lyrics

Damn Fine Day

I can read your eyes, I can see you’re sad
I can feel your heart beat away the bad
Bad times we’ve fallen on…
It’s like we found our lives stuck on pause
Feel an endless strain but never find the cause
Well the world can’t keep us down

Today will be a damn fine day
Today, we’ll pretend that it’s a holiday
Get dressed in your best
And dress me up in mine
We’ll make the most of the meantime

I will take you back to that summer’s day
Where we promised to never betray
Each other or those dreams we had
Let’s go out, paint the town red
Dance to your favorite songs until we crash in bed
Well the world can’t keep us down

Today will be a damn fine day
Today, we’ll pretend that it’s a holiday
Get dressed in your best
And dress me up in mine
We’ll make the most of the meantime

Even I’ll admit
There are days where I feel my spirit
Fade into the night that was once starlit
Stars array when you smile

I don’t know how I got this far
Behind the chase of a lucky star
When it’s only you I need
And the world can’t keep us down

Today will be a damn fine day
Today, we’ll pretend that it’s a holiday
Get dressed in your best
And dress me up in mine
We’ll make the most of the meantime
Stars array when you smile
