"These Days" as written by Ian Kevin Curtis, Peter Hook, Stephen Paul David Morris and Bernard Sumner....
Morning seems strange, almost out of place
Searched hard for you and your special ways
These days
These days

Spent all my time, learnt a killer's art
Took threats and abuse 'till I'd learned the part
Can you stay
For these days?

These days
These days

Used outward deception to get away
Broken-heart romance to make it pay

These days
These days

We'll drift through it all, it's the modern age
Take care of it all now these debts are paid
Can you stay
For these days?

    General Commenti think it's about being uncomfortable with the times, and having someone that can make it ok to carry on with it all.

    General CommentIan is asking his wife to stay with him because when he had very intense fits she would always be there for him. Debra became one of the few people Ian trusted, although he did have a very manic relationship with her.

    My InterpretationOne of my favorite JD songs! I always thought it was about an uptick in Ian's mood ("These Days" being happy days) since the lyrics are actually a bit optimistic ("now that these debts are paid") and speak about having someone else to face the world with. Also the music is really punky and happy sounding! For Joy Division anyway...
