Song Lyrics




Where is the moment we needed the most

You kick up the leaves and the magic is lost

They tell me your blue skies fade to grey

They tell me your passion`s gone away

And I don`t need no carryin` on

You stand in the line just to hit a new low

You`re faking a smile with the coffee to go

You tell me your life`s been way off line

You`re falling to pieces everytime

And I don`t need no carryin` on

Cause you had a bad day

You`re taking one down

You sing a sad song just to turn it around

You say you don`t know

You tell me don`t lie

You work at a smile and you go for a ride

You had a bad day

The camera don`t lie

You`re coming back down and you really don`t mind

You had a bad day

You had a bad day

Well you need a blue sky holiday

The point is they laugh at what you say

And I don`t need no carryin` on

You had a bad day

You`re taking one down

You sing a sad song just to turn it around

You say you don`t know

You tell me don`t lie

You work at a smile and you go for a ride

You had a bad day

The camera don`t lie

You`re coming back down and you really don`t mind

You had a bad day

(Oh.. Holiday..)

Sometimes the system goes on the blink

And the whole thing turns out wrong

You might not make it back and you know

That you could be well oh that strong

And I`m not wrong

So where is the passion when you need it the most

Oh you and I

You kick up the leaves and the magic is lost

Cause you had a bad day

You`re taking one down

You sing a sad song just to turn it around

You say you don`t know

You tell me don`t lie

You work at a smile and you go for a ride

You had a bad day

You`ve seen what you like

And how does it feel for one more time

You had a bad day

You had a bad day

Had a bad day

Had a bad day

Had a bad day

Had a bad day

Had a bad day
