ONE FINE DAY - BRIAN ENO & DAVID BYRNE - Time Lapse - Four Seasons
Saw the wandrin' eye inside my heart

Shouts and battle cries from every part

I can see those tears, every one is true

When the door appears I'll go right through



I stand in liquid light like everyone

I built my life with rhymes to carry on

And it gives me hope to see you there

The things I used to know, that one fine



One fine day

One fine day
