A Good Day Lyrics

I caught all the lights I usually miss and
Skies of grey
Well they weren't so blue
But they were beautifully lit
By sunlight breaking
Through the clouds
Tracing buildings on the ground

I'm not asking for more than
To be anything more than
Happy where I rest my head
Cause diamonds turn into dust and
Silver eventually rusts and
I can't buy the things that made
This a good day

I got all my wrongs imperfectly right and
On the way
The angry mob
Was unusually nice
There's a feeling
Passing through the crowd
I could wrap my head and heart around

Well I still got half a day to
But somehow it's gonna stay this way
I know


The things that made
This a good day
It's a good day

How to Format Lyrics:

  • Type out all lyrics, even repeating song parts like the chorus
  • Lyrics should be broken down into individual lines
  • Use section headers above different song parts like [Verse], [Chorus], etc.
  • Use italics (<i>lyric</i>) and bold (<b>lyric</b>) to distinguish between different vocalists in the same song part
  • If you don’t understand a lyric, use [?]
