The Days

Album: The Dream (2019)
  • It seems like just yesterday
    We were posing in knock-off frames
    Spiking up our lemonade
    Smiling in a cap and gown
    I don't know what to say
    I know I've been M-I-A
    The dreams I just had to chase
    Been runnin' me 'round
    The other day it hit me like a hammer
    That you can't get back those moments that really matter
    Another candle on a cake
    Another month on a page
    You blink, another year under the sun we all go 'round
    It's hello and goodbye
    It's knowing that it's flying away
    And there's no way to slow it down
    Instead of counting up the days
    I just wanna make 'em count
    I need to catch up with my sister
    Our old jacket pins and stickers
    Sometimes the bigger picture is in the little things
    Hiding out on aisle three
    In the CVS from that gossip queen
    Who'd have told the whole town if she'd seen us acting fifteen
    The other day it hit me like a hammer
    That you can't get back those moments that really matter
    Another candle on a cake
    Another month on a page
    You blink, another year under the sun we all go 'round
    It's hello and goodbye
    It's knowing that it's flying away
    And there's no way to slow it down
    Instead of counting up the days
    I just wanna make 'em count
    Make 'em count
    I don't want 'em to add up to nothing
    Make 'em count
    'Cause if it's all I got I want 'em to mean something
    Every candle on a cake
    Every month on a page
    You blink, another year under the sun we all go 'round
    Hello and goodbye
    I know that they're flying away
    And there's no way to slow 'em down
    Instead of counting up the days
    I just wanna make 'em count
    Yeah I just wanna make 'em count
