Story

This song was originally created in a courtyard opposite the beach, on a beautiful summer's day in Sydney. As part of a Songwriting retreat you're randomly put together to try and write something. This day I worked with a brilliant guitarist and vocalist—Marcel Viera and Alison Lenton-Murphy, respectively. We briefly discussed a few ideas and then as Marcel started strumming a melody, Alison and I began throwing around random thoughts and phrases as they came to mind, which seemed to piece together quite naturally.

 

Alison has since re-recorded the song in a way I'd describe as sending out warm and fuzzy, feel-good vibes. Love the clapping throughout—makes me want to share a beach camp fire, singing way into the night!

Lyrics

V1

I know you're a phone call away

Whispers are nice but don't satisfy me

I'm crossing off another day

V2

There’ll be bacon and eggs on the grill

And your coffee'll be good and strong like you like it

I wonder if you're sleeping still

CHORUS/TAG

I need one lazy day

One lazy day

You've been too long away

Save Sunday for me

V3

I wonder where you'll be tonight

I can't keep track and it's getting harder

I ache to feel your touch excite me

CHORUS/TAG

I need one lazy day

One lazy day

You've been too long away

Save Sunday for me

Bridge

Hurry home so you can save me

Count the weekdays back to lazy

You mean more than Thursday, payday

Without you I'm going crazy

CHORUS/TAG/OUTRO - to fade

One lazy day

One lazy day

You've been too long away

Save Sunday for me

One lazy day

Save Sunday for me (one lazy day)

Save Sunday for me (one lazy day)

Save Sunday for me (one lazy day)
