THESE ARE THE DAYS

From the album God & The Girl

 

RAISE A GLASS TO THE PAST AND TO THE SOLDIERS

TO FADED FRIENDS AND HAPPY ENDS AND TO THE OLD

MAY WE ALL LIVE AS LONG AS WE LIKE

MAY WE ALL BE AS STRONG AS THE WINE

 

REMEMBER THIS: BEFORE WE KISSED WE WERE STRANGERS

TOOK A CHANCE ON A DANCE IN THE QUIET

FIRST THE DARK THEN THE SPARK THEN THE FIRE

FIRST THE SKY THEN THE STARS THEN THE LIGHT

 

THESE ARE THE DAYS

THESE ARE THE DAYS WHEN THEY GROW UP FAST

THESE ARE THE NIGHTS

THESE ARE THE NIGHTS YOU MAKE IT LAST

 

TIME IS A TRAIN, WAITS FOR NO ONE

TIME IS A CHILD RUNNING WILD

TIME IS A BIRD ON THE WING

FLYING HOME TO THE SUN IN THE SPRING

 

REMEMBER THIS: BEFORE WE KISSED WE WERE STRANGERS

TOOK A CHANCE ON A DANCE IN THE QUIET

FIRST THE DARK THEN THE SPARK THEN THE FIRE

FIRST THE SKY THEN THE STARS THEN THE LIGHT

 

THESE ARE THE DAYS

THESE ARE THE DAYS WHEN THEY GROW UP FAST

THESE ARE THE NIGHTS

THESE ARE THE NIGHTS YOU MAKE IT LAST

 

THESE ARE THE DAYS

THESE ARE THE DAYS WHEN THEY GROW UP FAST

THESE ARE THE NIGHTS

THESE ARE THE NIGHTS YOU MAKE IT LAST

 

RAISE A GLASS TO THE PAST AND TO THE SOLDIERS

TO FADED FRIENDS AND HAPPY ENDS AND TO THE OLD

MAY WE ALL LIVE AS LONG AS WE LIKE

MAY WE ALL BE AS STRONG AS THE WINE
