"The Long Day Is Over" as written by Jesse Harris and Norah Jones....
Feeling tired
By the fire
The long day is over

The wind is gone
Asleep at dawn
The embers burn on

With no reprise
The sun will rise
The long day is over

    General Commenthmmmm some class it as easy listening, or jazz/blues. i don't know how to describe it myself, except that it's beautiful in it's simplicity and serenity.

    General Commenti tend to feel just like this song describes a simple day...a really long one..its not 'bout time..
    its about how we..make those days..with our mood..
    its us..who decide..what kinda day we're gonna have..
    so i guess..its depressive..sad and really beutiful..cuz it holds hope within...
    we all have low..bad ...awful..sad days..
    i know for sure..
    but..yeah..with no reprise..the sun will rise..
    this is a beautiful song..kinda short and really simple.gorgeous...but it just gets u..
    peace

    General Commenti listen to this song after i've had a horrible depressing day, and it seems to just make me feel so much better. i love how her songs are about such simple beautiful things in life like the end of a long day. it's amazing that this song is only a few lines long but seems so much longer.

    General CommentThis is my favorite Norah Jones song, it is simple and beautiful. Some people think that her music is depressing but I love it. This is one of those songs that you sit in silence on the coach with your significant other and just...

    General CommentI used to listen to this song all the time a couple years ago, but completely forgot about it until today. I had a really long day, and all of a sudden starting humming this song - I didn't even realize at first. It definitely calmed me down; I think I'll be listening to it a lot more now.
