UNA CANCIÓN POR DÍA

These Days






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 wannabes
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
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 storey 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 fade away

These days the stars seem out of reach
But these days there ain't a ladder on the streets
These days are fast nothing lasts in this graceless age
Even innocence has caught the midnight train
There ain't nobody left but us these days

I know Rome's still burning
Though the times have changed
This world keeps turning round and round and round and round
These days

These days the stars seem out of reach
But these days there ain't a ladder on the streets
These days are fast love don't last it's a graceless age
Even innocence has caught the morning train

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