Song Description

The narrator reflects on the choices he has made putting work ahead of a relationship, with a mixture of regret and gratitude for good times in the past. The specific examples used reflect a medical career, but these feelings would be common to many professions.

Story Behind the Song

This is based (loosely) on my experiences in medical training and practice.

Lyrics

ONE GOOD DAY

VERSE 1
When life is tearing me apart
And I can?t stand the strain
Of ringing phones and pager tones
And deadlines I can?t change
I close my eyes, and let your face
Fill up my memory
And wish that I could wake up
To a new reality

CHORUS 1
Give me one good day
When things are going right
And I can find some peace of mind
To get me through the night
And you are lying close to me
As the twilight slips away
That would be enough for me
One good day

VERSE 2
You told me I could reach the stars
And then you watched me shine
I made the grades and made the rounds
But missed the vital signs
Now scalpel blades and x-rays
Could never let me see
How I came to be this man
Who really isn?t me

BRIDGE
Success is just a hollow rush
That lingers in your veins
But pride can't start an empty heart
And I'd give it all away for

CHORUS 2
One good day
When things are going right
And I can find some peace of mind
To get me through the night
And you are lying close to me
As the twilight slips away
That would be enough for me
One good day

TAG
A second chance, another dance
One good day
