  • Another sunny afternoon
    Denies the worried look that's on my face
    Connected through the years
    It somehow took us both in separate ways
    Was on a day that time forgot
    Another day that time forgot
    Oh no
    Oh no

    Should've held you till the storm went by
    We had nothing left to hang on to
    Too many words you said
    But not the words connected me to you
    Just another day that time forgot
    Another day that time forgot
    Oh no
    Oh no

    The two of us we both just let it fly
    Didn't see it leave; didn't even try.
    I only know that we were moving on
    Suddenly it's gone; Heaven knows why.
    Oh no
    Oh no

    Don't have a reason I can give
    At least not one that I can understand
    Just somehow disappeared
    It slipped beneath the fingers on my hand
    It was on a day that time forgot
    Another day that time forgot
    Oh no
    Oh no

    We had it once, but we just let it fall
    Should've held it close; could've had it all.
    I'm thinking about the life we could have made
    Lost the one we had somewhere along the way
    Oh no
    Oh no

    I woke up all alone again
    A half-remembered dream inside my head
    You took me through the day
    Followed me at night into my bed
    It was a day that time forgot
    Another day that time forgot

    Oh no
    Oh no
    Oh no
    Oh no
    Oh no
    Oh no
    Oh no
    Oh no
    Oh no
    Oh no
    Oh no
    Oh no
    Oh no
    Oh no
    Oh no Writer/s: NEIL DIAMOND

  • Shem from OzThe words are fine as they are personal and speak of his experience as he was going through it at the time of writing. The music is good too but somehow the whole thing as a package did not manage to touch me.
  • Michael from Adelaide, South Australia One of the most beautiful of songs.
  • Clint from Melbourne, AustraliaYes..I tend to agree, this is also my favorite track from the album, just love the Piano but there isn't enough of it to send you flying...however the steady rhythmic bass notes throughout kinda makes up for it, nice one Neil....18/4/09
