"One Day" as written by and Sharon Van Etten....
One day, you'll be on your own
You won't have a shout any more
One day, you'll be in the ground
You're over and out, and
You've missed the last tube home

One day, you'll be on your own
You won't have a shout any more
One day, you'll be in the ground
You're over and out, and
You've missed the last tube home

Woke up this morning, heard someone snoring
Knobheads going on about modern life is boring
Bears have their own music, no-one can prove it
Just like I'm a guy of guys
You think I'm gonna move it

One day, you'll be on your own
You won't have a shout any more
One day, you'll be in the ground
You're over and out, and
You've missed the last tube home

Sum up together, nobody's the wiser
It's life in the sunshine, that's what I would advise her

One day, you'll be on your own
You won't have a shout any more
One day, you'll be in the ground
You're over and out, and
You've missed the last tube home

One day, you'll be on your own
You won't have a shout any more
One day, you'll be in the ground
You're over and out, and
You've missed the last tube home

Woo!
Yeeh-ha!

One day, you'll be on your own
You won't have a shout any more
One day, you'll be in the ground
You're over and out, and
You've missed the last tube home

    General Commentlike the recording... i think it goes a bit like this:


    sister don't mind that i'm not on time
    she knows that i'm through with that
    sick of trying, don't let mind
    mama still love and daddy still love
    they know that i'm here like that
    i'm like mine: true and kind

    call me outside and i will now be
    and i will be fine with that
    you don't leave me now, you might love me back
    distance is fine, i know you can't care
    and nothing is big like that
    you don't see me now, i don't see you back

    ooh, one day i'll be fine with that
    ooh, one day i'll be fine with that
    ooh, one day i'll be fine with that
    you don't leave me now, do you love me back?

    just to remind you i'm a mistake
    how come you don't want to know
    you don't wanna see, you don't wanna show
    kicking myself, i know that you're tough
    yeah, we can pretend we're that
    gotta see how you gotta leave that

    ooh, one day i'll be fine with that
    ooh, one day i'll be fine with that
    ooh, one day i'll be fine with that
    you don't leave me now, do you love me back?

    snow is outside, but i'm by your fire
    i'll feel all the love you'll bring
    you gotta see how we can see this out
    summer in mind, and spring by your side
    we'll see all the love we'll keep
    gotta see that we can't be that

    ooh, one day i'll be fine with that
    ooh, one day i'll be fine with that
    ooh, one day i'll be fine with that
    you don't leave me now, do you love me back?

    General CommentUnlike the recording, sharon now sings "One Day" like this:

    Sister don't mind that I'm not on time
    she knows that i've been like that
    sick of trying don't let mind
    momma still love and daddy still love
    they know that i've been like that
    unlike mine: true and kind

    Call me outside
    and I will now be
    and I'll be fine with that
    don't leave me now

    you don't see me back

    oh one day i'll be fine with that
    don't leave me now
    do you love me back?

    Just to remind you
    I'm a mistake
    How come you don't want to know
    You don't want to see
    you don't want a show

    Kicking myself
    I know that you're tough
    Yeah we can pretend we're that
    Gotta see that
    we can't be like that

    oh one day i'll be fine with that
    don't leave me now
    do you love me back?

    Snow is outside
    but I'm by your fire
    I feel all the love you bring
    Y'gotta see how

    Summer in mind
    and spring by your side
    we'll see all the love we'll keep
    gotta see that
    we can't be that

    oh one day i'll be fine with that

    General CommentLove this, love all her stuff. I once dated a guy ten years my senior, an intense and meaningful fling that we both knew couldn't last. In another life, maybe it could have. Parts of this song could be me speaking, some him, but damn. Thanks Sharon.
