"One Day" as written by Ari Levine, Peter Gene Hernandez, Philip Martin Ii Lawrence and Matthew Miller....
See everybody that´s existing
Got a mind of their own
We´re all Kings and Queens
With a throne of our own
Tryin to raise a family
Is an empty home
We got to learn to stick together
Hate to be here alone
'Cause the world is a place
That will eat you alive in one day
Said the world is a place
That you can´t survive without faith

Sometimes in my tears I drown
But I never let it get me down
So when negativity surrounds
I know some day it´ll all turn around
Because

All my life I´ve been waiting for
I´ve been praying for
For the people to say
That we don´t wanna fight no more
They´ll be no more wars
And our children will play
One day (one day), One day (one day)
One day (one day), One day (one day)
One day (one day), One day (one day)

It´s not about
Win or lose
We all lose
When they feed on the souls of the innocent
Blood drenched pavement
Keep on moving though the waters stay raging
In this maze you can lose your way (your way)
It might drive you crazy
But don't let it faze you no way (no way)

Gotta hold on
Livin life day by day
Gotta hold on
Put your focus on that one day

All my life I´ve been waiting for
I´ve been praying for
For the people to say
That we don´t wanna fight no more
They´ll be no more wars
And our children will play
One day (one day), One day (one day)
One day (one day), One day (one day)
One day (one day), One day (one day)

One day this all will change
Treat people the same
Stop with the violence
Down with the hate
One day we´ll all be free
And proud to be
Under the same sun
Singing songs of freedom like

Gotta hold on
Livin life day by day
Gotta hold on
Put your focus on that one day

All my life I´ve been waiting for
I´ve been praying for
For the people to say
That we don´t wanna fight no more
They´ll be no more wars
And our children will play
One day (one day), One day (one day)
One day (one day), One day (one day)
One day (one day), One day (one day)

    General CommentThe first time I heard this I thought it was great
    not only because it was catchy and well done, but because the lyrics are really saying something.

    I think everyone can relate to the wish for peace around them.

    General Commentpretty sure theres alot of wrong lyrics here. In fact the part in the first line that's posted here as "But in God I'll be him" is actually "I thank GOD I'm breathing"

    General CommentThis song is obviously about war(s) and the affect they have on the world. That is what i love about Matis, not only can he produce awesome rhythms, but his lyrics really have truth in them. Who knows, maybe there will be a day when there will be no such thing as war.

    Song MeaningI happen to be a Hassidic Jew (like Matisyahu) and happen to know that this song is right out out the teachings of Hassidic Jewdaism. The basic theme of the song is the fundamental of it's teachings, and the Rebbes' most majorly emphasized point, the anticipation of the Messianic era when the world will be a freer, happier, safer place to live. This actually is one of 13 fundamentals of Jewdaism in general, not only of Hassidic Jewdaism.

    General CommentI think the third verse is:

    One day this all will change
    Treat people the same
    Stop with the violence
    Down with the hate
    One day we'll all be free
    And proud to be
    Under the same sun
    Singing songs of freedom like
