Song:   This is the day

repeat throughout song

Well, you didn't wake up this morning
Cuz, you didn't go to bed
         C                           Eb
You were watching the whites of your eyes turn red

The calendar on your wall is ticking the days off
You've been reading some old letters
You smile and think how much you've changed
All the money in the world
Couldn't buy back those days

You pull back your curtains
And the sun burns into your eyes
You watch a plane flying across a clear blue sky
This is the day - your life will surely change
This is the day - when things fall into place
[ Tab from: ]
You could've done anything -
   if you'd wnated
And all your friends and family
Think that you're lucky
But the side of you they'll never see
Is when you're left alone with the memories
That hold your life together like glue
	   (note: I like to think he says "glue on glue" there)

I watch the sun go down on London town
I wait for the night voices to sound
I smell the pain upon the breath of the lost and the lonely
Oh Lord
I hear the thought that whisper in the hearts of all men

I'm the helpline operator and I'll spare you the time
I'm the intimate stranger. Your problems will be mine

Put your tongue into the mouthpiece
And whisper in my ear
Admit to me
The things you can't admit to yourself
Admit to me and no one else
Everybody's looking for someone
To tell them what they want to hear
Everybody's looking for true love
To help them feel what they cannot feel

I'm the helpline operator, can you spare me the time
I'm the intimate stranger
Your problems will be mine

I'm the helpline operator
Helpline operator
Helpline operator
Helpline operator

True love will come
True love will come

Helpline operator
