"Never Comes The Day" as written by and Justin Hayward....
Work away today, work away tomorrow.
Never comes the day for my love and me.
I feel her gently sighing as the evening slips away.
If only you knew what's inside of me now
You wouldn't want to know me somehow,
But
You will love me tonight,
We alone will be alright,
In the end.

Give just a little bit more
Take a little bit less
From each other tonight
Admit what you're feeling
And see what's in front of you,
It's never out of your sight.
You know it's true,
We all know that it's true.

Work away today, think about tomorrow
Never comes the day for my love and me.
I feel her gently sighing as the evening slips away.
If only you knew what's inside of me now
You wouldn't want to know me somehow,
But
You will love me tonight,
We alone will be alright,
In the end.

Give just a little bit more
Take a little bit less
From each other tonight
Admit what you're feeling
And see what's in front of you,
It's never out of your sight.
You know it's true,
We all know that it's true.

    General CommentThese guys have a way with these songs that speak about love in metaphysical and existential terms. Maybe or maybe not, but this songs is one of the best among their earlier recordings. This tune is very good.

    My InterpretationThe song speaks about a couple who work hard and never have time for the other, or maybe about an ideal future love which hasn't been materialised so far yet.

    The beginning is a pure expression of thoughts and feelings, with a great honesty, about that distance and how it affects him emotionally.

    Then, the other part explodes, as from a spak of wisdom, understanding the reason on everything, and philosophy appears healing it all: "Give just a little bit more, take a little bit less". Giving is by far the essential answer to most of relational problems in the world, and here the person finds the answer in giving, and taking the most of the time together with the loved person.

    The song is one of the best songs I ever heard, the contrast between parts 1/3 and parts 2/4 makes it unique, if only really similar structurally to 'Tuesday Afternoon', very philosophical as well, but more introspective than centered on relations like this one.

    General Commenti love this song so freakin much! i really like the song until its gets faster paced and they say "give a little more take a little bit less" cuz the slower part of the song sounds so sad but really pretty......anyways i love this song!

    General Comment"You wouldn't want to know me somehow" - This line just seems out of place in this song... Is he thinking about strangling her, leaving her, I can't think how this line makes sense in the context of the rest of the song, which to me is a song about life being so busy that we sometimes don't focus on the truly important things.

    General Comment"You wouldn't want to know me somehow" to me seems to be that he has some impure thought, something along the lines of cheating on her or just thinking about screwing her brains out but it definitly seems out of place.

    The first part (slow part) seems to me that its about a couple that can never find time for each other and when they do its never enough time. The second part (fast part) is about how the girl doesn't admit that they are in love and that she should just admit it and take advantage of the time they have together.

    This song is also one of the many songs that they just repeat the whole thing over for no apparent reason. If you want to look into it then I would say its just the same thing happens every night that they get together

    General CommentJustin said during an interview (Audience with a View) that it's a "Girl on the Road" song. I suspect the "You wouldn't want to know me somehow" line refers to "I won't be staying". I think the song is truly saying lets make the most of the time we have together, even if it's not forever.
