"Beautiful Day" as written by and Joshua Radin Kenneth A Pattengale....
Gonna wash the dust off my soul
Gonna listen to some rock 'n' roll
No cares, come what may
I'm making a beautiful day

Gonna drive my car to the sea
Swim out far cause I believe
That waves will wash the grey away
I'm making a beautiful day

Let me hear you say

Ooh, oh oh, my my
I'm learning to fly
Hey, hey, what's that you said
Let's not forget we're alive

Gonna climb that hill behind my house
See what this place is all about
Cause from above it all, you can't help but say
It's gonna be a beautiful day
It's gonna be a beautiful day

But let me hear you say

Ooh, oh oh, my my
I'm learning to fly
Hey, hey, what's that you said
Let's not forget we're alive

Gonna turn my enemies into friends
What's broken gets stronger when it mends
When we all come together, this song will play
We'll sing, it's a beautiful day
That's gonna be my beautiful day

Oh oh, my my
I'm learning to fly
Hey, hey, what's that you said
Let's not forget we're alive, that we're alive

    My InterpretationEven though it seems like a moral booster type of a song, i sense some sort of hopelessness in lyrics. Maybe its because of the mood im in right now, but still i believe i have a solid argument. Let me explain;

    He talks about making a beautiful day by doing bunch of stuffs like swimming out as far as he can and climbing a hill. More importantly, he says that he needs to wash the dust off of his soul because he desperately needs to make himself at least one beautiful day after all those bad days hes been through. Maybe this beautiful day mentioned was his last day what he believes to be his salvation.

    Swimming so far until wash ashore somewhere, learning to fly by jumping off of a cliff behind his house can be interpreted as that beautiful day. Cause from above it all he cant help but implying 'I am going to jump from here' by saying 'it is going to be a beautiful day'.

    Also he is craving to hear her saying 'lets not forget we are still alive', which appears not to be said so far.

    Last part of the song kind of proves my point by describing his funeral where everybody(enemies in disguise) gather around for that beautiful day, HIS beautiful day.

    I know i might be misinterpreted what really wanted to be told in these lyrics, but i believe he is trying to emphasize an affective contrast with cheerful tune and hope filling lines of this song.
