    "These Days" Lyrics

    Rascal Flatts

    Hey baby, is that you
    Wow, your hair got so long
    Yeah, yeah I love it, I really do
    'Norma Jean', ain't that the song we'd sing
    In the car, driving downtown
    Top down, making the rounds
    Checking out the bands on Doheny Avenue

    Yeah, life throws you curves
    But you learned to swerve
    Me, I swung and I missed
    And the next thing you know, I'm reminiscing

    Dreamin' old dreams, wishing old wishes
    Like you would be back again

    I wake up and teardrops, they fall down like rain
    I put on that old song we danced to and then
    I head off to my job, guess not much has changed
    Punch the clock,
    Head for home
    Check the phone, just in case
    Go to bed, dream of you
    That's what I'm doing these days
    Yeah, that's what I'm doin'.

    Someone told me, after college
    You ran off to Vegas
    You married a rodeo cowboy, why?
    That ain't the girl I knew
    Me, I've been a few places

    Mostly here and there, once or twice
    Still sorting out life but I'm doing alright
    Yeah, it's good to see you too

    Well hey girl, you're late
    And those planes, they don't wait
    But if you ever come back around
    This sleepy old town
    Promise me you'll stop in
    To see an old friend
    And until then...

    I wake up and teardrops
    They fall down like rain
    I put on that old song we danced to and then
    I head off to my job
    Guess not much has changed
    Punch the clock

    Head for home
    Check the phone just in case
    Go to bed dream of you that's what I'm doing these days

    I wake up and teardrops
    They fall down like rain
    I put on that old song we danced to
    And I head off to my job
    Guess not much has changed
    Punch the clock
    Head for home
    Check the phone just in case
    Go to bed dream of you that's what I'm doing these

    I wake up and teardrops
    They fall down like rain
    I put on that old song we danced to and then
    I head off to my job
    Guess not much has changed
    Punch the clock
    Head for home
    Check the phone just in case
    Go to bed dream of you that's what I'm doing these

    About

    "These Days" is a song written by Jeffrey Steele, Steve Robson, and Danny Wells, and recorded by American country music group Rascal Flatts on their 2002 album Melt. Released in June 2002 as that album's first single, the song became the group's first Number One hit on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks (now Hot Country Songs) charts in November of that year.

    This song is about a man who unexpectedly crosses paths with a former lover and they tell each other what has happened since they saw each other last. He tells her that since she has gone from his life, most of his time is spent thinking and dreaming about her.

    Gary LeVox said of the song, "We knew this was a special song. We'd already completed the album but we dropped a song that we wrote to put this on our album."

    After the completion of recording for Melt, the band learned there was money in the recording budget for several more songs. They then recorded "Love You Out Loud" and "These Days" and being so impressed by the latter they replaced a song they wrote from the album with it.

    "These Days" debuted at number 48 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks for the week of June 29, 2002.
