A Bad Day

Below are the lyrics of the song “Bad Day” by Daniel Powter. The song talks about the moments in life when things don’t go the way we want it. It’s describing exactly what you could do when hitting a low. I believe it is important to recognise these moments and how we react to them.

You always have a choice, let the mood determine your action and make it a bad day. Not only for you but even for others who depend on you. Or you can see this as an opportunity – and I know that is hard – an opportunity to make this a supreme moment. A moment where you recognise that something went wrong because of a reason. A reason that you can influence, an action that you missed or mis-timed, a conversation that you should have had but dismissed as too hard.

A Bad Day? Now is the time to make amends. Now is the time to reflect on what caused it and what can you do from here getting back on track. It’s your choice to having a bad day or make it an opportunity.

Listen to the song and make sure your magic isn’t lost.

Bad Day


Where is the moment we needed the most
You kick up the leaves and the magic is lost
They tell me your blue skies fade to gray
They tell me your passion’s gone away
And I don’t need no carryin’ onYou stand in the line just to hit a new low
You’re faking a smile with the coffee you go
You tell me your life’s been way off line
You’re falling to pieces every time
And I don’t need no carryin’ on

Because you had a bad day
You’re taking one down
You sing a sad song just to turn it around
You say you don’t know
You tell me don’t lie
You work at a smile and you go for a ride
You had a bad day
The camera don’t lie
You’re coming back down and you really don’t mind
You had a bad day
You had a bad day

Will you need a blue sky holiday?
The point is they laugh at what you say
And I don’t need no carryin’ on

You had a bad day
You’re taking one down
You sing a sad song just to turn it around
You say you don’t know
You tell me don’t lie
You work at a smile and you go for a ride
You had a bad day
The camera don’t lie
You’re coming back down and you really don’t mind
You had a bad day

(Oooh.. a holiday..)

Sometimes the system goes on the blink
And the whole thing turns out wrong
You might not make it back and you know
That you could be well oh that strong
And I’m not wrong

(yeah…)

So where is the passion when you need it the most
Oh you and I
You kick up the leaves and the magic is lost

Cause you had a bad day
You’re taking one down
You sing a sad song just to turn it around
You say you don’t know
You tell me don’t lie
You work at a smile and you go for a ride
You had a bad day
You’ve seen what you like
And how does it feel for one more time
You had a bad day
You had a bad day
