  • My tea's gone cold, I wondering why I got out of bed at all
    The morning rain clouds up my window, and I can't see at all
    And even if I could it'd all be grey, but your picture on my wall
    It reminds me that it's not so bad, it's not so bad

    I drank too much last night, got bills to pay, my head just feels in pain
    I missed the bus and there'll be hell today, I'm late for work again
    And even if I'm there, they'll all imply that I might not last the day
    And then you call me and it's not so bad, it's not so bad

    And I want to thank you for giving me the best day of my life
    And oh just to be with you is having the best day of my life

    Push the door, I'm home at last and I'm soaking through and through
    Then you handed me a towel and all I see is you
    And even if my house falls down now, I wouldn't have a clue
    Because you're near me

    And I want to thank you for giving me the best day of my life
    And oh just to be with you is having the best day of my life

    And I want to thank you for giving me the best day of my life
    And oh just to be with you is having the best day of my life Writer/s: Dido Armstrong, Paul Philip Herman

  • Ryanrockit from Charlotte Nc UsaSomehow surfed onto this page and watched Dido's vid/song for first time (other than recognizing her voice from the Eminem track "Stan") and what a voice it is.
    Sorry for your family's loss, Randy. I lost my life's love of 8 years just after Xmas. Still coming to terms with missing her and how life is so different now. Some kinds of pain, only time heals.
  • Randy from Ashland, OhMy brother loved this song.We both do.He gave me a place to stay and his friendship when I was homeless, jobless, and going through a divorce. I went to to Texas to see the ocean thinking I was gonna die because I was told I had a brain tumor. Things weren't good. I gotta phone call one morning down there,.my mother found him ,..he'd passed away, never heard her cry that way,..was so incredibly sad.This song makes me cry now when i hear it,..I need to stop listening to it!,..But Thank you Dido,..all the same! It's a beautiful melody! Randy Summers

  • Sara from St. Augustine, FlThis guy I like..... ummm..Spot. I was having a bad day and he made it much better. He is the guy I love. Now he's gave me more day's to spend. But, everytime I hear this song...I think of the first day we spent together. It gives me hope that me and him might end up together.
  • Amanda from East Grand Forks, Mnmy best friend moved to another country a couple years ago, and it was really hard on me. one of my guy friends really helped me through it and now we're engaged. this song really reminds me of him.
  • Iris from El Paso, TxI just love this song. It remionds me of my ex boyfriend, Ernie. He was such a great guy. He always made the end of my day seem so much better than the rest of the day went. He was my shoulder that I could lean on. My best friend, my lover, my everything. I love him. I still do. And I know I will never love anyone the way I loved him, ever again.
