"One Day" as written by and Richard Ashcroft....
One day maybe we will dance again
Under fiery skies
One day maybe you will love again
Love that never dies

One day maybe you will see the land
Touch skin with sand
You've been swimming in the lonely sea
With no company

Oh, don't you want to find?
Can't you hear this beauty in life?
The roads, the highs, breaking up your life
Can't you hear this beauty in life?

One day maybe you will cry again
Just like a child
You've gotta tie yourself to the mast my friend
And the storm will end

Oh, don't you want to find?
Can't you hear this beauty in life?
The times, the highs, breaking up your mind
Can't you hear this beauty in life?

Oh, you're too afraid to touch
Too afraid you'll like it too much
The roads, the times, breaking up your mind
Can't you hear this beauty in life?

One day maybe I will dance again
One day maybe I will love again
One day maybe we will dance again
You know you've gotta
Tie yourself to the mast my friend
And the storm will end
One day maybe you will love again
You've gotta tie yourself to the mast my friend
And the storm will end

    General CommentDoes anyone else ever find that the line "tie yourself to the mast my friend and the storm will end" reminds them of Leuitenant (sp?) Dan in the film Forrest Gump and the scene where he sits at the top of the mast shouting and shaking his fist in anger at the storm. But also shouting in anger at his misfortune in life to God. Then the following day there is the line "I think he made his peace with god".

    Its a slightly different take on it but still serves as to the idea that you need to face the storm, face the difficulties in life head on and while it is hard to do the aftermath will be worth it, you will move on.
