Talk: The Day That Never Happened (song)


I've been working on deciphering the lyrics, and here's what I have so far:

  • The first line appears to be simply "The day that never happened."
  • Second line: I walked up to (?)
  • Third line: I never thought (I would find this?) here today.
  • Fourth line: I walked up to the (house and I was home?)
  • Fifth line: (?) I prefer to know.
  • Sixth line: I feel it in your (hair?), I feel it (?) (any day?)
  • Seventh line: Like a (boy?) that's always (learning?), (?) falls away.
    That's all I can work out so far after spending a good few minutes listening to the song over and over again with noise cancelling headphones.
    Other phrases I have noted down are "and the nights", "hand in hand", "But you would only try to (?)" and "only here to say". Not sure if they fit in at all, but I had them written down.

More progress:
The day that never happened
I w(?)ed up to (?) (?) (?) same/say
But never thought I would find this here today
I walked up to the house and I was home
(?) (?) other (?) (?) I prefer to know/hold

I feel it in your (?) I feel your (?) (?)
Like a boy that's always learning
I grew (?) and (?) away
In my eyes(?) (?) what's the point (?) I go by
In the days (?) (?) the nights and I know (?) (?) underhand(?)

(?) the days (?)
Sorry, (?) (?) (?) (?) (?) to do
But you would only try to hide

But I (?) (?) (?) (?)

(?) I was only right to say(?)

As I went through the song, I became a bit more unsure about some of my previous lyric transcriptions, so some of this is different to before.

I think I'm starting to make some progress with the lyrics. It's taken several nights of playing the song back at half-speed, trying to cut some of the background noise out, but I think I'm starting to get somewhere.
