Matisyahu 1

Sometimes I lay
Under the moon
And thank God I’m breathing
Then I pray
Don’t take me soon
‘Cause I am here for a reason

Sometimes in my tears I drown
But I never let it get me down
So when negativity surrounds

 I know some day it’ll all turn around because…

All my life I’ve been waiting for
I’ve been praying for
For the people to say
That we don’t wanna fight no more
There will be no more wars
And our children will play
One day [6x]

It’s not about
Win or lose
‘Cause we all lose
When they feed on the souls of the innocent
Blood-drenched pavement
Keep on moving  though the waters stay raging

In this maze you can lose your way (your way)
It might drive you crazy but don’t let it faze you, no way (no  way)

Matisyahu 4
“One Day” is a song by Jewish reggae singer Matisyahu from his third album Light. The song expresses a hope for an end to violence and a prayer for a new era of peace and understanding.

The song was used extensively as the theme song for NBC’s Countdown to Vancouver Olympics campaign. The song continued to be used during NBC’s Olympic broadcasts, from soundtracking montages to scoring bumpers. Matisyahu explained to MTV News that even though it wasn’t written expressly for the games, the themes and goals of the track ended up applying perfectly. “I wanted to write a song that was an accessible global anthem for hope and peace,” he told MTV News. “I don’t know exactly how it came about, but somebody heard it and thought it would be a good fit.”

Matisyahu tells Spinner. “It is an anthem of hope with a big beat, the kind of song that makes you bob your head and open your heart at the same time.” In an interview with Matisyahu “‘One Day’ is the song I’ve been wanting to make since I started my career,”
