"Days That Are Over" as written by and Sondre Lerche Vaular....
One hundred thousand cars have passed this house
The celebration starts with laughter

Can it be that we're not clean?
The days have turned to haze
Tell me how we should have lied
To keep away this space
To keep from snowing in
Keep from lingering
Keep our worlds apart

When it come to letting go
Let the quicksand flow
When I write it in the sand
There is something wrong

Days that are over
Will not continue to last
If you try to construct the past

I leave the heat on to leave a trace
Of all the things the air was filled with

All the things I never knew and all the words I know
Now they all come out too late for you to realize
Satisfy my luck
This director's cut
Doesn't spare an inch

I have never seen this place and no surrounding walls
As the party turns to dust they all understand

Days that are over
Will not continue to last
If you try to construct the past

    General CommentHow can no one comment on such an amazing song? I was pointed towards Sondre Lerche by this one girl that I really liked, and that didn't work out, but at least I got some good music out of it.

    General CommentThis is probably my favorite song by Sondre. I just got a CD of his from a friend about two weeks ago and I fell in love with it. He needs to come to the Bay Area!

    What an amazing verse. He's holding onto the past, even after he tells us that he realizes, "Days that are over will not continue to last". A very true statement. It also reminds me of the title of a song by The Stills, "Yesterday Never Tomorrows".

    General CommentThis song is a great well rounded song that not only has a great beat and musical qualities that round up to a song from the Beatles' Sergeant Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band. This song means a lot to me. Sondre Lerche has my favorite artist for some time now and by far this song ranges up there among his best. Sondre croons and sings about life changing before his eyes and how he or the narrator struggles to change make things as they were before. I think anyone can relate to this song. I love the line where he sings:
    "When it come to letting go
    Let the quicksand flow
    When I write it in the sand
    There is something wronnnnnnnggggggggggg..."
    Absolutely amazing how his voice drags and makes the song even more utterly appealling. Although this song seems strictly reminiscent, it has its romantic values. A true gem.
