Descendents - One More Day Lyrics




Spent the last years
In denial of my grief
Because you hated me
Anyone could see
I'll always wonder
What I meant to you
And why you hated me
What I did to you

I can't get anywhere
Pretending that I don't care
Lying to everyone I see
When the only thing I needed was

One more day like yesterday
I'd pick you up, you'd put me down
Wish you were still around
For one more day like yesterday
With you

And in the end
We didn't have a thing to say
Still those games to play
Then you passed away
I'll always wonder
Why you had to leave
Why you hated me
Then laid the blame on me

Cold antiseptic stares
The smell of the sickroom air
Yeah, I let you go down there
The only child
Who never cared about

One more day like yesterday
I'd pick you up, You'd put me down
Wish you were still around
For one more day like yesterday
With you

I'll always wonder
If I could have meant more to you
I'll always wonder
If I could have done more for you
How could I just turn my back
How could I just walk away
How could I just close my eyes
And watch you die

We never got along
We never got a chance
To sing our song of love

I loved my daddy boy
Did you love your boy?
Oh, you feel so warm to me now
But it's cold in this room
Tomorrow they'll put you
In the ground
Then there's nothing I can
ever do to have

One more day like yesterday
I'd pick you up, you'd put me down
Wish you were still around
For one more day like yesterday
With you

Descendents One More Day Comments
  1. Des Price

    Love you Mom with all my heart.RIP.08-09-19 💓

  2. Tommy Solomon

    My dad died of cancer about a year ago, on birthday. This song describes so well the relationship we had. Growing up, I was a rebellious, arrogant, and super sarcastic kid. Peobably coulda had a better life if I took shit seriously. But my dad was always pushing me to be a better man. I’m sorry I only started pushing myself after I graduated and everything. Love ya, dad. Just hope what I been doing since last august has made you happy, at least.

    Pete Mourilyan

    He's proud

  3. Tommy Solomon

    This song has been much harder to listen to since my dad died.... but I keep coming back because I wish I could have one more day with him like I did before he was put in a vegetative state because of cancer

  4. Slave in Hell

    This album was very underrated and forgotten by many. I didn't forget; this was a great album. ☺

  8. Penguator432

    You just left us out of nowhere. No one saw it coming. We didn't even have a chance to say goodbye. Damn you, why?

    I miss you so fucking much Dad.

  15. Ned

    this song makes me so sad

  16. James Hampton

    I'm sorry, but this song is too dark for me. I mean, it's great it has helped people through tough times, but it's a bit too dark for these guys...And this is coming from the guy who listens to Hypercaffium Spazzinate everyday. :|

    More consistent songwriting to be found on I Don't Want To Grow Up.

    BigEd45EX

    I Don't Want To Grow Up and Cool To Be You are my favorites! Liveage also totally rips.

    A Wild Doggo

    Milo Goes to College, All, and Everything Sucks are my top 3.

    fullskapunk alchemist

    Fat mile said he likes it more than Everything Sucks

    fullskapunk alchemist

    Somehow Mike corrected to mile

    Aleksandra Jankowska

    Thanks! :) I'm a bit late but I hope it doesn't matter ;D

    Supah Gualtah

    +Aleksandra Jankowska no problem mate !

    Francisco Silva

    AMO-TE <3 <3

  32. sean Decastro

    great song so sad ...sorry Bill.

  33. Wilhelms Cream

    Wish you were still around... for one more day :(

  34. bean6344

    I have been a Descendents fan since 1985 when I first heard Silly Girl.  I never new the story behind this song until I watched Filmage.  My heart goes out to Bill.   I can never listen to this again the same way I did before I knew the whole story.

  35. Felipe Gonzalez

    I dont understand why this video has such a low quantity of views... One of the best songs of this awesome band.

    Joseph Bayerle

    Something is automatically bad if it's popular? Just understand that bands like sex pistols, ramones, clash (basically all your entry level punk bands) are very popular. Lou Reed is insanely popular and he is a musical genius and his music pieces of art.

    Rich Lucchesi

    Joseph Bayerle what? Hes asking why this doesnt have more views

  36. Cesar Peralta

    I dedicate this song to someone special, she knows who she is.

    Cesar Peralta

    Yeah well, I was feeling a bit depressed.

    David Born

    its good dude. 

    Karva Sylinteri

    Its actually bill (drummer)'s dad

    Mr.Armenian

    @Karva Sylinteri Listening to a song can mean something else to someone though. It doesn't have to be about what the singer is talkign about.

    Karva Sylinteri

    @Brandon chilian I know, but they talked about the story of this song, so i said what it was about, bit since i heard that drummer thing, i started listen this diffrently.

  37. jesse garza

    I love you, Amber Madelyn Kelley with all of my heart

  38. ALLROY1420

    Bill wrote the song about his father after taking care of him while he was sick and him passing away.

  39. -A-NTIFA

    real american song!

  40. zimshowfan

    Descendents rule!

  41. Michael Terry

    i think that's chad price chiming in with "like yesterday with you" at the end

  42. cervece41

    This one is a complete masterpiece !

  43. Maria Allen

    this song brings me to tears every time

  44. Maria Allen

    best descendents song ever

  45. konane

    sounds like the story of my life bro, same exact story your trying to convey

  46. Brutal ako

    this is one of my favorite :D

  47. sabrina t

    So I'm a noob when it comes to the Descendents. So far, this is probably my favorite song by them, but I can never listen to it too much without getting emotional. Still a great song though.

  48. DamnDyD

    @Burdman224: I totaly understand you. I'm in this shit right now! For a week now. The worst week in my life. So glad to have Descendents songs to give me hope!

  49. oliver sharpe

    cant explain how stoked i am to them live

  50. The Stone Eye

    @VivaArsenal4 I just did this 2 months ago, loved her... Giving her space away and maybe things will come back.. Its the worst pain.

  51. CircleOne24

    @greens618 the song is about his old man.

  52. kevinsmellls

    @ewilsonlds Just curious but why?

  53. Rhys Canty

    @HipHipForChe no its his mouth

  54. BPRodifan

    Fucking Descendents and their tendency for their songs to relate to me more and more.

  55. Anicar Cabrera

    the best song

  56. evilfinchman

    this song gets me very emotional for some reason

  57. dadaroromeme

    "One more day with you"

    Awesome some, Awesome lyrics

  58. Ryan Wilson

    I like this song, but only until the 2 minute mark. At that point I have to turn it off.

  59. Rob Lanterman

    obviously this doesnt sound exactly like milo goes to college, but bands mature, and this is still descendents. this isn't a sell out song. it sounds like them

  60. Thunder

    honestly, the descendents continue to write songs that both the young and old can relate to.

  61. Adam Lonsdale

    'Merican or Blast off for me
    And i love this album

  62. kook1028

    i think cool to be you is their best album....so this is prolly my fav song
