one day
(marr, sumner)

we’re in danger, or so i’m told

it’s the end of time and the world is old

you meet a stranger you don’t want to see

dance to the sound of his pen making history



you know that one day, and it won’t be long

we’ll stand in this place
undercover, licensed to be wrong

one day, and it won’t be long

we’ll stand in this place and discover



i’m not ashamed to tell you

but you know it’s over

make it as the beauty crying on my shoulder


it’s hard to face rejection

what used to be affection

i thought it was my duty, like i was a soldier



i’d like to pay you but my funds are thin

i’m so in love with my shirt but i’ll throw it in

why can’t you understand what i am going through

it’s a bad situation, what can i do



you know that one day, and it won’t be long

we’ll stand in this place
undercover, licensed to be wrong

one day, and it won’t be long

we’ll stand in this place and discover



i’m not ashamed to tell you

but you know it’s over

make it as the beauty crying on my shoulder


it’s hard to face rejection

what used to be affection

i thought it was my duty, like i was a solider



like i was a soldier, like i was a soldier

like i was a soldier



one day and it won’t be long

one day and it won’t be long

one day and it won’t be long

one day and it won’t be long



one day and it won’t be long

one day and it won’t be long

one day and it won’t be long

raise the pressure

comment
one of the best guitar-led songs on raise the pressure, one day has a bright, fresh sound thanks to its clean production, crisp, hard drumming from donald johnson, and immortal lines such as ‘i’d like to pay you but my funds are thin/i’m so in love with my shirt but i’ll throw it in’. like for you it has a summery, carefree feel that provides some relief from the more melancholic tracks like freefall and time can tell. the similarity in the chorus to (i’ve had) the time of my life does persist, though…
