Days That Used to Be

Album: Ragged Glory (1990)
  • People say don't rock the boat, let things go their own way
    Ideas that once seem so right, now have gotten hard to say
    I wish I could talk to you, you could talk to me
    'Cause there's very few of us left my friend
    From the days that used to be

    Seem like such a simple thing to follow one's own dream
    But possessions and concession are not often what they seem
    They drag you down and load you down in disguise of security
    But we never had to make those deals
    In the days that used to be

    Talk to me, my long lost friend, tell me how you are
    Are you happy with your circumstance, are you driving a new car
    Does it get you where you wanna go, with a seven-year warranty
    Or just another hundred thousand miles away
    From days that used to be Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
