"Days Like These" as written by and Janis Ian....
On days like these
When the rain won’t fall
And the sky is so dry
That even birds can’t call
I can feel your tears
Disappearing in the air
Carried on the breeze
On days like these

Its years like these
That makes a young man old
Bend his back against the promises
That life should hold
They can make him wise
They can drive him to his knees
Nothing comes for free
On days like these

But you can’t reap what you don’t sow
And you can’t plant in fallow ground
So let us fill this empty earth with hope
Until the rains come down

In lives like these
Where every moment counts
I add up all the things
That I can live without
When the one thing left
Is the blessing of my dreams?
I can make my peace
With days like these

I can make my peace
With days like these

    Song MeaningEssentially, this song is about moving on. Embracing one's past as well as the future. Being hopeful rather than sad about missed opportunities.

    It tells us to appreciate what we have in life and to rise above expectations that society has set for us.

    And most of all, to love...

    I would for this song to play at my wedding. <3
