One Day at a Time

The 15th song on UniversalDice's new rock opera CD "birth, love, hate, death" is "One Day at a Time". This song exists for a number or reasons, and having a reason for writing a particular song is always important to me.

This song was necessary to advance the story of the rock opera after the tragedy of the young man's death in "Sleeping Alone." It was meant to explain the aftermath of Danielle's life and her vow "to make him" proud. Having the story-line of these tragic lovers made it easier to come up with ideas for songs. This song was one of the easiest to write because it was obvious that she needed to honor him for saving her life by saving her own life on her own.

The line "One Day at a Time" is a saying that those with addictive personalities often use to get through another day. Contemplating that saying led me to hearing a melody within those words and lyrics and led to the writing of the music to the song. It's always best, for me, when words and music seem to come together simultaneously.

Just as "Sleeping Alone" was a homage to the Beatles second side of "Abbey Road," this song is a homage to the Beatles creative precision in songs like "Hey Prudence." Even though there is precision, their songs are never mechanical and their melodies soar. That's what I was shooting for. Please give "One Day at a Time" a listen.

(Sung by the character Danielle)

One Day at a Time (c) G. Dantone 2016

I don’t know if it makes any sense
All I know is I have this second chance
I can feel your hand in mine
I’ll make you proud
One day at a time
My hands are clean and my head is clear
This is for me and it’s for you dear
I see your face in the window of my mind
I’ll make you proud
One day at a …

Time, don’t make me forget about you
Time, I’ll never be alone with you or grow old with you

Years go by but it’s like yesterday
I may get lost but I’ll find some other way
I hear your voice in a breeze it sounds so fine
I’ll make you proud
One day at a …

Time, don’t make me forget about you
Time, I’ll never be alone with you or grow old with you

I don’t know if it makes any sense
All I know is I have this second chance
I can feel your hand in mine
I’ll make you proud
One day at a time

    Employee satisfaction is an interesting issue among office directors and entrepreneurs today and keeping in mind that the reasons for low spirit are frequently fervently discussed, as a rule, it can now and then be followed back to helpless administration CLIK HERE.
