one perfect day when it’s clear like this
washes away all my lame excuses
one perfect day grabs me by the wrist
and it makes me forget last night’s “what’s the use’s”
+++ it burns the sugar from my blood,
+++ burns the sugar from my blood

and this sky’s as bright as you are far away, so I try
and keep your love tucked in my right front pocket
so I can take it out and hold it up like a prism to the sun
and I see all the colors of a Chinese rocket
+++ so burn the sugar from my blood
+++ wipe the sleep out of these eyes
+++ show me everything that’s good, take me by surprise
+++ scrape the anger from these veins and watch it fall away
+++ when I step outside into a perfect day..

over the rooftops and underneath the sky
looks like plenty of room for my mind to wander
so maybe I can find you there, I’ve surely gotta try
on a day like this to dive into that wild blue yonder
+++ so burn the sugar from my blood
+++ wipe the sleep out of these eyes
+++ show me everything that’s good, take me by surprise
+++ scrape the anger from these veins and watch it fall away
+++ when I step outside into a perfect day,
+++ one perfect day when it’s clear like this
+++ washes away all my lame excuses

one perfect day grabs me by the wrist
and it makes me forget last night’s “what’s the use’s”
+++ it burns the sugar from my blood,
+++ burns the sugar from my blood…
