Natalie Imbruglia – That Day lyrics
That day, that day
What a mess what a marvel
I walked into that cloud again
And I lost myself
And I'm sad, sad, sad
Small, alone, scared
Craving purity
A fragile mind and
A gentle spirit
That day, that day
What a marvelous mess
This is all that I can do
I'm done to be me
Sad, scared, small, alone, beautiful
It's supposed to be like this
I accept everything
It's supposed to be like this

That day, that day
I lay down beside myself
In this feeling of pain, sadness
Scared, small, climbing, crawling
Towards the light
And it's all I see and
I'm tired and I'm right
And I'm wrong
And it's beautiful

That day that day
What a mess
What a marvel
We're all the same
And no one thinks so
And it's okay
And I'm small
And I'm divine
And it's beautiful
And it's coming
But it's already here
And it's absolutely perfect

That day, that day
When everything was a mess
And everything was in place
And there's too much hurt
Sad, small, scared, alone
And everyone's a cynic
And it's hard and it's sweet
But it's supposed
To be like this

That day, that day
When I sat in the sun
And I thought and I cried
'cause I'm sad, scared, small
Alone, strong
And I'm nothing
And I'm true
Only a brave man
Can break through
And it's all okay
Yeah, it's okay

    This song is very special to me personally because of it's meaning, or at least the meaning it has to me.
    To me it's about being in a situation/stage of your life where you're so numbed down that you're not realizing how much your life has taken a wrong turn and you have repressed a lot of your emotions.
    This song is about that moment you've come to realize this and decide to try and something about it instead of feeling sorry for yourself.
    Like a vail being lifted from your face and you're starting to see clearly again.
    And while you're still feeling terrible, there's a sense of hope starting to emerge from within you again. You realize that facing your problems will initially cause you more pain, but you have to let that happen in order to really deal with it and process it.
    The road to happiness is still long, but you've accepted it for the moment and now you can start walking to that light at the end of the tunnel, which is so beautifully portraid in the video too.
    It's really much deeper than I'm able to describe.
