Jackson Browne – These Days

Happy Birthday, Jackson Browne. 73 and still going strong.

Here’s a fun fact: He was 16 when he wrote one of his greatest songs.


A teenager writing from the perspective of an old man. That is…

Well I’ve been out walking  

I don’t do that much talking these days  

These days  

These days I seem to think a lot  

About the things that I forgot to do  

For you  

And all the times I had the chance to  

And I had a lover  

But it’s so hard to risk another these days  

These days  

Now if I seem to be afraid  

To live the life that I have made in song  

Well it’s just that I’ve been losing  

For so long  

Well I’ll keep on moving  

Moving on  

Things are bound to be improving  

These days  

One of these days  

These days I’ll sit on cornerstones  

And count the time in quarter tones to ten  

My friend  

Don’t confront me with my failures  

I had not forgotten them
