Description
Just another day... I didn't want the cold weather to bring me down, so the only way to beat it is write a song. I was listening to Bruno Mars and I thought I'd like to sing a song the way he does... Just his voice and a plain piano in the background...

Lyrics
JUST ANOTHER DAY (Written and performed by Leon)

The ring of the clock wakes you up
You wonder if you should make it stop
The rays of morning flowing in
You often think where is this going

Take a look outside beyond the curtain
There is nothing right now that is yet certain
Drink your coffee and breathe life on a new day
You can only wish that things will go your way

Drive away the chill and seize the day
Face the challenge so you wanna pray
Build a path for you to trek if you don't wanna stay
Smell the hope and pick flowers on your way

I post a little smile and a story on my facebook
There's some laughter and some tears for anyone who'd look
Write a message of cheer to your friends on twitter
A hope and a prayer that makes your heart flutter

Drive away the chill and seize the day
Face the challenge so you wanna pray
Build a path for you to trek if you don't wanna stay
Smell the hope and pick flowers on your way

Life is never always the same
Every sunrise gives you a new beginning
Love will always take you in like a game
It's a call for you to keep on winning

Drive away the chill and seize the day
Face the challenge so you wanna pray
Build a path for you to trek if you don't wanna stay
Smell the hope and pick flowers on your way

I post a little smile and a story on my facebook
There's some laughter and some tears for anyone who'd look
Write a message of cheer to your friends on twitter
A hope and a prayer that makes your heart flutter

The ring of the clock wakes you up
You wonder if you should make it stop
The rays of morning flowing in
You often think where is this going

Man, piano and microphone!
Your voice still gives me goosebumps! Probably not a style I'd normally listen to, but incredibly well done. I saw Bruno Mars for the first time on TV a few nights ago, and he is also pretty impressive for sure.
Best from Oz,
Neil

Terrific!
You have a sensational voice--with pipes like that all you need is a piano because you've nothing to hide. This is excellent! I see you live in Minneapolis--I just moved from there to Birmingham Alabama after living there 20 years. Sorry we never got to meet while I was there. Thanks for the really fine work Leon!

Thanks...
... for listening to this humble song. I still keep listening to our Empty Rooms collab. Hopefully we can have another song together again sometime soon. Just been busy of late, but my love for music never dies of course.

I listen to a lot of your songs. You are prolific and never seem to run out of ways to make your songs sounding fresh. I learn a lot from you just by listening to your compositions.

Thanks, man!
Thanks for appreciating my singing. Inspiration is what enhances the voice. There are days my voice can't carry a tune if I am not feeling it at all.

Just another day
Great voice - powerful, emotive, wide range. Simple piano works well, although more instruments wouldn't hurt, I think (drums and bass for example). Impressive performance!

THanks!
I was hoping to come up with a full orchestral arrangement soon. I had violins and bass added to this originally, but I felt it was good to try a bare arrangement first then build from there. THanks so much for listening and appreciating it.

Another day
Your voice (especially in the high range) slightly reminds me of another singer who had a song with the same title as this one. You have a very powerful voice, and great songwriting talent... I also like the way this song ends. Cheers.

Thanks for listening.
I think you are referring to John Secada, whose song Just Another Day is one of my staple songs on karaoke nights. haha. Thanks for the comparison. I was feeling a bit down and sad on a cold snowy day in spring, and this song helped uplift me, reminding myself that life is more than just the weather. :-)

Great to hear another song from you, Leon. You have a majestic, mesmerising voice and this simple arrangement allows it full emotive reign. Thanks, Peter.

THanks...
...for your tireless appreciation of my music and singing. I try to bring some emotion to my voice, but there are days when I'm not inspired and it would sound very mechanical and simply technical and bland. It sounds best when I have some emotions overwhelming me that day.

Hi, Mo
It's been a while. I've been a bit out of the loop because of work and stuff, but my love for music always brings me back here, no matter what. Thanks for your uplifting comments. I do have a lot of catching up to do with the rest of the guys here.

Glad to hear you're still in fine voice, Leon. The emotionally-filled, soaring vocals still ring load and clear. ;)
