Song of the Day #4,034: ‘Cherish the Day’ – Sade

‘Cherish the Day’ is the fourth Sade song to show up on Random Weekends, and the second in a little more than a month (‘The Sweetest Taboo’ had its day back in June).

This song was the fourth single from Sade’s 1992 album Love Deluxe, which also featured the excellent ‘No Ordinary Love’ and ‘Kiss of Life.’ All of those songs create such a gorgeous, seductive mood.

Now, here’s the obligatory reminder that Sade is the name of the (excellent) band, and Sade Adu is the lead singer.

[Verse 1]
You’re ruling the way that I move
And I breathe your air
You only can rescue me
This is my prayer
If you were mine
If you were mine
I wouldn’t want to go to heaven

[Chorus]
Cherish the day
I won’t go astray
I won’t be afraid
You won’t catch me running
You’re ruling the way that I move
You take my air
You show me how deep love can be

[Verse 2]
You’re ruling the way that I move
And I breathe your air
You only can rescue me
This is my prayer

[Chorus]
Cherish the Day
I won’t go astray
I won’t be afraid
You won’t catch me running
Cherish the Day
I won’t go astray
I won’t be afraid
Won’t run away

[Bridge]
You show me how deep love can be
You show me how deep love can be
This is my prayer

[Chorus]
Cherish the Day
I won’t go astray
I won’t be afraid
Won’t run away
Won’t shy

Cherish the Day
I won’t go astray

I Cherish the Day
I Cherish the Day
I Cherish the Day
I Cherish the Day
I Cherish the Day
