Better Days

  • Took a walk down paramount
    (I've seen better days)
    Left behind a friend of mine
    (I've seen better days)
    Passed by a statue of saint Augustine in prayer
    Said for one, the only one
    I turned my back at her

    The elevator rose to the eleventh floor
    (I've seen better days)
    Her trench coat hangs inside her door
    (I've seen better days)
    A leaky window welcomed rain and left me standing here
    A black-haired girl who taught me truth
    I turned my back on her

    Too late for hope but a dream remembered
    Lay me down, down, down
    Too late for hope but a dream remembered
    Better days

    Made love in the toronto rain
    (i've seen better days)
    From hamilton i look the train
    (I've seen better days)
    What you regret, you softly said are things you never do
    I regret i didn't turn
    And run back home to you

    Too late for hope but a dream remembered
    Lay me down, down, down
    Too late for hope but a dream remembered
    Better days, better days

    Now i stand in sympathy
    Not for her but for me
    I could have turned i could have stayed
    But i just walked away
    I could have done a lot of things
    In my better days

    Too late for hope but a dream remembered
    Lay me down, down, down
    Too late for hope but a dream remembered
    Better days, better days Writer/s: GARY LOURIS, GARY MICHAEL LOURIS
