Lyrics: Hard Days

I’m not a soldier man, just a boy with a gun in my hand.

I’m a baby, in a war.

 

They came on a cold, dark, night.

Stole our mothers and forced us to fight and we don’t know what for.

 

One day. We’ll stand in the sun, one day.

When I’m in a bad way, we’ll sing our songs as one.

But it’s hard days.

Hard days.

 

I’m not a preachers son.

I can’t stand the things that I’ve done but a soldier don’t cry.

 

And no one will ever pay for the childhood they’ve stolen from me.

They can’t break me, but they try. Yeah they try.

 

 

One day. We’ll stand in the sun, one day.

When I’m in a bad way, we’ll sing our songs as one.

But it’s hard days.

Hard days.

Lyrics: Lucky Man

Now I don’t have the answers to the questions of the world

We walk this road together – a simple boy, a simple girl

And in our times of wonder, separate travels far away

We learn it’s the little things that help our souls to stay

 

United by a colour, by the rain. By the brilliance of the morning

And I thought I’d say that…

 

Baby I’m a luck man

I’m a lucky man it’s true

Baby I’m a lucky man

I wanna thank you for being you.

 

Now you like helping nature, and I like writing songs

Alone we both have inner strength – as one we’re twice as strong

In love with life’s surprises, in love with shooting stars

We’re passionate and grateful for the moments shared so far

 

Like sleeping on your back porch in the snow. I always feel like sayin’, but you already know that…

 

Baby I’m a luck man

I’m a lucky man it’s true

Baby I’m a lucky man

I wanna thank you for being you.

 

Maybe I’m not doing it right

I guess that’s just my way

How is it you make me who I am?

 

Baby I’m a luck man

I’m a lucky man it’s true

Baby I’m a lucky man

I wanna thank you for being you.

Lyrics: Those Days

I put on my shoes, you grab your coat

And we head for a night on the town

 

There’s a crisp autumn air, and in your chestnut hair

The coloured leaves are weaving a crown

 

Just a boy and a girl, walking the world

Doing things and making them count

 

Not knowing one day, it all goes away

‘Till years they pass and candles blow out

 

Yeah and the days are slowly passing by like train cars

And I don’t wanna be the man who ignores his heart saying…

 

In those days, I had it all but I lost it

Now I’m just a lonely fool

I tried, much too late and it costed.

Can someone take me back?

 

Now we’re walking along, you’re humming a song

About a boy in love with the moon

But he left it too long and soon it was gone

Slipped away like untied balloons.

 

And the little boy didn’t think he should protect it

Well it slipped away, and he let it.

 

In those days, I had it all but I lost it

Now I’m just a lonely fool

I tried, much too late and it costed.

Can someone take me back?

 

I could have been the one to sleep beside you

Yeah but now I greet the morning light alone

Can someone take me back, someone take me back to…

 

Those days, I had it all but I lost it

Now i’m just a lonely fool

I tried, much too late and it costed

can someone take me back….
