One More Day

Words and Music by Bruce Kula

Lucky Thirteen takes his daddy's guitar
Singing one more day, one more day
Pulling her strings, playing hopelessly hard
Singing one more day, one more day
One more day
and I'll know who I am
One more day
and I'll be who I think I can be

"Such a serious child playing music alone
Singing one more day, one more day
Boy, are you happy?" "Well, no, but I'm strong
I'll make it one more day, one more day"
One more day
and I'll know who I am
One more day
and I'll be who I think I can be

Then he finds love in a midsummer rain
and somehow he makes her believe:
All that he needs is a little more time
and there's nothing that he couldn't be

A bald-headed boy plays his music alone
Singing one more day, one more day
His heart is all hers but his blues are his own
Singing one more day, one more day
