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 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 wanna be’s

No one wants to be themselves these days

Still there’s nothing to hold on to but these days



These days – the stars seem out of reach

These days – there ain’t a ladder on these 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



These days – the stars seem out of reach

But these days – there ain’t a ladder on these streets

These days are fast, love don’t lasts-in this graceless age

Even innocence has caught the morning train

And there ain’t nobody left but us these days



I know rome’s still burning

Though the times have changed

This world keep turning round and round and round and round

These days



These days – the stars seem out of reach

But these days – there ain’t a ladder on these streets

These days are fast, love don’t lasts-in this graceless age

Even innocence has caught the morning train

And there ain’t nobody left but us these days



These days – the stars seem out of reach

These days – there ain’t a ladder on these 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



From the Album These Days by Bon Jovi
