"Another Lonely Day" as written by and Ben Harper....
Yes indeed I'm alone again
And here comes emptiness crashing in
It's either love or hate
I can't find in between
'Cause I've been with witches
And I have been with a queen

It wouldn't have worked out anyway
So now it's just another lonely day
Further along we just may
But for now it's just another lonely day

Wish there was something I could say or do
I can resist anything but the temptation from you
But I'd rather walk alone
Than chase you around
I'd rather fall myself
Than let you drag me on down

It wouldn't have worked out anyway
And now it's just another lonely day
Further along we just may
But for now it's just another lonely day

Yesterday seems like a life ago
'Cause the one I love
Today I hardly know
You I held so close in my heart oh dear
Grow further from me with every fallen tear

It wouldn't have worked out anyway
So now it's just another lonely day
Further along we just may
But for now it's just another lonely day
For now it's just another lonely day
For now it's just another lonely day

    General Commentit seems like its about a guy looking for love.. and its not working out because he never finds the person that completes him...and hes getting kinda cynical w/ " it wouldn't have worked out any way"..and he got hurt really bad before so he cant let himself open up to anyone else..

    General CommentIt just wasn't the right time. Someday, it might be ("further along we just may), but for now, he's content with the lonely days.

    There were too many fights ("either love or hate") and no middle ground.

    So much time has passed that they've now become strangers. The person he held so close and dear is no longer in his life. But he still misses her dearly.

    General CommentVirrrgo, u have impeccable tastes in music. the songs u mentioned are his absolute best. But to see him live in concert (5/05/01) is the ultimate high, takes no back seet to pot or shrooms.

    General Commentwow this song is so beautiful. i love the lines:

    wish there was something
    I could say or do
    I can resist anything
    but temptation from you

    it reminds me of how no matter what i did to get over this guy, i knew that if he wanted me, he'd have me.

    but any way, awesome song!
