"Days" as written by and Raymond Douglas Davies....
Thank you for the days
Those endless days, those sacred days you gave me
I'm thinking of the days
I won't forget a single day, believe me

I bless the light
I bless the light that lights on you believe me
And though you're gone
You're with me every single day, believe me

Days I'll remember all my life
Days when you can't see wrong from right
You took my life
But then I knew that very soon you'd leave me
But it's all right
Now I'm not frightened of this world, believe me

I wish today could be tomorrow
The night is dark
It just brings sorrow, let it wait

Thank you for the days
Those endless days, those sacred days you gave me
I'm thinking of the days
I won't forget a single day, believe me

Days I'll remember all my life
Days when you can't see wrong from right
You took my life
But then I knew that very soon you'd leave me
But it's all right
Now I'm not frightened of this world, believe me
Days

Thank you for the days
Those endless days, those sacred days you gave me
I'm thinking of the days
I won't forget a single day, believe me

I bless the light
I bless the light that shines on you believe me
And though you're gone
You're with me every single day, believe me
Days

    General Commentan anthem for when you've accepted that somebody is gone from your life for good, and you can look back on everything that transpired between you and that person and find peace in the good times you shared, regardless of how things ended.

    General CommentGod, this song is so beautiful. I had a friend pass away and this is what I had read at the memorial for him. It's so moving, especially this passage:

    Thank you for the days,
    Those endless days, those sacred days you gave me.
    I'm thinking of the days,
    I won't forget a single day, believe me.

    The song also marked the end of Pete's days with the band. When they were recording, instead of "Days", he would write "DAZE" on his sheets.

    General CommentI watched Cutting It when everyone sang this at Allie's funeral. I used to think that it was simply about loving someone, but I think it's ultimately a sad song, and is a goodbye. Simply stunning.

    General CommentRay said in his autobiography that this was about a woman he was dating, but she ended up leaving him because he was a drunken mess and his wife was jealous. It's Ray's goodbye to her.

    To me it's always sounded like a funeral song though. It has made me cry in the past.

    General CommentI have not a clue to what the lead singers name is nor have i given much thought to the kinks other than listening to their best of cd, but i think its obvious that he's a true romantic ;)
