Lyrics: One More Day

We were scared
We were young and unprepared 
We were told where to go 
And what to see 
And what to know 
And now we’re stuck 
All these years stuck in a rut 
Now we’re drinking at these bars
Barely making rent with these guitars

And they say that we don’t know anything 
About the pain in the songs which we sing 
But they’re wrong 

Another day 
Another friend taken away 
Too many pain pills that they took 
Or all the demons had them shook 
So take my hand 
You can use my strength to stand
We can make it one more day 
I promise we’ll make this one more day 

And they say that we don’t know anything 
About the pain in the songs which we sing 
But they’re wrong

So here I am despite all 
that’s come to pass
I can make this one more day
I can make this one more day 

Take my hand 
You can use my strength to stand 
We can make this one more day
We can make this one more day 

Here we stand 
All of us now holding hands
We can make this one more day
We can make this one more day 

So here I am 
Another drink is in my hand 
I will make this one more day 
I will make this one more day
