lyrics

These are the Days


17th Street corner, we’re running from the law
Long haired and under aged, they got us by the balls
Another bottle brought in, by friends
And again, we thought these days would never end
It was all for one and one for all

These are the times and days that made me
I’m proud to be who I am
These are the people and friends that made me
Proud to know them through the years

The candle melts away, the promises of yesterday
Drunken nights and barroom fights
This was the world they gave me
Down far by the bay, the girls gave it away
City streets, the summer heat
But the band continued to play on

Walking up Broadway to Wolfson’s record store
Van Halen II was just released, Thin Lizzy with Gary Moore
The trestles burning again, gasoline
And things, best to keep them out of view
It was all for one and one for all

These are the times and days that made me
I’m proud to be who I am
These are the people and friends that made me
Proud to know them through the years

Cut off both the sleeves of the recent concert tees
Beer and cigarettes, there was nothing I regret
This were the days that made me
Saxons in the rounds of the metal underground
Only in the dark, would we journey to the park
My little piece of this world

You could see the writing on the wall
And some bad habits had to fall..yeah…

Solo

These are the times and days that made me
I’m proud to be who I am
These are the people and friends that made me – (to be added)
Proud to know them through the years

Stealing Lennys rolls on our way back home
Scoring 6 for 5, crankin’ out KISS Alive
This was the world we lived in
The calendar flipped its days and we went our separate ways
A girl with green eyes took me by surprise
These are the days that made me

Drunken nights, street fights
These are the days
These are the days
These are the days that made me

Vomit in our bed, waking up the dead...ohhhhhhh!
