Best Day Of My Life

Lyrics

playI had a dream so big and loud
playI jumped so high I touched the clouds
playWo-o-o-o-o-oh, wo-o-o-o-o-oh
playI stretched my hands out to the sky
playWe danced with monsters through the night
playWo-o-o-o-o-oh, wo-o-o-o-o-oh

playI'm never gonna look back
playWoah, never gonna give it up
playNo, please don't wake me now

playThis is gonna be the best day of my life
playMy li-i-i-i-i-ife
playThis is gonna be the best day of my life
playMy li-i-i-i-i-ife

playI howled at the moon with friends
playAnd then the sun came crashing in
playWo-o-o-o-o-oh, wo-o-o-o-o-oh
playBut all the possibilities
playNo limits just epiphanies
playWo-o-o-o-o-oh, wo-o-o-o-o-oh

playI'm never gonna look back
playWoah, never gonna give it up
playNo, just don't wake me now

playThis is gonna be the best day of my life
playMy li-i-i-i-i-ife
playThis is gonna be the best day of my life
playMy li-i-i-i-i-ife

playI hear it calling outside my window
playI feel it in my soul (soul)
playThe stars were burning so bright
playThe sun was out 'til midnight
playI say we lose control (control)

playThis is gonna be the best day of my life
playMy li-i-i-i-i-ife
playThis is gonna be the best day of my life
playMy li-i-i-i-i-ife
playThis is gonna be,
playthis is gonna be,
playthis is gonna be
playThe best day of my life
playEverything is looking up, everybody up now
playThis is gonna be the best day of my life
playMy li-i-i-i-i-ife

meaningMeaning

The group explained the song's meaning to American Songwriter magazine: "We wanted to tell this story of how no matter what's going on- whether you're stuck at your job or having a bad day- there's always an escape from that, and there's always a way to make any day the best day of your life. It's about escaping reality and entering into that dream world."
