"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.

    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 CommentTHis song reminds me of me and my girlfriend, cause everytime we are together (and we are together alot) we one of us, one way or the other has to leave, and we always are wanted to stay longer or one more day, but we always know we always want one more minute or one more day. but this song is as beautiful as my girlfriend(fixin to be wife). so i like this song alot.

    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.
