"Days of the Old" as written by and David Ryan/withenshaw Strauchman....
We've been around on the other side of innocence
Now we're waking up to AM radio
I felt my fingers but I couldn't keep from laughing
Your body language said you knew that this would happen

I'm digging a hole for the days of the old
I'll put them two feet deep so I can reach 'em if I need 'em
Fingerprints show on the walls of my home
Buried, and turn off the radio, turn off the radio

I will always remember
Making out 'til the sun went down
Counting stars from the hood of a car
Catching my friends as they were falling down

Rise and shine to a headache and a question
My keys were lost and my morals came up missing
Opportunities were open for the taking
I tried to leave but couldn't keep the floors from shaking

Digging a hole from the days of the old
I'll put them two feet deep so I can reach 'em if I need 'em
Fingerprints show on the walls of my home
Buried, and turn off the radio, turn off the radio

I will always remember
Making out 'til the sun went down
Counting stars from the hood of a car
Catching my friends as they were falling down

Take me back to the ocean
Right before we had to drive away
We made a promise when we said goodbye
We swore it wouldn't be the last time

This is where the summer ends
No more clothes left dry in the sand
It was good, no, it was amazing
Tell me that you won't, won't forget about me

I will always remember
Making out 'til the sun went down
Counting stars from the hood of a car
Catching my friends as they were falling down

Take me back to the ocean
Right before we had to drive away
We made a promise when we said goodbye
We swore it wouldn't be the last time

Swore it wouldn't be the last time, the last time

    General Commentno actually it's "i felt my fingers and couldn't keep from laughing."
    its not rapping and its not racking.
    what part of that makes sense?

    General Commentdoesn't it make sense for it to be "i'm digging a hole for the days of the OLD" instead of days of the COLD?
    i don't know...
    i'm just guessing.
    it's only the name of the song...


    and this song is pretty self explanatory.

    General Commentyea, it's definitely days of the old.
    not only does it sound like it, but when i saw them live, they sang old, not cold.

    Swore it wouldn't be the last time, the last time.


    no lyrics for this song that are posted online are correct, so i did my best to correct them myself, they could be a little wrong still but better than what's posted above.
