Song Description

This is about not doing the things you want to do because of the things you have to do.

Story Behind the Song

I'm a stay-at-home mom and I was sitting at my writer's desk, watching all our neighbors go to work. I was thinking that they must not have the time to do the things they want to do. Lee Roy Parnell helped me with a kick-butt slide guitar track.

Lyrics

It Was A Great Day
(Words & Music by Lori Kelley)

When I woke up this morning the sun was in my face.
And on my clock radio, they played ?Amazing Grace.?
I stumbled to the bathroom, then I sprinted for my car.
And I sped down the freeway, just like a shootin? star.

Chorus:
It was a great day for a daydream, but I didn?t have time.
It was a great day for an ice cream, but I did not have the time.
It was a great day for a silly wish, but I didn?t have time.
It was a great day for the perfect kiss, but I did not have the time.

I got to work this morning, there were papers on my desk.
And my office looked a lot like me, that?s to say it was a mess.
I darted for my coffee, and I downed it like a pill.
And I dashed to beat that deadline, with no time to kill.

Chorus

When I got home this evening, the moon was sinking low.
And I wondered where the day had gone, and what I had to show.
For all the working hours, for time away from home,
When I wake up tomorrow, I'm gonna make that day my own!
