People say don't rock the boat, let things go their own way
Ideas that once seem so right, now have gotten hard to say
I wish I could talk to you, you could talk to me
'Cause there very few of us left my friend
From the days that used to be.
Seem like such a simple thing to follow one's own dream
But possessions and concession are not often what they seem
They drag you down and load you down in disguise of security.
But we never had to make those deals
In the days that used to be.
Talk to me, my long lost friend, tell me how you are
Are you happy with your circumstance, are you driving a new car
Does it get you where you wanna go, with a seven year warranty
Or just another hundred thousand miles away
From days that used to be.

    General Commenti think its pretty much dedicated to the 1980's decadence and/or David Geffen; the latter whom had sued Neil for "not bearing the likeness of Neil Young", as Mr. Young had went an experimental route artistically during much of the 80's and consequently saw an overall sales drop.
