One Day

Album: Light (2009)
Charted: 85
  • Sometimes I lay
    Under the moon
    And thank God I'm breathing
    Then I pray
    Don't take me soon
    Cause I'm here for a reason

    Sometimes in my tears I drown
    But I never let it get me down
    So when negativity surrounds
    I know some day it'll all turn around

    Because
    All my life I've been waiting for
    I've been praying for
    For the people to say
    That we don't wanna fight no more
    They'll be no more wars
    And our children will play

    One day
    One day
    One day
    One day
    One day
    One day

    It's not about
    Win or lose
    Because we all lose
    When they feed on the souls of the innocent
    Blood drenched pavement
    Keep on moving, though the waters stay raging
    In this maze you can lose your way (your way)
    It might drive you crazy but don't let it faze you no way (no way)

    Sometimes in my tears I drown (I drown)
    But I never let it get me down (get me down)
    So my negativity surrounds (surrounds)
    I know some day it'll all turn around

    Because
    All my life I've been waiting for
    I've been praying for
    For the people to say
    That we don't wanna fight no more

    They'll be no more war
    And our children will play

    One day
    One day
    One day
    One day
    One day
    One day

    One day this all will change
    Treat people the same
    Stop with the fighting
    Down with the hate
    One day we'll all be free
    And proud to be
    Under the same sun
    Singing songs of freedom like

    One day
    One day
    One day
    One day
    One day
    One day

    All my life I've been waiting for
    I've been praying for
    For the people to say
    That we don't wanna fight no more
    They'll be no more wars
    And our children will play

    One day
    One day
    One day
    One day
    One day

  • Mark from Southern, Nh"'One Day' is the song I've been wanting to make since I started my career," Matisyahu told Spinner. "It is an anthem of hope with a big beat -- the kind of song that makes you bob your head and open your heart at the same time."
