VERSE
Tomorrow I bet I can crawl out of bed,
And I might even open the shades.
And the weekend will fly by, and some friends will drop by,
And tell me I’ll be OK.
By Tuesday the hurt won’t keep me from work,
And I’ll hide it from everyone.
Sounds easy to do if I just get through
Day one.

VERSE
In a week or so, all the neighbors will know
When they don’t see your car outside.
By day 17 I won’t need a drink
To help me close my eyes.
By day 28 I’ll go out on a date,
And she’ll think I’m having fun.
Sounds easy to do if I just get through
Day one.

CHORUS
I can’t skip the pain – I can’t stop my mind,
So I’ll just take one at a time.
It might even be a year, maybe three
Before the damage comes undone.
But I’ll get over you if I just get through
Day one.

VERSE
By day 45 I won’t have to drive
By your house on my way home.
By day 92, if I run into you,
It won’t kill me if you’re not alone.
By the end of September, I’ll barely remember
How hard this first night was,
When it was all I could do to try to get through
Day one.

CHORUS
I can’t skip the pain – I can’t stop my mind,
So I’ll just take one at a time.
It might even be more than a year, maybe four
Before the damage comes undone.
But I’ll get over you if I just get through
Day one.

BRIDGE
There comes a time when the sting of goodbye
Won’t be hanging in every room.
Could be fall, could be summer, don’t know the number –
But it can’t come too soon.

CHORUS
I can’t skip the pain – I can’t stop my mind,
So I’ll just take one at a time.
It might even be more than a year, maybe four
Before the damage comes undone.
But I’ll get over you if I just get through
Day one.

And I’ll see the lesson – call it a blessing
When that day finally comes.
You’ll just be someone I knew if I can get through
Day one.
