"Days" as written by Steven Drozd, Michael Ivins, Wayne Coyne and Ronald Lee Jones....
Hold me tight
Keep me cool
Going mad
Don't know what to do
Do I need a friend?
Well, I need one now

All the days of my life
All the days of my life
All the days I owe you

All I've done
I've done for me
All you gave
You gave for free
I gave nothing in return
And there's little left of me

All the days of my life
All the days of my life
All the days I owe you

In red-eyed pain I'm knocking on your door again
My crazy brain in tangles
Pleading for your gentle voice
Those storms keep pounding through my head and heart
I pray you'll soothe my sorry soul

All the days of my life
All the days of my life
All the days I owe you
All the days of my life
All the days of my life
All the days I owe you

All the days of my life
All the days of my life
All the days I owe you

    General CommentGuilt, regret, realizing that so much time has passed and not a moment of it was cherished...I hear this song and I wonder what I'm doing just sitting here listening to music. I should be out experiencing the world. *soft sigh*

    General CommentA lonely man crying for love. A catchy tune, but I feel a deep sadness inside of it. I can not explain.

    General Commentwhere lesser musicians would write something along the lines of "oh my god, i'm crying so much for you and i have to come to see you!" bowie write "in red-eyed pain i'm knocking on your door again..." i absolutely love that line! so subtle, yet so powerful.

    General CommentThis is one of my all-time favourite Bowie songs. It's so beautiful - yearning, tender. There's a real vulnerability and sadness in David's voice and lyrics that makes me ache. I can't quite express how much this song means to me. It makes me shiver and sigh, smile or cry, depending on my mood...

    General CommentI love many Bowie songs, but this one is just special. It's hard to explain why but it touches my heart whenever I listen to it. I've had some expierience about not understanding what it means to have someone around who really loves you and not taking him for granted. I have done many bad things and this song is so like I am feeling now. I couldnt express my feelings better than Bowie did in the lyrics. And everytime I listen to it, I feel so sad and so lonely and so angry because it's all my fault.

    General CommentIt's quite contrary to the song Within You. In an interview, he said that he is quite selfish about what he wrote in 2002 and 2003 (as I said in Cactus), but what I meant about the contrary was that in Within You the lyric was "Everything I've done I've done for you." In this, it's "All I've done, I've done for me."
