"One Day" as written by and David Hodges....
If I could change the currents of our lives
To make the river flow where it's run dry
To be a prodigal of father time
Then I would see you tonight

If I could find the years that went away
Destroying all the cruelty of fate
I must believe that love could find a way
Tonight

Lonely finds me
One day you will come
But I'll wait for love's sake
One day to me, love

If I could see beyond the here and now
If you could hear me calling you somehow
If I could know that love is reaching out
To find you with me tonight

Then hope could make these promises come true
Beyond what I could say, what love can do
With every moment leading me to you tonight

Lonely finds me
One day you will come
But I'll wait for love's sake
One day to me, love

I will stay forever here to wait for your love

If I could change the currents of our lives
To make the river flow where it's run dry
To be a prodigal of father time
Then I would see you tonight

Lonely finds me
One day you will come
But I'll wait for love's sake
One day to me, love

Lonely finds me
One day you will come
But I'll wait for love's sake
One day to me, love
One day to me, love
One day to me, love

I will stay forever here to wait for your love

    General Commentat first, i thought this song was about a lost love... waiting for her to return. but now i think its more about longing for the future. he knows that he is alone now but that he has a future lover, a wife perhaps... and he has to wait for fate to bring her to him.

    General CommentHrm. I think the lyrics are a little wrong... I think it is "Love defines me" instead of "Love finds me"

    Great band, little fanbase. :(

    General Commentyeah part of the lyrics are missing - after the second singing of the chorus it's: i will stay forever here, until that one day comes/praying time will bring you near, i'll wait for your love

    but it depends on the version - the one on the stealth track has the lyric above and on the beauty and the tragedy has the exact lyrics on the page.

    yeah, i'm a bit obsessed -this song is just so good

    General CommentDoes anybody know what is being said at the background during the chorus? I'm really interested about that.
