These days    (video)

 

F                                         C                     - G                         Am

    I know you moved onto someone new,        hope, life is beautiful.

F                                             C                             G                         C

    You were the life of me to find my truth, I just wanna say ‘thank you’.

 

                       F           C                    G       Am

1. Leaving to find my soul, told her I had to go,

                  F                C                       G               C

    and I know it ain't pretty when two hearts get broke.

                            F           C                        G           Am

    Too young to feel this old, watching us both turn cold,

                F                 C                       G              C

    oh, I know it ain't pretty when two hearts get broke.

                     F                C                        G             C

    Yeah, I know it ain't pretty when two hearts get broke.

 

F                        C          - G                    Am

    I hope someday we'll        sit down together,

F                                    C                   G                         C

    and laugh with each other about these days, these days.

F                C         - G                   Am

    All our troubles        we'll lay to rest, and

F                                   C                     G                         C

    we'll wish we could come back to these days, these days.

 

                                                   G                          C

+  F - C - G - Am    - F - C    - These days, these days. (2x)

 

                             F              C                            G           Am

2. Three years of ups and downs, nothing to show for it now,

                 F                 C                     G             C

    and I know it ain't pretty when the fire burns out.

                           F            C                                    G         Am

    Calling me when I'm drunk, reminding me of what I've done,

                 F                 C                          G                    C

    and I know it ain't pretty when you're trying to move on.

 

+  CHORUS

 

                                                   G                          C

+  F - C - G - Am    - F - C    - These days, these days. (2x)

 

    F                              C          - G                                    Am

3.    Cigarettes in the ash tray,       reminiscing on those past days,

F                                                  C                    - G            C

    I thought you didn't know my last name, but        that changed.

                F                                                                 C

    And I travelled around the world, think where you living at now,

                           G                                        Am

    I heard you moved to Oxford, got a new apartment and settled down.

F                                       C

    And every once in a while I start texting,

       G                                 C

    write a paragraph, but then I delete the message.

 

F                                      Am

    Think 'bout you like a past time,

                 G                                  Am

    I could cry you a river, get you baptised,

         - F                             Am

    or        I wasn't ready to act right,

                  - G                                        Am

    used to         always think I'd get you back, right.

F                          Am

    They say that things fall apart,

                                 G                                                   Am

    we were gonna move to Brooklyn, you were gonna study Art.

F                                      Am

    Love is just a tool to remind who we are,

             G                                                  Am

    and that we are not alone, and we're walking in the dark.

 

+  CHORUS

 

    F                                           C                    G                          C

+      And we'll wish we could come back to these days, these days.
