"These Days" Lyrics

Bon Jovi

I was walking around, just a face in the crowd
Trying to keep myself out of 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's 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
I guess she's trying to be James Dean
She's seen all the disciples and all the wannabes
No one wants to be themselves these days
Still there's nothing to hold on to but these days

These days - the stars hang out of reach
These days - there ain't a ladder on these streets, oh no no
These days - are fast, nothing last in this graceless age
There ain't anybody left but us these days

Jimmy shoes busted both his legs, try to learn to fly
From a second story window, he just jumped and closed his eyes
His mamma said he was crazy - he said mamma "I've got a 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 the streets
These days - are fast, nothing last it's our graceless age
Even innocence has caught the midnight train
There ain't anybody left but but us these days

I know Rome's still burning
Though the times have changed
This world keeps turning round and round and round and round
These days

These days - the stars hang out of reach
But these days - there ain't a ladder on the streets oh no no
These days - are fast, love don't last it's our graceless age
Even innocence has caught the midnight train
And there ain't anybody left but but us these days

These days - the stars hang out of reach
These days - there ain't a ladder on the streets
These days - are fast, nothing last
There ain't no time to waste
There ain't anybody left to take the blame
And there ain't anybody left but but us these days
There ain't anybody left but but us these days
