One Fine Day (Jim Cuddy)

You were born on a windswept morn Under the summer sky They moved you past all the kids in your class You never even asked why Oh the golden days Lying awake at night Hearing the ocean spray Nobody counting the lives you've cost No mothers crying for sons they've lost Nobody watching at all Just you and the road as it curves and bends Doing little jobs for your daddy's friends One day when the world is right We're going to walk in the bright blue light When your kingdom's gone And your friends moved on We're going to watch you fall We're going to watch it all One fine day Stuck your hand in a desert land Hoping that liberty shines Counting the sins of the ones you put in Sweeping the roads for mines It's funny how it all works out You sleep sound at night Me I have my doubts I see a people all tired and torn Moving along like a gathering storm You see nothing at all Walking around with your head in the clouds Praying to God that it all works out One day when the world is right We're going to walk in the bright blue light When your kingdom's gone And your friends moved on We're going to watch you fall We're going to watch it all One fine day Nobody waves good-bye When you sneak away one night Under the blood red sky Leaving a town where hope's gone cold A little more helpless than it was before Listen close you'll hear A cry comes back from the burning sand One more kid in a broken land One day when the world is right We're going to walk in the bright blue light When your kingdom's gone And your friends moved on We're going to watch you fall One day when the world is right We're going to walk in the broad daylight When your kingdom's gone And your friends moved on We're going to watch you fall We're going to watch you crawl One fine day
