"One More Day" as written by Herve Jean Laurent and Lee Jones....
Last night I had a crazy dream
A wish was granted just for me
It could be for anything
I didn't ask for money
Or a mansion in Malibu
I simply wished for one more day with you!

One more day, one more time
One more sunset, maybe I'd be satisfied
But then again, I know what it would do
Leave me wishing still for one more day with you
One more day

First thing I'd do is pray for time to crawl
I'd unplug the telephone and keep the t.v off
I'd hold you every second
Say a million I love you's
That's what I'd do with one more day with you

One more day, one more time
One more sunset maybe I'd be satisfied
But then again I know what it would do
Leave me wishing still for one more day with you

One more day, one more time
One more sunset maybe I'd be satisfied
But then again I know what it would do
Leave me wishing still for one more day
Leave me wishing still for one more day
Leave me wishing still for one more day with you.

    MemoryI was in love with an amazing woman... we met as freshmen in college (she dated friends of mine) and I was immediately blown-away by her in every way (smart, funny, exciting, beautiful, accomplished, polished, sexy: the total package). Toward the end of college we dated a little; we continued our relationship from a distance after college for a few years... we grew closer and closer... in late 1983 we spent an amazing long weekend together: she was everything I could ever want or need and I was pretty sure she loved me as much as I loved her (I was totally and completely in love with her). After that weekend I began to think that my profession (I was in the military) would prevent me from allowing her to be truly happy and fulfilled in her profession because of my constant moves to different cities/countries. She was also fearful for my safety in my military profession (I was doing dangerous things most every day). Couple what I perceived about her with the fact that I lacked a lot of confidence in myself in the personal relationship arena and I eventually came to the conclusion that our love for each other would not be enough to fulfill her if she gave-up her professional life for me and my career (I was very obligated to the military for a number of years at that point)... ultimately, I thought that my life and career would cause her to be constantly worried and eventually unhappy. I loved her too much to see her unhappy or to be the cause of her unhappiness. I decided to walk away from our relationship; I've regretted it ever since. Every single day since then I've thought of her and of what we could have been together. In retrospect, I realize that we could have/would have been great. I'm married now and have a family; she never married. Although I love my wife (I have always been faithful) and my family and family life, I have never forgotten my first love and I have always been in love with her. For me this song is intensely personal because I have never stopped loving my first love and often wish I could have just one more day with her; because I am totally faithful to my wife I can never have just one more day with my first love... for me this song is exactly about my longing for something that can never be.

    General CommentPersonally even tho this is country shit i think this is a really sad song:( i think everyone feels like this at some point. I think its about being dumped and wanted them back. Or even about someone dying and wanted to see them one more time even tho they'd always want to be with them longer.

    General Commenti think its more about a person who died and the writer misses that person they would do anything to see them again. but its almost saying that if they saw them again they wouldn;t want to let them go again. Very sad touching song. it was a good 9-11 tribute song as well.

    General CommentThis song almost makes me cry, as I read it. He says "he'd turn the tv off, hold her every second, say a million I love you's", why don't we take the time for these important things while we still have someone? But I think it's about either moving away or someone dying. It's all very very sad. I love the song, but it's sad to listen to it.

    General CommentI agree with all the other meanings but it could also be about being seperated by distance where you only get to see someone for a day or two at a time and you feel perfect but than one of you has to leave and you're left wishhing for exactly what you had been experiencing an hour or two ago.
