"These Days" Lyrics

4.9 / 5
Song updated, review now!
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.
