about

Now. Right now. This is the perfect time to live how we want to live. This song is about those glimpses of presence that we experience in our day to day comings and goings

lyrics

Yesterday the city seemed dressed in shades of gray
And everyone I passed was either stressed mad or afraid
I was about to run away and join a world behind closed eyes
When a strangeness came over me the streets began to shine

It was the perfect day
I made my world a different place
I learned a way to be amazed at all of creation and
Burned the page that told me how and what to say
On that perfect day I started life again
My way

Now I see colours in these city streets I've never seen before
I see neon jumping from the walls and rainbows on the floor
It's like magic started falling down like water out the sky
Now flowers bloom in desert sand that used to be so dry

And it's the perfect day
To make your world a different place and
Learn a way to be amazed at all of creation and
Burn the page that tells you how and what to say
On this perfect day you can start your life again
Your way

We won't find hopes and dreams in magazines we have to go outside
We'll be more complete with naked feet and the sunshine in our eyes

‘Cause it's the perfect day
To make our world a different place and
Learn a way to be amazed at all of creation and
Burn the page that tells us how and what to say
On this perfect day we can start our lives again
Our way
