Jim Cuddy – One Fine Day lyrics

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
