“Just Another Day” by Jon Secada

John Secada’s “Just Another Day” is a love song along the lines of the vocalist feeling as if the addressee is treating him unfairly. Or perhaps we can say more holistically that the addressee is not reciprocating his level of love for her. 

Thus, what the titular phrase points to, more simply explained than as presented in the chorus, is the singer painfully counting the days go by without his sweetheart. 

The way Jon perceives the situation is apparently under the impression that she could spend more time with him if she really wanted but is not making that much of an effort to do so. Or in any event, he clearly isn’t convinced that she’s feening to be with him as is vice versa. So for now Secada is forced to tough the situation out, i.e. being devoid of his significant other on a regular basis.
