BON JOVI


These Days Lyrics

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
I 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 the streets
Oh no, no, no
These days are fast, nothing lasts 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 fa-fa-fade away, yeah"

These days the stars seem out of reach, yeah
But these days there ain't a ladder on the streets
Oh no, no, no
These days are fast, love don't lasts 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 kept turning round and round and round and round
These days

These days the stars seem out of reach, yeah
But these days there ain't a ladder on these streets
Oh no, no, no
These days are fast, love don't 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 seem out of reach, yeah
These days there ain't a ladder on these streets
Oh no, no, no
These days are fast, nothing lasts
There ain't no time to waste
There ain't nobody left to take the blame
Oh no, no, no
Oh no, no, no, these days
There ain't nobody left but us these days

This entire album was awesome. Too bad the advent of grunge killed it shot of full exposure. Bon Jovi's best body of work.
