These Days

 

Chorus

These days

I’m fixing my gaze on the river.

I’m changing my ways I’m going with her.

 

Wheeling and dealing all of my life

See black but I swear I see white

And the green fields on the other side

They’re so far away, so far away, so far away

And I like it that way.

 

Chorus

 

Pushing and pulling in the back of my mind

I look for something I’m hoping to find

Some meaning so I reach for the sky

It’s so far away, so far away, so far away

And the more I know the more I know I don’t know

The more I know the more I know I don’t know

I don’t know, I don’t know

 

Chorus

 

 I dream that I see you larger than life

You carry a candle, you’re twisting the knife

But you’re fading in the morning light

You’re so far away, so far away, so far away

And I like it that way.

 

Chorus

 

These days. These days.
