Gone Are The Days Lyrics

And we were just a child with a myst that children make
And we were running wild, no thoughts for what we'd break
But gone are all the days, gone are all the days
And once we learn to hide, our size did keep us safe
The sidewalk cracks were wide, but to jump 'em made us brave
But then the darkness came-a creepin' over every place
Over time we took to sleeping, and let the weeds take over this place
Well, how about the backyard, sons and daughters
C'mon, we've got to get some work done
The bones, I'm told, they hold the place up, so why crack 'em away
The rocks we shake, and everything we take and still think will be OK
But gone are all the days, gone are all the days

Well, the limbs outside this house are dignified by the forces uncontained
And how we survive when the whales run dry, now their muscle does remain
For when we rode the thunder steely faced
And we kicked our heels into the belly of the chase
So becomes a garden soft and embracing to a hungry, hollow taste
If we keep building fires and fanning up the flames, even the waters from our eyes will never dampen down that place
But gone are all the days, gone are all the days
Still every morning's light and all the day it stays, until it turns to night and then the future's on its way
And the future's never gonna lay down, it won't lay down its face
Hold that shoulder strong and carry it along, and steady it with grace
