Best Day Of My Life

Lyrics

play I had a   so big and  
play I   so high I touched the clouds
play Wo-o-o-o-o-oh, wo-o-o-o-o-oh
play I   my hands out to the sky
play We   with monsters through the night
play Wo-o-o-o-o-oh, wo-o-o-o-o-oh

play I'm never gonna look back
play Woah, never gonna give it up
play No, please don't wake me now

play This is gonna be the best day of my life
play My li-i-i-i-i-ife
play This is gonna be the best day of my life
play My li-i-i-i-i-ife

play I   at the moon with friends
play And then the sun   crashing in
play Wo-o-o-o-o-oh, wo-o-o-o-o-oh
play But all the  
play No limits just epiphanies
play Wo-o-o-o-o-oh, wo-o-o-o-o-oh

play I'm never gonna look back
play Woah, never gonna give it up
play No, just don't wake me now

play This is gonna be the best day of my life
play My li-i-i-i-i-ife
play This is gonna be the best day of my life
play My li-i-i-i-i-ife

play I hear it calling   my window
play I feel it in my soul (soul)
play The stars were   so bright
play The sun was out 'til  
play I say we lose control (control)

play This is gonna be the best day of my life
play My li-i-i-i-i-ife
play This is gonna be the best day of my life
play My li-i-i-i-i-ife
play This is gonna be,
play this is gonna be,
play this is gonna be
play The best day of my life
play Everything is   up, everybody up now
play This is gonna be the best day of my life
play My li-i-i-i-i-ife

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."
