Hey everybody. Sorry about the leave of absence. For all of the Violar readers, I'll be back with the next chapter before Wednesday. I just got writer's block. Sorry. Anyway, this songfic has been nagging at me for a long time, and I've just decided to publish it on here now. It's called Another Day. Another Day is a song from my favorite movie, Rent (which is the movie version of a broadway show). This songfic is a whole lot better to read if you have the song playing in the background. So if you can, open up a window and go to Google Video or Youtube or something and start playing it as you read. Rent is actually a great movie, and if you haven't seen it, you should definitely go rent it now. In the movie, Mimi and Roger are fighting. Mimi is played by Rosario Dawson, and Roger is played by Adam Pascal.

Also, it will say Mimi & Others near the bottom of the song. In the movie, some of the other characters come up behind her and back her up. So, yeah… enjoy.

Another Day

"Why won't you change me?" Bella asked randomly one day in Edward's car. Edward didn't look up, but his expression changed to a grim frown.

ROGER
Who do you think you are?
Barging in on me and my guitar
Little girl -- hey
The door is that way
You better go you know
The fire's out anyway

"I thought we agreed not to talk about this. Carlisle is going to change you after graduation."

ROGER
Take your powder -- take your candle
Your sweet whisper
I just can't handle
Well take your hair in the moonlight
Your brown eyes -- goodbye, goodnight

"Yeah, but that's months away. I want to be with you forever as soon as I can." Edward sighed.

ROGER
I should tell you I should tell you
I should tell you I should -- no!

"Look, you have no idea how much you mean to me. I wouldn't be able to see you in so much pain."

ROGER
Another time -- another place
Our temperature would climb
There'd be a long embrace
We'd do another dance
It'd be another play
Looking for romance?
Come back another day
Another day

"It's not always about you, Edward. Why can't you let me do something I want for once?"

MIMI
The heart may freeze

or it can burn
The pain will ease

if I can learn
There is no future
There is no past
I live this moment as

my last

"I know, but I'm already mad that we're changing you at all. A few months won't hurt you."

MIMI
There's only us
There's only this
Forget regret
Or life is yours to miss
No other road
No other way
No day but today

Bella silently seethed. "I should get out here." Edward stopped the car.

"Don't you want me to come in until Charlie comes?"

"No," Bella said, and swiftly walked towards the door.


ROGER
Excuse me if I'm off track
But if you're so wise
Then tell me -- why do you need smack?
Take your needle
Take your fancy prayer
And don't forget
Get the moonlight out of your hair
Long ago -- you might've lit up my heart
But the fire's dead -- ain't never ever gonna start

"Is this about the changing thing?"

Bella turned back around. "Yes."

"Why can't you just try to understand it my way?"

ROGER
Another time -- another place
The words would only rhyme
We'd be in outer space
It'd be another song
We'd sing another way
You wanna prove me wrong?
Come back another day
Another day

"I've been thinking about it your way, and the only explanation I can come up with is that you're a selfish coward!!!"


MIMI
There's only us
Only tonight
We must let go
To know what's right
No other course
No other way
No day but today

MIMI & OTHERS
I can't control

ROGER

Control your temper

MIMI & OTHERS
My destiny

ROGER

She doesn't see

Edward was stunned. "I only want what's best for you, Bella," he whispered.

MIMI & OTHERS
I trust my soul

ROGER

Who says that there's a soul?

MIMI & OTHERS
My only goal is just
To be

ROGER

Just let me be!

"Who says that you know what's best for me more than I do?" With that, Bella walked inside.

MIMI &OTHERS
There's only now
There's only here

ROGER

Who do you think you are?

MIMI & OTHERS
Give in to love
Or live in fear

ROGER

Barging in on me and my guitar

MIMI & OTHERS
No other path

ROGER

Little girl, hey

MIMI & OTHERS
No other way

ROGER

The door is that way

MIMI & OTHERS
No day but today...

ROGER

The fire's out anyway

MIMI & OTHERS

No day but today

ROGER

Take your powder, take your candle

MIMI &OTHERS

No day but today

ROGER

Take your brown eyes, your pretty smile, your silhouette

MIMI & OTHERS

No day but today

ROGER

Another time, another place

Another rhyme, a warm embrace

MIMI &OTHERS

No day but today

Edward heard the squeak of the bed as she jumped on it, and the sobs as she cried loudly.

ROGER

Another dance, another way,

Another chance, another day

MIMI & OTHERS

No day but today

So, did you like it? It probably sucks. You can't really tell when you write it. Or at least I can't. So review and tell me if it sucks or if it's good. But seriously, if you don't like it, you should still see the movie. It's great. It's sad, and great, and if you like Twilight, you're going to love Rent. Go get it. And review.
