Dido’s lyrics

Hello people!

Let’s study some music’s lyric.

I selected a beautiful one, that I like very much. If it’s possible, take a look in my "miniguide" of learning with music.



Thank You



My tea's gone cold,  ----> present perfect (recent past action)
I'm wondering why  *1
I got out of bed at all  *2 
The morning rain clouds up my window  *3
And I can't see at all  *2 
And even if I could it'd all be gray,  *4
But your picture on my wall
It reminds me that it's not so bad
It's not so bad

I drank too much last night, got bills to pay
My head just feels in pain  *5
I missed the bus and there'll be hell today
I'm late for work again
And even if I'm there,  *4
they'll all imply that I might not last the day  *6
And then you call me and it's not so bad
It's not so bad and

I want to thank you for giving me the best day of my life
Oh just to be with you is having the best day of my life

Push the door, I'm home at last  *7 
And I'm soaking through and through  *8
Then you handed me a towel and all I see is you  *9
And even if my house falls down now I wouldn't have a clue  *10
Because you're near me and

I want to thank you for giving me the best day of my life
Oh just to be with you is having the best day of my life
