Times Like These

  • It's nights like this under a harvest moon
    It came too fast and it's gone too soon
    A wilted rose and a frozen tomb
    A memory for the wind, anyway

    Has anybody noticed that the sky is falling?
    Are we all just happy in the rain?
    Am I the only one who hears the sirens calling?
    Am I the only one who feels the pain?

    It's times like these
    When the sorrow shadows all the laughter
    Times like these
    When the hurt goes on and on forever
    Times like these, I wanna fade away

    I read all the pages from left to right
    I took one in the morning and one at night
    A fire still burns, but it's cold inside
    It's all that I can do, anyway

    No one wants to talk about the end is coming
    Pointing fingers, handing out the blame
    If I gave you answers to all your questions
    Could you change or would you stay the same?

    'Cause it's times like these
    When left is right and forwards, backwards
    Times like these
    When days and nights just roll together
    Times like these, I wanna fade away

    Fade away
    Fade away

    Times like these (these)
    I wanna fade away (fade away)
    In times like these (like these)
    Times like these

    'Cause it's times like these
    When the sorrow shadows all the laughter
    It's times like these
    When it seems like nothing worse can happen
    Times like these
    It's times like these I wanna fade away

    It's times like these (like these)
    I wanna fade away (fade away)
    It's time like these (like these)
    In times like these Writer/s: Ivan Greening, Kevin Churko, Zoltan Bathory
