Those were the days!!


I'm glad those days are over
I was nothin' but a deadbeat rover
Consuming anything that got me high
Wouldn't matter if you asked me why
Now those days are in the distant past
Even though sometimes I had a blast
If I wanna act like that today
I just remember when I used to say

Last Night
Can't remember what I did
Last Night
Don't remind me God forbid
It's a shame wastin' that time away
But I keep doin' the same thing day after day
Last Night
Last Night

I could be just like that today
Wouldn't take much to make Jack play
I'd be off and runnin' to the races
End up in dark and danky places
There's a part of me that wants to go there
Sometimes I think I smell it in the air
That power that tries to lure me in
But I don't wanna go there ever again

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

love the intro, a bit latiny. Gee you fired the lyrics out! such a strong guitar! This is a cracker Jeff

Biggrin I just read vivalrayana's lyric and left basically a paraphrase of these lyrics as a comment, so I won't repeat myself hahaha. This is an excellent tune though, some great strong guitar/vocal. Really enjoyed this!

Oh, wow. Just read your and @dzd's comments on my song, then came to listen to this and I love it! Seems like you've both learned your lessons while my gal is not quite there yet. Love the guitar in this and agree it has a delightful Latin feel. I also love how the lyrics are a cautionary tale that while the urge to indulge never goes away, there's very good reason to resist. Great job with this!

This is awesome. V1 is good, but I really loved V2. It has a bit of humor but some darkness too. The chorus is perfection. Really nice. The driving guitar works well.

Really personable vocals drew me in. I stayed for the lyrics. Really awesome song. Well done!
