“Everyday” is a single from glam rock band Slade which appeared on the album Old New Borrowed and Blue. It was written by the usual collaboration of lead singer Noddy Holder and bassist Jim Lea. The single was released in 1974 and peaked at #3 in the UK, spending 7 weeks on the chart, the shortest time of any charting Slade single at that time. The single’s first week upon release peaked at #6 and stayed in the top 10 for 4 weeks. Everyday marked a change from Slade’s usual style. The public did not expect a ballad to be released and – with the exception of Far Far Away – Slade would not reach higher than #3 in the UK again until 1983’s My Oh My.

Everyday when I’m away
I’m thinking of you
Everyone can carry on
Except for we two.
And you know that our love
And you know that I
And you know that our love won’t die.
And it won’t even show
And no-one will know
One little wave
To say you’ll behave
It won’t even show
How far love can go.
Everyday when I’m away
And there’s been a few
Every land I need a hand
To help me come through.
And you know that our love
And you know that I
And you know that our love won’t die.
And it won’t even show
And no-one will know
One little wave
To say you’ll behave
It won’t even show
How far love can go.
And you know that our love
And you know that I
And you know that our love won’t die.
And it won’t even show
And no-one will know
One little wave
To say you’ll behave
It won’t even show
How far love can go.
