Save the Day

Been enjoying Kate Campbell's latest album, Save the Day, this weekend. I have the lyrics from the title track rattling around in my head now. Kinda puts a lot of stuff into perspective. What would it take to save the day for you?

SAVE THE DAY

What’s it gonna take to save the day
What you gonna need to feel okay
If you close your eyes what would you pray
What’s it gonna take to save the day

I had a friend who spent his life
Trying to win the lottery
He just knew that a million bucks
Would put an end to his misery
Meanwhile the farmer living down the road
Only wanted a drop of rain

What’s it gonna take to save the day
What you gonna need to feel okay
If you close your eyes what would you pray
What’s it gonna take to save the day

For some people it’s a brand new car
For some it’s just a parking space
A little water in the desert sun
Or champagne by the case
A big mansion in the Hamptons
Or just a warm place to sleep tonight

What’s it gonna take to save the day
What you gonna need to feel okay
If you close your eyes what would you pray
What’s it gonna take to save the day

A Vanderbilt or an old Ford Van
A cup of soup or Superman

What’s it gonna take to save the day
What you gonna need to feel okay
If you close your eyes what would you pray
What’s it gonna take to save the day

What’s it gonna take to save the day
What you gonna need to feel okay
If you close your eyes what would you pray
What’s it gonna take to save the day

If I ask you now what would you say
What’s it gonna take to save the day
