Wonderful Lyrics

Music is such a grounding and transforming force!

To me, the lyrics have always been the most important part of “pop” music (from Sinatra to  the Beatles to Amazing Grace to Lou Reed…. and to whoever I’ve not even heard yet).  “Days,” written by Ray Davies (the Kinks) has been part of today’s inner soundtrack to me.  

I know the song from the Kirsty MacColl version. No surprise that it was Dennis who turned me on to Kirsty’s music.  What an amazing talent she was!  Here’s a link to the You Tube of her performing “Days”:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lOKWqtocXWs&feature=related.

Days

Thank you for the days
Those endless days, those sacred days you gave me
I’m thinking of the days
I won’t forget a single day believe me

I bless the light
I bless the light that lights on you believe me
And though you’re gone
You’re with me every single day believe me

Days I’ll remember all my life
Days when you can’t see wrong from right
You took my life
But then I knew that very soon you’d leave me
But it’s alright
Now I’m not frightened of this world believe me

I wish today could be tomorrow
The night is long
It just brings sorrow let it wait

Thank you for the days
Those endless days, those sacred days you gave me
I’m thinking of the days
I won’t forget a single day believe me

Days I’ll remember all my life
Days when you can’t see wrong from right
You took my life
But then I knew that very soon you’d leave me
But it’s alright
Now I’m not frightened of this world believe me

Days

Thank you for the days
Those endless days, those sacred days you gave me
I’m thinking of the days
I won’t forget a single day believe me

I bless the light
I bless the light that lights on you believe me
And though you’re gone
You’re with me every single day believe me

Days
