Bon Jovi - These Days



These Days is the sixth studio album by American rock band Bon Jovi, released on June 27, 1995, by Mercury Records. This was the first album Bon Jovi released after the dismissal of original bass guitarist Alec John Such. It is also the first album to feature the bass guitar work of Hugh McDonald, who replaced Such as a session/touring member. The album, produced by Peter Collins, Jon Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora, is praised by many critics and fans as their best album. These Days is overall a darker album in contrast to the band's usual brand of feel-good, inspiring rock songs and love ballads.


Lyrics


I was walking around Just a face in the crowd Tryna 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 bear 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 tryna be James Dean She's seen all the disciples and all the wanna-bes No one wants to be themselves these days Still there's nothing to hold on to but these days These days the stars hang out of reach These days there ain't a ladder on the streets Oh, no, no 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 Tryna learn to fly From a second story window He just jumped and closed his eyes His momma said he was crazy He said, "Momma, I've gotta try Don't you know that all my heroes died? And I guess I'd rather die than fade away." These days the stars hang out of reach But these days there ain't a ladder on the streets Oh, no, no These days are fast Nothing lasts It's a graceless age Even innocence has caught the midnight train And 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 hang out of reach But these days there ain't a ladder on the streets Oh, no, no These days are fast Love don't last It's a graceless age Even innocence has caught the midnight train These days the stars hang out of reach These days there ain't a ladder on the streets Oh, no, no These days are fast Nothing lasts There ain't no time to waste There ain't nobody left to take the blame Oh, no, no There ain't nobody left but us these days Ain't nobody left but us these days
