Beautiful Day

Being that it is St. Patrick’s Day, I had to feature a song from U2.

The lyrics start with pointing out all the crappy things that are happening in this day.  There’s no room for love, you’re stuck in traffic, someone who you thought was a friend really isn’t, but they keep throwing in something of an affirmation.  It’s a beautiful day.  Don’t let it slip away.

We all get in a funk from time to time, but it still is a beautiful day.  There are still beautiful clouds in the sky, the smile of a baby, purr of a cat.  Maybe these things are not in front of you at the very moment of the funk, but your mind can take you to that place.

Here’s how the song ends:


It was a beautiful day

Don’t let it get away

Beautiful day


Touch me

Take me to that other place

Reach me

I know I’m not a hopeless case


What you don’t have you don’t need it now

What you don’t know you can feel it somehow

What you don’t have you don’t need it now

Don’t need it now

Was a beautiful day


Have a beautiful St. Patrick’s Day!
