"That Day" as written by Natalie Jane Imbruglia, Patrick Raymond Leonard and Y ....
That day, That day
What a mess what a marvel
I walked into that cloud again
And I lost myself
And I'm sad, sad, sad
Small, alone, scared
Craving purity
A fragile mind and a gentle spirit

That day, That day,
What a marvelous mess
This is all that I can do
I'm done to be me
Sad, scared, small, alone, beautiful
It's supposed to be like this
I accept everything
It's supposed to be like this

That day, That day
I lay down beside myself
In this feeling of pain, sadness
Scared, small, climbing, crawling
Towards the light
And it's all that I see and
I'm tired and I'm right
And I'm wrong
And it's beautiful

That day, That day
What a mess, what a marvel
We're all the same
But no one thinks so
And it's okay
And I'm small and I'm divine
And it's beautiful
And it's coming
And it's already here
And it's absolutely perfect

That day, That day
When everything was a mess
And everything was in place
And there's too much hurt
Sad, small, scared, alone
And everyone's a cynic
And it's hard and it's sweet
But it's supposed to be like this

That day, That day
When I sat in the sun
And I thought and I cried
Cause I'm sad, scared, small
Alone, strong
And I'm nothing and I'm true
Only a brave man can break through
And it's all okay
Yeah, it's okay

That day, That day
I lay down beside myself
In this feeling of pain, sadness
Scared, small, climbing, crawling
Towards the light
And it's all that I see and
I'm tired and I'm right
And I'm wrong
And it's beautiful

That day, That day
What a mess, what a marveleous mess
We're all the same
But no one thinks so
And it's okay
And I'm small and I'm divine
And it's beautiful
And it's coming
And it's already here
And it's absolutely perfect

That day, That day
That day, That day

That day, That day
When I lay down beside myself
In this feeling of pain, sadness
Scared, small, climbing, crawling
Towards the light
And it's all that I see and
I'm tired and I'm right
And I'm wrong
And it's beautiful

That day, That day
What a mess, what a marveleous mess
We're all the same
But no one thinks so
And it's okay
And I'm small and I'm divine
And it's beautiful
And it's coming
And it's already here
And it's absolutely perfect

That day, That day
That day, That day
That day, That day
That day, That day

So sweet, can you feel it? (Can you feel it?)
Are you here?
Are you with me?
I can feel it
And its beautiful

That day, That day
That day, absolutely perfect

    General CommentI love the way this song is just what somebody would write when they're in a state of mind that they just wanna throw down all their thoughts and feelings. It's stream-of-consciousness sound is so real.

    General CommentThis song makes me think that the writer was in that perfect state of mind where they're only THEMSELVES & nothing else while writing this. This is a beautiful song :angel:

    General CommentI love this song because I went through exactly the same thing. I mentally collapsed for 3 days straight and couldn't hold up a conversation without crying over nothing. It's all about being confused, feeling and not knowing why. Knowing everything and finding out you know nothing. In the end you straighten yourself out and realise it's all ok.

    General CommentI love this song! I think everyone can relate. It's kind of about all of the contridictions that you feel, all of the confusion and depression. I wish I wrote this song!! :) I love the line "when everyone is a cynic"

    General CommentI perfectly agree with californiarose...this song is everyone's story and it owns to everyone of us... Personally, it is related to a period in which I was totally in love with an older boy who didn't even know I exist,also because we saw each other so seldom. Then, "That day" for me became the day in which I knew I would have seen him for the last time...And do you know what happened?We kissed...I was 17 and now I'm 20,but each time I listen to this wonderful song I can't help crying and thinking about how sad but magic that moment had been,and how much it had meant to me..

    General CommentIt's about apocalypse. He/she who retains loving balance walks into the light; others disappear into the darkness ;)

    Um, see the video: music.ninemsn.com.au/…
