These Days – things to ponder on a Friday afternoon

I mean, actually, just what a song. WHAT A SONG. Such a tremendous collaboration and achievement. Not exactly a party starter for a Friday night (for which we apologise), but we are totally planning on a sad movie night, in a blanket, with our dog, so it’s the right vibe for us (and we’re selfish like that).

Too beautiful. Too sad. And the lyrics are just so true to what those of us with exes (that weren’t total douchebags) wish for. These people we date had something that we liked or even loved (or at least we hope they did) and all the emotion gets mixed up in the end, and so often we end up with only hate and bitterness, yet these were people we once cared for. Anyway, we’re having a philosophical Friday and are selfishly inflicting it upon you. So listen to the song, read the lyrics, feel a bit sad and then go out and PARTAY (or stay under your blanket with your dog – like us).

Lyrics

I know you moved onto someone new
Hope life is beautiful
You were the light for me to find my truth
I just wanna say, thank you
Leaving to find my soul
Told her I had to go
And I know it ain’t pretty
When our hearts get broke
Too young to feel this old
Watching us both turn cold
Oh, I know it ain’t pretty
When two hearts get broke
Yeah, I know it ain’t pretty
When two hearts get broke
I hope someday
We’ll sit down together
And laugh with each other
About these days, these days
All our troubles
We’ll lay to rest
And we’ll wish we could come back to these days, these days
These days, these days
These days, these days
Three years of ups and downs
Nothing to show for it now
And I know it ain’t pretty when the fire burns out
Calling me when I’m drunk, remind me of what I’ve done
And I know it ain’t pretty when you’re trying to move on, yeah
I hope someday
We’ll sit down together
And laugh with each other
About these days, these days
All our troubles
We’ll lay to rest
And we’ll wish we could come back to these days, these days
Oh I know, I know
Oh I know, I know
Oh I know, I know
These days, these days
Oh I know, I know
Oh I know, I know
Oh I know, I know
To these days, these days
Cigarettes in the ash tray
Reminiscing on those past days
I thought you’d end up with my last name
But that changed
And I travelled around the world
Think where you living at now?
I heard you moved to Oxford
Got an apartment and settled down
And every once in a while
I start texting
Write a paragraph
But then I delete the message
Think ’bout you like a past time
I could cry you a river
Get you baptised or
I wasn’t ready to act right
Used to always think I’d get you back, right
They say that things fall apart (yeah)
We were gonna move to Brooklyn
You were gonna study Art (oh no, oh)
Love is just a tool
To remind us who we are
And that we are not alone
When we’re walking in the dark
I hope someday
We’ll sit down together
And laugh with each other
About these days, these days
All our troubles
We’ll lay to rest
And we’ll wish we could come back to these days, these days
We’ll wish we could come back to these days, these days (these days, these days, these days)
