About the Song..... 
"Day After Day," the first track from Photograph Smile, was released as the first single on 11 May 1998 in Europe. The song was also featured in the opening credits of the 1998 movie "Music From Another Room." Julian was asked permission to use the song in the film and ended up naming his record company after the film's title. "Day After Day" can also be found on a CD sampler used for promotion in the United States and the video appears on some of the I Don't Wanna Know Singles. Incidentally, Julian's 1991 hit "Saltwater" was  also co-written with Mark Spiro.

Many of Julian's songs draw on his own experiences.   In particular, Julian says this song draws on his longest relationship. "We were together four years. I thought I was going to settle down and get married but then the promo tour hell for the last album took me away for over a year and it destroyed us. And I can tell you, if and when I fall in love again, never again shall I let career over-rule love." -Julian Lennon on "Day After Day"

The Lyrics

I have walked through the fire as an ordinary man
and if I die, I die in peace, part of all that God has planned,
'cos I believe in you and the best is yet to come,
you've been alone it's true, daddy's work is never done.
In my dreams, every night, I see the waves upon the sand
and you and I walk alone and there's a ring upon your hand.
Yes I believe in you and if my prayers are answered now,
I'm coming back , to you, I'm gonna find a way somehow.

I'm making my way, each morning I pray for you,
day after day,
I'll turn every stone, until I get home to you,
day after day.

Where you are is all there is, the only place I want to be
and love is war and war is cold, when you're so far across the sea.
still I'm alive, still in love, I hope this letter finds you well,
through the blood, through the flames, I can hear those wedding bells.

I'm making my way, each morning I pray for you,
day after day,
I'll turn every stone, until I get home to you,
day after day.

Darling you know the winds of peace are blowing,
(they say the answers written in the wind)
still I can hear the fallen angels singing,
(our love is stronger than the million miles that separate us)

I'm making my way, each morning I pray for you,
day after day,
I'll turn every stone, until I get home to you,
day after day....
