These Days

Story Behind The Song

"These Days" was written and recorded by Dick alone very late one night at Long View Farm Studios, a residential studio in the farmlands of Massachusetts. Dick sat at the piano, and the owner/engineer, Gil Markle, captured him. The historic Long View Farm has hosted music greats of the past 40 years; read more on www.studiowner.com.

Lyrics

These Days
Dick Wagner

I've been out all night,
Up and down the lonely back streets,
In and out of every barroom door
And every hangout that we used to know.

And it feels so strange
Seein' the old familiar faces.
Doin' my best to keep myself in touch,
And I've been missing you
Much too much.

And I wonder what you're doing for love these days.
It's been a long time since anybody here
Has seen your face
Yes, I wonder, will I ever find someone to take your place?
I can't stop thinking about you.
It's hard living without you,
These days.

It's the same old town.
Nothing ever seems to change too much
Even the movie at the all night show
I've seen it play a dozen times before

And it still feels strange,
Stumblin' blindly through the darkness.
It's always empty in the back row seats
Until I close my eyes, and you're with me.

And I wonder, when you go out at night,
Do you ever get fooled in a neon light?
Think you see my face,
The way I sometimes think I see you.

But when you disappear from sight,
Just another shadow in the night.
I've played that same old game,
Every night down here on Main street
Hoping to see you baby one more time
Goin' home strung out on the 4:09.

And I wonder what you're doing for love these days.
It's been a long time since anybody here
Has seen your face.
Yes, I wonder, will I ever find someone to take your place?
I can't stop thinking about you.
It's hard living without you,
These days.
