Moby - The Day Lyrics

I try to know when to leave
She sits in the bedroom and grieves
There's a sequence that starts all again
She can't get up anymore with the pain
The combination of these drugs
Has left her hopeless and lost
She wants to count the ways
But she can't count again

I will be right here
'Til all the pain
Just disappear
I will always stay
'Til all this light
Just kills the day

I strangle my words
Once, I tried a thousand times
Slaughtered like Gods
When the silver shines so hard
I tried to poison my life
Always dreaming of the edge of the knife
She always looked backwards
And I can sit here for even ten minutes or more


Oh hold on
Oh hold on
Oh hold on
Just try again


Oh hold on
Oh hold on
Oh hold on
Just try again

    The movie Trance. Not sure if it was the song or the full frontal nudity of Rosario Dawson walking as this song plays. I was in a Trance: a half-conscious state characterized by an absence of response to external stimuli, typically as induced by hypnosis or entered by a medium.

    I was watching the movie Trance. In the middle of the movie started this song... It was so powerfull, and in Mobys style, i just knew it was his. I needed to find this song. 2 minutes later, i'm here, fulfilled. Thank you Moby, for one more fucking brilliant song.

    The original version of the song is Bleu Noir by french singer Mylène Farmer

    @Philippe Nadeau The song was written and produced by Moby with lyrics by Farmer.

    my 1st daughter is battling Pain meds and she Swears that she needs them. Fibro, Lupus,sjogren's, Lifes battle. A Father can and will believe alot, however, a father can FEEL something inside. Maybe it's the battle lasted 16 yrs.The feeling of being responsible does not override the feeling of HOPE that a parent has for his children. Things look different when you COME CLEAN.Dad

    el dolor de hoy es el amor del futuro...the pain today is the love in the future...

  40. deema neema


  41. Nope Nothing

    I don't understand why Moby makes songs like "The Day", "Go", "Twin Peaks" ost, etc but is still considered "underground", I must say.

    moby is best

  53. AsLaN Mekhtiev

    Wonderful, thank you!

  54. Kevin Calago

    This song is about the pain of an hospitalized person, and partially about the pain of his family and friends. The hospital is a horrible place for the dying person, who just wants to leave this world.

    richard knox

    'theres a sequence that starts all over again' i think hes refering to cheyne stoking breathing pattern, when you have brain damage you breathe rpaidly for 10-12 breaths deeply then dont breath for around 8 or 9 breaths time, its your body knowing its shutting down, it can be distressing for the family the patient doesnt know

    richard knox

    hospitals should not be for the dying, i wanna die in ma bed with a good Merlot a spliff and probably a handful of sleepers just to make sure

    Nelson Costa

    It is about his grandmother.

  55. lovekitty3

    I listen to this over and over.  Love this song.

    iris magnolia Ledesma

  56. jbinside

    Je pense à toi maman, où que tu sois, tu es toujours près de moi.

    Je pense à toi maman, où que tu sois, tu es toujours près de moi.

  58. Patrick Ichitawa

    Deeply sensitive and beautiful, thank you Moby

  59. immortalis1001

    Moby, you feature so much of Christian imagery in your videos, yet, you are way too smart to be a Christian so please, be yourself tonight. (yes shamelessly stolen from Eurythmics)

    Randy Boyd

  73. Cynthia Smith

    My mother is at the ICU at this moment, and the only thing that is giving me some comfort is this song.  I wish she could hear it.

    Suzanna Danna from Indiana

    +wd harvey IMO, Moby's video's can be dark @ times....not his music.

    Suzanna Danna from Indiana

    +wd harvey Sorry for your loss.

    wd harvey

    @Suzanna Danna from Indiana And, I do agree.  His music seems to start up kind of down and lonely, but, closer to the end, it gets inspirational  and emotional.  his videos seem to really work the music to something you might not have heard in the recording.....I like that difference, and I don't usually like music videos.

  78. William Sousa


  79. snoutout

    Why is Moby singing like David Bowie? This video is awesome, nonetheless.

  80. Damith Wanigasekera

    trance what a film and what timing for the song 

    Jim Bean

    Damith Wanigasekera Trance was a 5 star movie.The 3 main leads was acting at their finest .

  81. 2437MT

    .we live in a world where more and more sin is called good and good is called evil. Inviolable rights and values are trampled on, ridiculed. Bad things and patterns are shown as something glorious. Evil loses, there will be no sin in the universe and the effects of sin as death, niepsrawiedliwość, illnesses, rebellion, hatred, murder, adultery, betrayal, and other ....... Youtube: Archaeological Evidence that Proves the Bible is True _____ Yt : ,,Falling plates "

    The Dragonwithin

    everything proves the bible is not true. logic, reasoning and more are the basics.... wake up and smell reality you fools.


    @The Dragonwithin Says the leftist fool. Stay in denial. Your statement makes no logical sense either. You have no evidence.

  82. Gino Fáctàp

    thank you Trance, this is beautiful.

  83. Abuonprezo

    Very beautiful song... but the video is so ugly

  84. Andrei Popov
