"Times Like These" as written by Taylor Hawkins, Christopher A. Shiflett, David Eric Grohl and Nate Mendel....
In times like these
And times like those
What will be will be
And so it goes

And it always goes
On and on and on and on and on
On and on and on and on and on it goes

And there's always been laughing, crying, birth, and dying
Boys and girls with hearts that take and give and break
And heal and grow and recreate and raise and nurture
But then hurt from time to times like these
And times like those
What will be will be
And so it goes

And there will always be stop and go and fast and slow
Action, reaction, sticks and stones and broken bones
Those for peace and those for war
And God bless these ones not those ones
But these ones made times like these
And times like those
What will be will be
And so it goes
And it always goes on and on
On and on and on and on and on on and on and on it goes

But somehow I know it won't be the same
Somehow I know it'll never be the same

    General CommentIn times like these,
    In times like those,
    What will be will be,
    And so it goes...
    And it always goes on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on it goes.

    And there's always been laughing, crying,
    Birthing, dying.
    Boys and girls with hearts that take
    Give and break.
    Heal and grow and recreate.
    And raise and nurture,
    But then hurt from time to...

    Times like these,

    What will be will be,
    And so it goes...

    And there's always been stop and go,
    And fast and slow,
    And action, reaction,
    Sticks and stones
    And broken bones,
    Those for peace and those for war,
    God bless these ones, not those ones, but these ones...
    Man...

    Times like these,
    Times like those,
    What will be will be,
    And so it goes...

    And it always goes
    On and on and on and on and on
    On and on and on and on it goes...

    General CommentI don't think this song is about anything specific. It's more just about the rhythm of life and how everything is always changing but overall nothing is ever really different. Beautiful lyrics, beautiful voice. Jack is amazing.

    General Commentcarefree song soft vocals.
    beautiful, i just learned to play and sing it. Get me.
    anyway its like whatevers happenin has happened a million times before, nothing you can do about it really.So chill.
    you exist in this minute window of time where before you millions of years have passed and in the future will too and it all repeats it self, make the most of it,
    get away from your computers and have a walk in the sun!
    Just jokin
