Lyrically Speaking for August 22


Happy Friday everyone! This week I bring to you another song that I’ve been really into these past few weeks. Sometimes a song comes around that you just really enjoy listening to, not just for the lyrics but also because the melody is really great. I don’t even mean great in that ‘typical radio formula’ sense where it gets stuck in your head. I’m referring to just a great song. For this week, I wanted to post a song that is inspiring in its poetry but also a song that is a fun driving song and I think can be classified as a ‘summer song’, whatever that means.

Personally, I find this song from 10,000 Maniacs interesting, thoughtful, poetic and observant of the world we live in. It reminds you to stay young at heart and enjoy life. I think all of us at times need this advice!

From the album Our Time in Eden, here is These Are Days:

These are the days
These are days you’ll remember
Never before and never since, I promise
Will the whole world be warm as this
And as you feel it,
You’ll know it’s true
That you are blessed and lucky
It’s true that you
Are touched by something
That will grow and bloom in you

These are days that you’ll remember
When May is rushing over you
With desire to be part of the miracles
You see in every hour
You’ll know it’s true
That you are blessed and lucky
It’s true that you are touched
By something that will grow and bloom in you

These are days
These are the days you might fill
With laughter until you break
These days you might feel
A shaft of light
Make its way across your face
And when you do
Then you’ll know how it was meant to be
See the signs and know their meaning
It’s true
Then you’ll know how it was meant to be
Hear the signs and know they’re speaking
To you, to you
