BRENDAN JAMES lyrics - Hope In Transition

Younger Days

Original and similar lyrics
Running like hell through the trees Nobody pressuring me Younger days Getting out after school Playing a bunch of fools Younger days I see the sunset, I see the stars I see the future, oh my god, like a train approaches It's coming for me Slipping my Jordans on Playing some one on one Younger days Telling my sister I hate her Knowing that I'd never trade her Younger days I see the sunset, I see the stars I see the future, oh my god, like a train approaches It's coming for me Oh these younger days I'll take to my grave For carving me out of a stone Oh these younger days I'll never replace Oh if only I'd known Hearing my fathers joys Cracking my mothers voice Younger days Filling my pockets with papers Smoking em deep in the woods Younger days I see the sunset, I see the stars I see the future, oh my god, like a train approaches It's coming for me Oh these younger days I'll take to my grave For carving me out of a stone Oh these younger days I'll never replace Oh if only I'd known I see the sunset, I see the stars I see the future Ohhh my god

Back In My Younger Days

DON WILLIAMS "True Love"
Back in my younger days, I used to go all night Now I just stay at home, and everything is all right Back when I first met you, I used to live in a haze That was so long ago, back in my younger days I would do anything, just a stumbling fool It's a wonder I'm standing here, I've broken so many rules Now I dance with you every night, and still I'm so amazed Your love made a man of me, back in my younger days Oh, it doesn't seem that long ago You, you make it feel like the first time we made love And I ain't ever getting enough Well, well, well.... As I go through the photographs, I laugh and turn the page Its the ballad of me and you, from such an innocent age Talk about a dream come true, we reinvented a phrase Its better than it used to be, back in my younger days Back in my younger days, Back in my younger days Its better than it used to be, back in my younger days

Too Far Gone

MICK JAGGER "Goddess In The Doorway"
Let it down let it down Let it down now Let it down let it down Let it down now Let it down let it down Let it down now I always hate nostalgia Living in the past No use getting misty eyed It all screamed by so fast When life was so much calmer Severely buttoned up The future rich in promises Milk flowing from the cup I would spend those lazy days Lying on a ridge Watching girls in cotton dresses Diving off the bridge Is it too far gone Is it too far gone Is it too too far gone Too far gone This was once the country Now it's all the town What was once the tallest spire Is just building crumbled down And I'm lving in a factory That's a million dollar flat I'm not looking for arcadia Cause it's never coming back I would spend my childhood days Lost in starry dreams And now watch my children Just downloading them to screens Let it down let it down let it down Let it down let it down let it down Cause it's too far gone Too far gone [cont] Yeah it's too far gone Yeah it's too too Too far too far gone Let it down let it down let it down I'm lying in a garden Carpets in the shade Thinking of the future And all the love we saved The world outside is ugly It's bitter and it's harsh We each of us protect ourselves We're hostage to the past And it's too far gone It's too far gone I wonder where did we go wrong And it's too too far And it's too too far Too far gone

These Days

BON JOVI "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 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 Guess she's trying to be James Dean She's seen all the disciples and all the 'wanna be's' 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 these streets These days - are fast, love don't last 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 story 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 these streets These days are fast, love don't lasts-in this graceless age Even innocence has caught the morning train And there ain't nobody left but us these days I know Rome's still burning Though the times have changed This world keepd 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 these streets These days are fast, love don't lasts-in this graceless age Even innocence has caught the morning train And there ain't nobody left but us these days These days - the stars seem out of reach These days - there ain't a ladder on these 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

Railroad Days

Bob Seger System "Brand New Morning"
Jan would climb up so high on the foul screen Down below I would yell to watch out When we'd play ? was always the winner He was brave never listened to me shout Afternoons playin' ball by the old wall Hidin' out and of course be the star Kept my records in old looseleaf notebooks And today I think I still know where they are Oh, Railroad days Railroad days Railroad days When I was young, in my prime On my way When the rain never got in my way oh in my younger railroad days Some nights, Drifters playin' on the hi-fi Talkin' 'bout girls, or preposterous lies Laughin hard, watchin' Soupy at eleven Skonkin' down, one of Mom's lemon pies Ten o'clock, bringin' groceries from the market Singin songs, to the darkness of the night Even sang the parts the instruments were playing Life was freer, dreams were really quite all right Oh, Railroad days Railroad days Railroad days When the sun seemed to smile on it's way When the darkness was easier to play yeah oh in my younger railroad days Yesterday, I heard they shut the trains down The ones than ran, by the field where I would play Said the folks want new and faster transportation It's just like me, I'll be obsolete one day Oh, Railroad days Railroad days Railroad days When I was young, in my prime On my way When the rain never got in my way oh in my younger railroad days

All Those Days Are Gone

Jump, Little Children
All those days are gone So she falls asleep every night just before dawn And closes her eyes As the sun starts to rise 'Cause all those days are gone Sometimes she pretends The sun it has finally begun to come to an end Luminous nights Of lonely streetlights Sometimes she likes to pretend She said that everybody wants to be here Here where there's no one else around Pull down all the shades And try to forget how all of the memories fade Memories that bled A curtain bright red Time to pull down the shades She said that everybody wants to be here Here where there's no one else around All those days are gone As far as the stars are away from the midday sun Memories so bright In a spinning twilight But all those days are gone She said everybody wants to be here Here where there's no one else around I'll trade the moon for the sun But this feeling for no one She said that everybody wants to be here All those days are gone As far as the stars are away from the midday sun
