"Perfect Day" as written by and Ed Roland....
There she stumbles
Falling to her knees
I think she tripped on reality

I have witnessed
Tragic comedies
That's the world in which she leads

Well I would walk a million miles
To give her all that she needs
But she would walk a million more
To do what she believes

She'll have a perfect day

Troubles blooming
Innocence now fades
But still she's dry through
All the rain

There's no purpose
She has yet to crave
She's like the big dog on parade

Well I would walk a million miles
To give her all that she needs
She would walk a million more
To do well as she pleased

She had a perfect day

I can't figure this one out
I've no words here to explain
She'll just sugar kiss me off
She'll just have another perfect day

    General CommentI love this song...It is a true feel-good song. There's no song that I like better at the end of a bad day than this song...It always puts me in a good mood. Collective Soul plain and simple makes good music.

    General CommentThis one describes my ex-girlfriend to a T. Always would rather do it her way. You might go to great lengths to help her out, but she'd just do it her way & feel completely content and unashamed that she didn't accept your offering.

    General CommentNo matter how bad her day, or her life is at this point, she'll find a way to get through it. She's a tough cookie!

    General CommentIt's talking about his daughter, whom he always helps out, but who's very determined in life, and is always happy in life no matter what happens because she's got a positive perspective no matter what.

    General Commentto dariofoo's comment, I agree that they could do this song just as well with Elton John but they were fans of his and found out that he was a fan of theirs so the band met with Elton John for dinner and after dinner and wine they started talking about doing a collaboration. Thats what I read from an interview anyways.

    General CommentThis song is obviously about someone, in this case a girl/woman, who is just stumbling through life with no purpose or goal. They have no real cares so, will always have a perfect day...at everyone else's expense. I know a million people like this song describes and the rate is accelerating.

    General CommentAfter I left my abusive husband I was finally able to do things on my own and do them as I saw fit;) It was a glorious time which still defines who I am as a person. I remember thinking that as long as it was MY day that it would be a perfect one. And they always are.
