“Because I know today has been the most perfect day I’ve ever seen”

I was stuck in traffic this morning, and for some reason started thinking of this song. Haven’t listen to itĀ for ages, but I was suddenly hearing that last verse in my head over and over again.

Videotape (Radiohead)

When I’m at the pearly gates
This’ll be on my videotape
My videotape
My videotape

When Mephistopheles is just beneath
And he’s reaching up to grab me

This is one for the good days
And I have it all here
In red blue green
In red blue green

You are my center when I spin away
Out of control on videotape
On videotape

This is my way of saying goodbye
Because I can’t do it face to face
So I’m talking to you after it’s too late from my videotape

No matter what happens now
I won’t be afraid
Because I know today has been the most perfect day I’ve ever seen

This is the version I like best – Thom Yorke alone on piano. The lyrics is slightly different than the album version.
