Another Day Of Sun lyrics by Emma Stone

 

Another Day Of Sun Song Lyrics


[Intro: First Girl]
Ba-ba-da-ba da-ba-da-ba
Ba-ba-ba ba-da-ba-da-ba
Ba-ba-ba ba
[Verse 1: First Girl]
I think about that day
I left him at a Greyhound station
West of Santa Fé
We were seventeen, but he was sweet and it was true
Still I did what I had to do
'Cause I just knew
Summer: Sunday nights
We'd sink into our seats
Right as they dimmed out all the lights
A Technicolor world made out of music and machine
It called me to be on that screen
And live inside each scene
[Pre-Chorus 1: First Girl & First Man]
Without a nickel to my name
Hopped a bus, here I came
Could be brave or just insane
[First Girl, First Man & Second Man]
We'll have to see
[First Girl]
'Cause maybe in that sleepy town
He'll sit one day, the lights are down
He'll see my face and think of how he...
[First Girl, First Man, Second Man & Dancers]
...used to know me
[Chorus: All]
Climb these hills
I'm reaching for the heights
And chasing all the lights that shine
And when they let you down
You'll get up off the ground
'Cause morning rolls around
And it's another day of sun
[Verse 2: Young Man]
I hear 'em ev'ry day
The rhythms in the canyons
That'll never fade away
The ballads in the barrooms
Left by those who came before
They say "you gotta want it more"
So I bang on ev'ry door
[Pre-Chorus 2: Second Girl]
And even when the answer's "no"
Or when my money's running low
The dusty mic and neon glow
Are all I need
[Young Man]
And someday as I sing my song
A small-town kid'll come along
[Second Girl & Young Man]
That'll be the thing to push him on and go go
[Chorus: All]
Climb these hills
I'm reaching for the heights
And chasing all the lights that shine
And when they let you down
You'll get up off the ground
'Cause morning rolls around
And it's another day of sun
[Instrumental Break]
[Bridge: First Girl]
And when they let you down
The morning rolls around
[All]
It's another day of sun
It's another day of sun
It's another day of sun
It's another day of sun
Just another day of sun
It's another day of sun
Another day has just begun
It's another day of sun
[Outro]
It's another day of sun



Song meaning

June, 20th 2017
"Bling-Bling" by Shiny is a song that dives into themes of self-worth, vanity, and the alure of external appearances. The lyrics tell the story of Tamatoa, a character who was once a "drab little crab" but has transfformed into someone who prides himself on his glamorous and shiny exterior.

The opening lines depict Tamatoa’s transformation from his past self, were he was unappy and unremarkable, to his current state where he is recognized as an artist, possibly hinting at the art of creating an appealing façade. This transformation is linked to his accumulation of shiny treasures, suggesting a belief that external adornment brings value and respect.

Tamatoa mocks the advice often given by elders to "listen to your heart" and "follow your inner voice," labeling it as lies. This cynicism towards inner values over external glitter points to a shallow understanding of worth, implying that being visually dazzling, like "a treasure from a sunken pirate wreck," is what truly matters.

The chorus, with its repetitive focus on being shiny and sparkling like jewels, reinforces Tamatoa’s obsession with surface-level beauty. He views his glittering appearance as a source of power and superiority, even equating it to being fearsome and invincible.

However, the song also reveals the underlying insecurity and loneliness of Tamatoa. His mention of "fruits de mer," a metaphor for his prey, hints at a predatory nature, possibly stemming from his need to assert dominance or mask his inadequacies. His references to Maui, another character, highlight a sense of rivalry and a need to prove himself superior.

Overall, "Bling-Bling" delves into the pitfalls of equating self-worth with external appearances and material possessions. It portrays a character who, in his pursuit of shining on the outside, overlooks the importance of inner values and genuine self-worth. The song serves as a critique of superficiality and the empty fulfillment that comes with it.

What is remarkable – the scene to this dance song was shot in two days, which is so lengthy. But it worth that, you know.
This scene follows the opening sequence of the film after the heroes meet. Now it is totally understood why this movie is loved by all spectators who have seen it by the time. Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling have managed to recreate those almost forgotten spirits of 1970ies or even 1960ies (while putting them in today’s reality) and have done a tremendous job to let us see this invigorating picture of how their love evolves.
Speaking particularly about this song, ‘Another Day Of Sun,’ it is worth noting that this is made by as much as hundred people on the stage and the entire filming process took 2 days (of which we already have been surprised about). The essence of this song is the stories intertwined. The story is told by a girl and a boy. It is mostly about their dreams, their fantasies, and their goals in life that they want to achieve. For example, Emma Stone tells about the dimmed light, about the music and the screen, on which someday she wants to be. But before the speech about the acting career of her takes place, she says about how wondrous it can be when you seat in the movie theater and almost immediately understand that it is your destiny is sitting in the chair nearby. Mrs. Stone is wondering how it can be possible at all. The imagination of Mrs. Stone draws the picture of big ballroom when she dances with him dressed nicely and neatly. She says that in the moments like this all she needs is just the disk, the microphone turned on and the neon glowing.
In the meantime, in the second verse, her partner tells about how he was reaching for the heights and chasing for the lights that shone on him. After they met, he tells it is another day of sun is seems for him, as the morning comes and shines on her face. If you are watching the clip on YouTube that is made of sequences of the film moments, you may clearly and distinctively run through the story of their relationship. No wonder that possessing such remarkable and outstanding lyrics with absolutely powerful music many of critics told about this movie as our-days’ rebirth of classical Broadway musicals. The critics that wrote about this musical film in their articles, told that these heroes are inpatient throwbacks and their story of acquaintance is nothing more but pure miracle of our days.
It is the second song of a film in the sequence. It tells about Sebastian Wilder, a hero of Ryan Gosling who meets Mia Dolan, a hero of Mrs. Stone. They both are dreamers. She is the beginning actress in her 30+ (starting late) and he is the beginning jazz player who wants to arrange his own jazz club but waits until jazz becomes popular again (if ever). It is the story of bright relations of two developing today, which casts the memories of times when Broadway musicals were extremely popular, a half-century ago. But this is not just another pastiche love story that the evolves according to canons because it has to. It is a love story that evolves because Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone have an incredible sensitivity to realize and to depict the real life in the way how would it actually unrolled.
