"Beautiful Day" (Quincey And Sonance Mix)

"'Beautiful Day' has a directness reminiscent of early U2 but with Edge bringing a dizziness and futuristic quality so that it doesn't feel retro. The guitar chords were nothing special but they were my attempt to get the album airborne, the way a rock band like the Buzzcocks would. The lyric expresses amazement, really, that whatever situation you find yourself in, as uncomfortable and upsetting as they can be, if you're alive and you are awake, then you have perspective on it... Pain is evidence of life because it reminds you there are things in your life that aren't right. So you should be thankful for it really and celebrate that there is so much to live for." - Bono, U2 By U2 2006

Day, day, day, day
Day, day, day, day
It's a beautiful day
Don't let it get away
Beautiful day
Day, day

The heart is a bloom
Shoots up through the stony ground
But there's no room
No space to rent in this town
You're out of luck
And the reason that you had to care
The traffic is stuck
And you're not moving anywhere

It was a beautiful day
Beautiful day

You thought you'd found a friend
To take you out of this place
Someone you could lend a hand
In return for grace
Always

It's a beautiful day
The sky falls, you feel like
It's a beautiful day
Touch me
Take me to that other place
Teach me, love
I know I'm not a hopeless case

You're on the road
But you've got no destination
You're in the mud
In the maze of her imagination
You love this town
Even if that doesn't ring true
You've been all over
And it's been all over you
Always

It's a beautiful day
The sky falls and you feel like
It's a beautiful day
Touch me
Take me to that other place
Teach me, love
I know I'm not a hopeless case

See the Bedouin fires at night
See the oil fields at first light and
See the bird with a leaf in her mouth
After the flood all the colours came out

Day, day

It was a beautiful day
Don't let it get away
It was a beautiful day

It was a beautiful day
The sky falls and you feel like
It was a beautiful day

What you don't have you don't need it now
What you don't know you can feel somehow
What you don't have you don't need it now
Don't need it now
It was a beautiful day

It's warm in the sun, I reach to the sun
