These Days
-
I WAS WALKING AROUND, JUST A FACE IN THE CROWD
TRYING TO KEEP MYSELF OUT OF THE RAIN
SAW A VAGABOND KING WEAR A STYROFOAM CROWN
WONDERED IF I MIGHT END UP THE SAME
THERE'S A MAN OUT ON THE CORNER SINGING OLD SONGS ABOUT CHANGE
EVERYBODY'S GOT THEIR CROSS TO BARE THESE DAYS
SHE CAME LOOKING FOR SOME SHELTER WITH A SUITCASE FULL OF DREAMS
TO A MOTEL ROOM ON THE BOULEVARD
GUESS SHE'S TRYING TO BE JAMES DEAN
SHE'S SEEN ALL THE DISCIPLES AND ALL THE WANNABES
NO ONE WANTS TO BE THEMSELVES THESE DAYS
STILL THERE'S NOTHING TO HOLD ONTO BUT THESE DAYS
CHORUS: THESE DAYS THE STARS SEEM OUT OF REACH
THESE DAYS THERE AIN'T A LADDER ON THE STREETS
THESE DAYS ARE FAST
LOVE DON'T LAST IN THIS GRACELESS AGE
THERE AIN'T NOBODY LEFT BUT US THESE DAYS
JIMMY SHOES BUSTED BOTH HIS LEGS, TRYING TO LEARN TO FLY
FROM A SECOND STORY WINDOW
HE JUST JUMPED AND CLOSED HIS EYES
HIS MOMMA SAID HE WAS CRAZY
HE SAID, "MOMMA, I'VE GOT TO TRY"
DON'T YOU KNOW THAT ALL MY HEROES DIED
AND I GUESS I'D RATHER DIE THAN FADE AWAY
CHORUS: THESE DAYS THE STARS SEEM OUT OF REACH
THESE DAYS THERE AIN'T A LADDER ON THE STREETS
THESE DAYS ARE FAST
LOVE DON'T LAST IN THIS GRACELESS AGE
EVEN INNOCENCE HAS CAUGHT THE MIDNIGHT TRAIN
AND THERE AIN'T NOBODY LEFT BUT US THESE DAYS
I KNOW ROME'S STILL BURNING THOUGH THE TIMES HAVE CHANGED
THIS WORLD KEEPS TURNING ROUND AND ROUND AND ROUND AND ROUND THESE DAYS
SOLO
CHORUS: THESE DAYS THE STARS SEEM OUT OF REACH
THESE DAYS THERE AIN'T A LADDER ON THE STREETS
THESE DAYS ARE FAST
NOTHING LASTS IN THIS GRACELESS AGE
EVEN INNOCENCE HAS CAUGHT THE MIDNIGHT TRAIN
AND THERE AIN'T NOBODY LEFT BUT US THESE DAYS

THESE DAYS THE STARS ARE OUT OF REACH
THESE DAYS THERE AIN'T NO LADDER ON THE STREETS
THESE DAYS ARE FAST
NOTHING LASTS, THERE AIN'T NO TIME TO WASTE
THERE AIN'T NOBODY LEFT TO TAKE THE BLAME
THERE AIN'T NOBODY LEFT BUT US THESE DAYS...
