"All The Days" as written by and Jann Arden Richards....
When I am old
I'll think of all the hearts I broke
To be here with you

When I am grey
And somewhat vague and too confused
I know I'll still remember you the very most

And all the days will wrap around our fingers
They'll hang around our hearts like bits of stars
And all the tears we've counted
All the memories we thought would linger
Disappear
They disappear

When I lay down
And close my eyes to see if Jesus died for me
And that there is a God

I'll wait for you
Beyond the lights where darkness fights
To keep the sun from coming up

And all the days will wrap around our fingers
They'll hang around our hearts like bits of stars
And all the tears we've counted
All the memories we thought would linger
Disappear
They disappear

Can't you see
That all of me
Is inside of you

Though I'm gone
I'm like a song
That sings and sighs and coos

When I am old
I'll sift through all the words I spoke
And picture all our happy times

I'll kiss your face
And think about the life we made
With all our might
With all that love

And all the days will wrap around our fingers
They'll hang around our hearts like bits of stars
And all the tears we've counted
All the memories we thought would linger
Disappear
Oh they disappear

    My OpinionWow, this is a tremendously meaningful song. Isn't The phrase "When I am grey And somewhat vague and too confused I know I'll still remember you" really everyone's goal - not to forgot the ones they love? And, of course, not to be forgotten?

    This song speaks with an honesty and tenderness that is absolutely extraordinary. To me when she refers to "memories we thought would linger Disappear" she is talking about regret, and how when we grow old we get to a point where we forget about our regrets and focus on the kindnesses around us. Suddenly regret has no power over you, which is immensely liberating, and time itself has a new meaning..."all the days will wrap around our fingers"...

    Even though I've never been much of a Jann Arden fan, it's such a magical sentiment from an entertainer who has excelled at hitting all the right notes in more ways than one. I really hope this song catches on because it is remarkably moving.
