supplied
My eyes are wrung out and dry as a bone
And I taste much better alone

Something good
Something good
Now that you're gone I can roll onto something good

Oh you know I moved away
From the other side of the door
I don't have to wait anymore for you to come home
Something good
Now that you're gone I can roll on to something good
Something good

    General CommentIt's about taking a positive view of a break-up:

    "I taste much better alone"
    "Now than you're gona I can roll on to something good"

    General CommentI love this song so much lately because I am going through the same thing she is. I just broke up with my boyfriend a few weeks ago, and I have never appreciated my independence so much up until that point.
    This little, lovely, but not lonesome lullaby touches my heart in a personal way. I hope that there are many girls who are able to have this light shed on them, looking forward to whatever little happiness comes their way.

    General CommentPretty self explanatory but I still love this song! It's beautiful!

    What a break through to be able to view a break up this way! Sometimes it just takes time to realize that you're better off on your own or better off without a person that you used to think made you happy. But sometimes you really can't have something good until you finally let go of whatever was holding you back. Ingrid is simply amazing!
